Chapel Hill’s first mosque

By Reema Khrais

The Chapel Hill Islamic Society will build a mosque off Martin Luther King Boulevard and are waiting to for approval on the zoning change. It could be a year before the mosque is ready to open its doors. Some Muslims are eager to see how the community respond to the mosque, but they anticipate it will be better received than mosques in other areas of the country. The United Church of Chapel Hill offered a class on Islam so area adults could learn more about their neighbors.
