Here is a list of our current interfaith projects: 

  • Peace by Piece

This is a group of Jews and Muslims learning together, supporting local vulnerable communities, and showcasing emerging artists through a busy programme of regular events: 

Feeding Folk is an interfaith project designed to provide meals to London’s homeless on two Sundays a month. This remarkable project was set up by a group of young Muslim adults, initially running it from a home kitchen. Each month, we prepare 150-200 warm and healthy meals in the West London Synagogue kitchen, before packing them to deliver to Victoria, Camden, Marble Arch, and right across London, wherever they are needed. 

The Peace by Piece Study Programme brings together a group of Jews and Muslims for a year-long programme exploring Jewish and Muslim faith and culture facilitated by Rabbi Sybil Sheridan. This programme includes a five-day trip to Morocco to learn about the remarkable story of co-existence that underpins the endurance and success of this nation. For more information on how to enrol in the next programme please contact Rabbi Sybil Sheridan directly.

Our Peace by Piece Youth Programme is about to celebrate its 8th birthday! Our students participate in a year-long series of meetings and educational trips to explore each other’s faiths and practices, and to learn about co-existence and community building. 

  • Nisa Nashim Marylebone 

This group is part of a nationwide Jewish-Muslim women’s network that meet regularly to share a vegetarian meal and explore topics from the Jewish and Muslim traditions. To find out more and to register, please contact Rachel Godfrey 

  • Scriptural Reasoning

This is a dynamic and evolving practice in which people of different religious commitments – usually Jews, Christians and Muslims – meet together to read and debate their sacred texts. The goal is growth in the understanding of one another’s traditions and a deeper exploration of the texts and their possible interpretations. To find out more please contact Rachel Godfrey

  • Marylebone Foodcycle 

West London Synagogue, partnering with St. Paul’s Church in Marylebone, runs Marylebone Foodcycle.  FoodCycle is an initiative that helps volunteers collect surplus food from supermarkets to then cook free community meals to combat food poverty and social isolation in their local area. We use this food to serve community meals weekly on a Wednesday afternoon and evening. For more information please contact Nic Schlagman
