UK Muslim-Jewish cooking project to benefit from Meghan Markle $13,700 donation

APRIL 1, 2021 2:06 PM

(JTA) — An interfaith cooking project by British Jews and Muslims is set to receive $13,700 originating from a donation by Meghan Markle, the American actress who married into the U.K. royal family.

Markle, who holds the title of Duchess of Sussex, donated the money to Himmah, Arabic for “divine determination,” whose website describes the charity as devoted to relieving poverty.

According to a report Monday in The National News, Himmah intends to allocate some of Markle’s donation to Salaam Shalom Kitchen Nottingham, another organization whose website describes it as “a joint Muslim/Jewish project founded on the belief that working together across communities and perceived boundaries helps build community cohesion and break down barriers.”
