What does building a Culture of Health mean to Islamic Center of Jersey City as an organization?
Building a "Culture of Health" encourages and enables the community to understand that good health includes spiritual, physical and intellectual areas. The Islamic Center provides a place for prayer and meditation and a place to learn about the community and how to become part of it. The ICJC recognizes the importance of faith as an attribute of good health and the importance of helping immigrants and refugees to know the American culture and to be able to start their journey in the U.S.
