This is our 10th year of coordinating a Muslim Jewish Christmas, an event where members of the Muslim community and members of the Jewish community get together.

Central – HCRJ, 801 Bering Dr.
Cypress Islamic Center, 16103 Cypress Rosehill Rd.  (consolidated to the Central event because of unforseen circumstances with our Jewish friends)

Date – Tuesday, December 24th
Time – 2:00p – 4:00p

The theme for this year is “Standing Up for One Another.” As division and hatred become more common in our communities, honest conversation is something that we must do. As both of our communities are at the receiving end of hate, it’s important for us to come together to better understand one another.

The goal of this event has always been very simple – to come together on a day when we don’t have any other commitments and talk about our similarities and differences surrounding a specific theme.

You don’t need to be a scholar to talk about yourself and your views. You just need to be able to voice your opinions with honesty and compassion and have the ability to listen to another side.

Will there be food? Yes! It’s a potluck. Please bring a small appetizer you can share, preferably something you can share a story over.

KIDS? Bring them! We’ll have activities for children and teens.

If you have any questions, please email Sumaiyah Khan, our Outreach Coordinator, at sumaiyah@minaretfoundation.com
