USAGSO Celebrates Girl Scout Week: Girl Scout Jummah

Celebrate Girl Scout Jummah with USA Girl Scouts Overseas

About this Event

Join USA Girl Scouts Overseas to celebrate Girl Scout Jummah! In Arabic, Friday is called Yawm al-Jum’ah, meaning the Day of Assembly. Muslims gather for congregational worship during the Friday midday prayer. Jum’ah is not a “sabbath” on which no work is done; rather, Muslims take just enough time off from work or school to attend a service at a neighborhood masjid.

During our hour together, girls will learn about the khutbah, a Muslim two-part sermon traditionally delivered on Fridays. The program will allow for a time of personal prayer, or du’a.

This will be a wonderful opportunity for everyone to reflect on our own personal beliefs and how they’re echoed in the Girl Scout Law, as well as learn something new about someone else’s faith.

Who: This event is open to all program grade levels (Girl Scout Daisies through Ambassadors) and adult volunteers.

When: 6am EST / 12pm CET / 8pm JST

Cost: $5.00 per girl, adults may attend at no cost with their Girl Scout(s); a Girl Scout Week Program Pass, which provides access to all eight of our Girl Scout Week programs, is available for $25.00 (represents a $15.00 savings)

Location: A confirmation email with Zoom meeting details will be sent 1-2 days prior to the event to the email address provided during registration.

Additional Information: Please keep an eye on this space and our Overseas Girl Scout World Shop for information on how to purchase the Girl Scout Jummah patch as soon as it is available
