Jummah (Arabic: جمعة‎) (also known as Friday prayer) is a congregational prayer (salaat) that Muslims hold every Friday around noontime. It is mentioned in the Qur'an as:

"O you who believe! when the call is made for prayer on Friday, then hasten to the remembrance of Allah and leave off trading; that is better for you, if you know. And when the prayer is ended, then disperse in the land and seek of Allah's bounty, and remember Allah much, that ye may be successful." (Qur'an 62: 9-10)

Jummah is every Friday in 148/149 in the Duke Wellness Center on West Campus.The location is 305 Towerview Road,First Floor, (next to Penn Pavilion in Campus Center).
