Bringing people together, Building bridges across sections of society, Promoting understanding between all faiths and cultures
The Memphis Interfaith project started in 2007 as a dinner with the intention of bringing people of all faiths together to break bread. It has since continued as an annual dinner in the Islamic month of Ramadan with a series of themes addressed by distinguished speakers of diverse faiths. Additionally, Memphis Interfaith brings together interfaith volunteers to package meals that are shipped to areas of need in the Western hemisphere.
We are committed to bring all faiths together to foster respect and appreciation for the dignity and wholesome spirituality cultivated within diverse faith traditions and to promote compassion and understanding for all.
To be a volunteer service organization inspired by the best in Islamic values and effective in enabling the Greater Memphis community to appreciate the best in the values of all faith traditions.
WHAT’S HAPPENING TO OUR PLANET, AND WHAT CAN WE DO ?
"Corruption and disorder have appeared on land and in the sea because of what the hands of people have done. Thus He causes people to taste the consequence of some of what they have done, so that they may come back ( to their proper role)."
Al-Qur’an - Surah (Chapter) 30, Ayah (Verse) 41
All 2020 Events have been postponed indefinitely
In light of the unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak impacting our community, friends, and family, WE HAVE DECIDED TO POSTPONE OUR MEAL PACKING EVENTS AND ANNUAL RAMADAN DINNER INDEFINITELY.
Our decision to postpone our events is a heavy one as we will deeply miss the company of our wonderful guests and interfaith volunteers. However, we will be gauging the national guidelines and will reconvene once conditions are ideal.
