Press Release - National Open Mosque Day

Posted on: 19 October 2016

—FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—

BAYONNE, NJ (OCTOBER 19, 2016) —Joining the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations, the Bayonne Muslim community will host an open house on Sunday, October 23rd from 1-3PM at their location on 625 Avenue C. At this open house, we will dedicate time to a short presentation on the basic teachings of Islam and then open the floor to questions. Visitors are also welcome to observe the activities of the mosque, including the afternoon prayer. 

This initiative is one of many that the Bayonne Muslim community hopes to engage in to promote civic engagement and a culture of acceptance and safety. Muslims have been the subject of many political and social discussions, including the presidential debates. We hope to use this opportunity to both document our narrative and engage in conversations with our neighbors that will help us understand and embrace each other.

We ask our visitors to please be mindful that shoes must be removed at the door of the mosque and that modest attire is recommended.
