The Muslim chaplain unites students from all different ethnicities and backgrounds around their Muslim faith.
The Brandeis Muslim Student Association (MSA) serves as both the main prayer and social organization for Muslim students. The MSA hosts social events such as meet and greets, potluck dinners, cultural cooking events, interfaith dialogues with other organizations, and academic lectures.
In addition, the Muslim chaplain and the MSA help Muslim students on campus meet their religious needs, including on or off campus prayer, and finding Halal foods. The MSA helps organize holiday prayers for Ramadan, Eid and other Muslim holidays.
A Muslim Prayer Space is located in the lower level of Usdan Student Center, complete with a prayer area, gathering space, small kitchen, wudu washing station and an office.
Jum’ah prayers are held at 1:15 p.m. each Friday during the academic year.
