Some events in the past include

Tea for Two

The Muslim holiday of Eid Al Adha and Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur fell on the same day in 2014. Local Jewish and Muslim women were invited to learn about each other’s holidays and share your traditions while enjoying tea, light refreshments and great company. We had a great turnout and were surprised by the commonalities in our faith traditions.

Race for the Cure

We joined the fight against breast cancer! Annually we form a team to participate in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Keep an eye out for our pink hijabs!

Muslim Women are Happy!
