To be clear, all three of our Jumma services will be canceled: Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and Pasadena. The doors of all three buildings will be closed on Friday. The Center will NOT be open for daily prayers.
We are also working to make our Sunday Programs and other educational programs available online. This includes adult and youth programs. Stay tuned for more details in our weekly newsletter, which you should receive later today.
As of now, the only exception to the ICSC shutdown will be the Food Pantry, which will continue to operate on Saturday mornings in the parking lot rather than the social hall.
The board of the Islamic Center made this decision out of an abundance of caution and in keeping with Islamic teachings which prioritize public health over religious gatherings. As we work together to keep our community members healthy and safe, we ask you to support the Islamic Center today with a generous donation in order to support our ongoing programs during this uncertain time.
