Nottingham’s Salaam Shalom Kitchen Sees Muslims and Jews Feed the Needy

“This is for access to anyone – they don’t have to be Jewish, they don’t have to be Muslim, they don’t have to be anything.”

Salaam Shalom Kitchen

A new joint effort by Jews and Muslims in Nottingham, England, called the Salaam Shalom Kitchen, is working to help feed the needy with a soup kitchen.

You remember Nottingham, don’t you? It is where Robin Hood lived and where he stole from the rich and gave to the poor. Now Jews and Muslims have come together there for a new kind of redistribution of wealth.

Salaam Shalom kitchen (SASH) is a joint enterprise lead by the Nottingham Liberal Synagogue and the Muslim charity Himmah aimed at providing a safe place where members of the public who are struggling can go and obtain a free meal. It meets every Wednesday at The Bridge Centre in Hyson Green, Nottingham.

Himmah co-founder Sajid Mohammed told the Nottingham Post in a recent interview that SaSh was also about addressing other social issues.

“In the last 12 months we’ve seen a rise in Islamophobia and anti-Semitism, ” he said. “Nottingham for the most part has been quite sheltered but we felt that now is the right moment to give hope and demonstrate our communities’ values of compassion, dignity and care to others.”

Salaam Shalom Kitchen 2John Youens, a member of the Nottingham Liberal Synagogue’s steering committee, added, “This is for access to anyone – they don’t have to be Jewish, they don’t have to be Muslim, they don’t have to be anything. This is open to anyone who needs access to it in the community.”
