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.
BRINGING ALL FAITHS TOGETHER IN ORDER TO FOSTER RESPECT, INSTILLING DIGNITY, AND PROMOTING COMPASSION FOR ALL PEOPLE.
Through themes such as service and sacrifice, the participation has increased by hundreds since its inception. After the 2009 event, various entities came together and decided to take this effort to the next level. This is when Memphis Interfaith was officially formed.

We’re always looking for more people to join this effort.
