Alhamdulillah, July 2022 has been declared as Muslim Heritage Month in Boca Raton. The declaration was made possible by the great work and efforts of Br Bassem Halabi and Islamic Center of Boca Raton. Local Muslim leaders in collaboration with South Florida Muslim Federation have been working tirelessly towards recognition of the contributions of Muslim community in South Florida and promoting equity and diversity. The School District of Palm Beach County recently announced Eid as day off for 2022-23 school calendar as a result of these efforts. Several cities across Broward County declared April as Muslim Heritage Month and BCPS has also included Eid as day off for next school year.
