French mosques hold open house

January 19, 2016

Hundreds of mosques throughout France held open houses recently to offer a “tea of fraternity” and “create spaces of conviviality and exchange,” according to a report in Le Figaro.

The open houses typically attracted 100 to 300 visitors.

Nationwide participation figures were not available. In eight of France’s administrative regions, an estimated 75% of mosques participated, according to Anwar Kbibech, president of the French Council of the Muslim Faith.
