WEST WINDSOR, NJ — Construction work at a new mosque in West Windsor Township has reached the halfway mark as it continues on a feverish pace. The building of the Institute of Islamic Studies is being looked forward to by the number of Muslim families who live in the area. The institute conducted its activities in temporary rental facilities for two decades of its existence.
The new building will consist of 15,000 square feet and will cater to multiple needs of the community.
“We will also have weekend Sunday school programs for children and adults,” a spokesperson of the mosque told the Princeton Packet. “We will have educational seminars discussing topics that are of interest to the community.”
The new mosque will also be beneficial to the larger community, he said.
“As it adds more diversity to West Windsor Township and culture and brings yet another flavor to the mosaic of our very diverse community. It is this beautiful American tradition of ‘Unity in Diversity’ that will allow our township to flourish and grow.”
