New Muslims

The Islamic Society of Boston holds several classes to educate our neighbors about the basic beliefs and practices of Islam. These classes were initiated by the Muslim American Society Boston Chapter in 1997 in Cambridge. The classes have now expanded to four different programs. Classes are held at both the ISBCC (100 Malcolm X Blvd in Roxbury) and the ISB (204 Prospect St in Cambridge). All classes are free, and walk-ins are welcome!

If you are interested in more information about our various classes about Islam or want to volunteer, please contact islam101@masboston.org
