Closing of the foundation announcement

Dear Friends of the Foundation,

This is to inform you that the Joseph Interfaith Foundation is closing down at the end of December 2019 after 14 years.

We feel we have more than achieved our goals and moved Muslim-Jewish interfaith interactions to new horizons far beyond expectations. Now it is time for new organisations to start building on the strong and lasting foundation that we put down. Please see the valedictory project announcement for more information.

On behalf of myself and everyone at the Joseph Interfaith Foundation I would like to thank you for your participation, cooperation, support and encouragement. Most of all, thank you very much for your friendship

With fond regards and God’s blessings

The Joseph Interfaith Foundation

The Joseph Interfaith Foundation is the only national joint Muslim-Jewish interfaith organisation in the UK. We are committed to fostering engagement through constructive and realistic dialogue and interaction between the Muslim and Jewish communities in Britain. The Foundation also aims to promote a deeper understanding of both faiths among the general public.

One of the major shared principles of Judaism and Islam is education and co-operation for the sake of humanity and the welfare of society. Therefore, we provide diversity of forums where discussion, engagement and cooperation can take place based on conviction for the truth and mutual respect and commitment to shared principles of ethical citizenship.

The Foundation's work is focused on three major areas of disagreement and tension: 1) University campuses 2) Religious leadership, 3) The academics. Through our professionally effective and proactive initiatives we aim towards reducing and removing prejudice, misinformation and misunderstanding.

Our name is based on our shared eponymous biblical/qur'anic Joseph who demonstrates the height of achievements by a member of a religious minority in a multi-faith society without compromising his own religious identity. Thus it is our vision to engage our two religious communities in order to remove hatred and division, and instead to interact with each other as positive and contributing members of a multi-faith cohesive society.
