    Many would relish having coffee and cake in a comfortable and cozy environment. Add to the mix, a heart-warming and friendly conversation about various current issues and it may make the ideal Fall evenings for some. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Metro Detroit is launching an open house “Coffee, Cake and True Islam” on every Thursday at their Community Center in Rochester Hills between 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM. Coffee, Cake and True Islam will be an ongoing weekly event for an informal and candid conversation about Islam and will be held every Thursday intended for neighbors, academia, students, media and anyone else interested in learning about the faith from its followers. No doubt we get to hear a lot about the religion of Islam from the media - unfortunately mostly in a negative light. However, the casual setting of these ongoing events is intended to give anyone curious enough theopportunity to meet local Muslims and hear firsthand what exactly Islam's true teachings.  All questions are welcome and will be addressed in an informal environment over a free cup of coffee and cake. These events will hopefully prove to be indeed a food for thought. The goal of the gathering is to create an environment where people can freely question and express their understanding of Islam and also meet local Muslims. Join us for a warm cup of coffee, cake, and some engaging conversation. Events are free and open to the public. Please review details of the event below and if you have any further questions please contact the organizers at the email address below.  If you go: •Who: Ahmadiyya Muslim Community – Metro Detroit •What: Coffee, Cake & True Islam •When: 7 p.m. Every Thursday •Where: Masjid Mahmood (Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Center) - 1730 W.

    An Immigrant Community’s Life & Legacy exhibition will begin a three-venue tour of New York City starting Wednesday, May 25, 2016, at the New York City Department of Records and Information Services. Additional stops include the Ellis Island National Museum Oct. 1, 2016 – Jan. 9, 2016 and the Metropolitan College of New York Jan. 20, 2017 – March 24, 2017. From 1880-1940, Little Syria in Manhattan’s lower west side was home to one of the largest and earliest communities of Arab Americans in the nation. Before the construction of the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel and the World Trade Center, Manhattan’s lower west side was home to one of the largest and earliest communities of Arab Americans in the nation. Little Syria, NY: An Immigrant Community’s Life and Legacy tells the story of this neighborhood from its beginnings in the late 1800s to its legacy in Brooklyn and beyond.

    Many would relish having coffee and cake in a comfortable and cozy environment. Add to the mix, a heart-warming and friendly conversation about various current issues and it may make the ideal Fall evenings for some. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Metro Detroit is launching an open house “Coffee, Cake and True Islam” on every Thursday at their Community Center in Rochester Hills between 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM. Coffee, Cake and True Islam will be an ongoing weekly event for an informal and candid conversation about Islam and will be held every Thursday intended for neighbors, academia, students, media and anyone else interested in learning about the faith from its followers. No doubt we get to hear a lot about the religion of Islam from the media - unfortunately mostly in a negative light. However, the casual setting of these ongoing events is intended to give anyone curious enough theopportunity to meet local Muslims and hear firsthand what exactly Islam's true teachings.  All questions are welcome and will be addressed in an informal environment over a free cup of coffee and cake. These events will hopefully prove to be indeed a food for thought. The goal of the gathering is to create an environment where people can freely question and express their understanding of Islam and also meet local Muslims. Join us for a warm cup of coffee, cake, and some engaging conversation. Events are free and open to the public.
