The Muslim Community Center – East Bay strives to provide a welcoming space for everyone in our congregation to grow and to feel what community should feel like.

Since 2018, two dedicated mothers in the congregation have hosted a toddler and children’s group in the Uyghur language for San Francisco Bay Area residents belonging to this ethnic Muslim minority in China. This group meets 10 a.m. to noon on Saturdays from August to May. The playgroup sessions are free.

The Uighur playgroup supplements Mommy & Me in English that the MCC has hosted since 2016. Both groups aim to plant the love for Islam in our children from the formative ages two to six through song, play, game, and crafts.  Both groups require a mother or a female relative to accompany each child. The group has grown to include children 8 to 16.
