    18 Massachusetts Mosques to Take Part in 'Open Mosque Day'

    Eighteen mosques across Massachusetts are taking part in the third annual "Open Mosque Day.''

    Supporters of the Sunday event say it's meant to give members of the public a chance to meet their Muslim neighbors.

    CAIR-Massachusetts and the Islamic Council of New England say visitors will have a chance to tour a mosque, hear a brief introduction to Islam, and observe a Muslim prayer service.

    Martin Bentz, the event's organizer, says inviting neighbors in to see what a mosque looks like helps to break down walls between groups.

    The open mosque events will generally take place between 3 and 6 p.m.

    Participating mosques are located across the state, including in Boston, Cambridge, Worcester, Framingham, Chelmsford, Lynn, Hadley, Quincy, Sharon, Dartmouth, Wayland, Medford, Chelsea, Haverhill, West Springfield, and Malden.
