What time of day are Muslims' Friday prayers? Doesn't this conflict with the synagogue's regular Shabbat service?

Learned Mother Of Zion,

I think Pam's head will explode when she sees this. I'm going to tell her. :)

Shabbat service is Friday night, Muslim Friday prayers would be earlier in the day. I am pretty sure that the temple has worked out a schedule.

There's a video at the link, but they don't provide an embed code.

Great story, thanks for posting it. ;)

Yep, the Friday prayer is always around midday. The prayer time begins just after high (solar) noon, but on Fridays the big congregational prayer is preceded by a sermon which is usually fairly short (i.e. about 20-30 minutes, nothing like the seemingly interminable Sunday masses of my childhood, heh).

Thanks! ;) I just found out we have one more day, so Eid isn't until Sunday. There was some explanation about the astronomical new moon, moonset, sunset...it pretty much made my eyes glaze over.

If it's a bigger synagogue, they may have multiple places where services can be held. The place down the street from my parents isn't a BIG shul, but they've got a small downstairs chapel, a main sanctuary, and a multi-use auditorium with a mobile ark that is also used for some services. They may have scheduled around, or they may just have set it up so that the mosque can use spaces that aren't being used for erev Shabbos services.
