TTN Learns About Being Muslim in America!

(Posted March 5, 2019)

TTN members filled an entire table at a great event hosted by the National Council of Jewish Woman Bergen County Section. After a delicious deli lunch, we enjoyed the presentation by Sabeeha Rehman on being Muslim in America.

With a lot of humor, Sabeeha told the large audience all about how she was married to a man she'd never met in Pakistan and found herself a young bride in Queens, New York. The couple later moved to Staten Island and realized they had to forge a Muslim community for the sake of their children. Many in the crowd could identify with Ms. Rehman's desire to blend her religious traditions with the culture of her new American home.

TTN members had a great time learning together about this woman's experience.
