Jumu’ah Prayers

During the academic year, Jumu’ah prayers are held weekly on Fridays in the upper level of Earl Hall. The khutbah (sermon) takes place at approximately 1:15 to 1:50 PM and the prayer concludes at approximately 2:00. For weekly updates on Jumu’ah, please refer to our Facebook page and contact us requesting to be added to our mailing list.

For the summer of 2013 (until August 30th), Jumu’ah services are being held in the chapel room of the Interchurch Center, located at 475 Riverside Drive. There is an additional entrance on Claremont Avenue between West 120th Street and West 119th Street.

The Columbia MSA is currently seeking trained khateebs (speakers) or equally qualified individuals to give khutbahs . If you are interested, please contact us here.
