The open house events will be held from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

 "Although most mosques are always open to the public, “Visit a Mosque Day” offers all Georgians a chance to greet their neighbors in a casual setting," said Rosemin Omar, one of the event organizers. "Given the surge in division across our nation, “Visit a Mosque Day” is all the more important. We hope that events like this will help foster a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood across Georgia."
