BERKELEY, California — Northern California’s first female-led mosque officially opened its doors in Berkeley on Friday, April 14, 2017, to the public.
The mosque is getting a lot of attention as only the second women-run mosque in the U.S. The first is in Los Angeles.
Qal’bu Mayraym Mosque makes it clear this is a place where women not only feel welcome, but also powerful because they are running the show. However, men are also welcome to the mosque and there is no separation between the genders.
