We were invited to an Iftar Dinner held at LVMPD’s Summerlin Area Command Center on May 20, 2020. Many Muslim community leaders from Las Vegas were invited to this gathering. It was a great platform to enhance interfaith understanding and connections. We would like to thank Captain Sasha Larkin and her stuff. We also thank to the meal sponsors.
This might be one of the most meaningful International Nurses Day as we are passing through a pandemic. On May 12 2020, Silver Sage Foundation distributed food at Sunrise Hospital to support the staff there both emotionally and physically. We sincerely thank nurses, doctors and all health personnel. We also would like to thank the volunteers participated in this initiative and Istanbul Mediterranean restaurant.
Today, on 22nd of April 2020, religious leaders from Nevada came together and prayed for all humanity going through the corona virus pandemic. This event was a beacon of hope for a future world where different beliefs and faiths can live together in harmony and peace. We would like to thank Ken Heck, Dr. Asim Cengiz, Rabbi Felipe Goodman from Temple Beth Sholom, Father Bill Kenny from Holy Spirit Catholic Church, Michael Gardner from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and Imam Mujahid Ramadan from Interfaith Council of Southern Nevada.
We also would like to thank Dr. Robert Fowler from Victory Missionary Baptist Church. He was scheduled to join to the prayer, but he was unable to join due to technical issues.
As COVID-19 spreads through our nation and our community, we are all feeling anxious, uncertain and perhaps alone. Please join our Religious Leaders as we come together in prayer.
Dear Silver Sage Foundation community members,
As the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak continues to spread around the world and in our nation, we feel obliged to take precautions and make a statement as Silver Sage Foundation to inform our community about this topic. Here is a list of recommendations given by our foundation:
- Community gatherings (monthly meetings, picnics, the Friday prayers etc…) are canceled indefinitely.
- There will be no interstate and international travels made, especially by airlines.
- Extra attention on hygiene should be paid. Hands should be washed regularly and handshaking should be avoided.
- Malls, restaurants, hotels and other crowded places should be avoided as much as possible.
- Water, food and cleaning products should be purchased enough for at least several weeks.
- Children should not be taken to the places of extra curriculum courses, sports events and other kind of gatherings.
- No plans should be made on Ramadan dinners (iftars), and these dinners should be kept in small circles and private homes.
Along with these decisions and recommendations, we would like to encourage everyone to pray for our community, for the Americans and ultimately for all of the world in these troubling times. May this epidemic ends swiftly and people return to their daily life as it was before.

We celebrated the Women’s Day at our location with food, activities, folkloric dance show and speeches. We would like to thank everyone participated in the event. And we would like to celebrate every women’s valuable presence in our lives.
We volunteered at Three Squares’ Sort-a-thon event to help the people in need and elevate the social standards in Las Vegas.
We took part at the first meeting of the Nevadans for the Common Good in 2020. The meeting was held on 9th of January.
137 community leaders participated at the event.
Professor Zeki Saritoprak from John Carroll University gave a talk on Mary’s significance in Islam. Epiphany Episcopal Church hosted the event presided by The Reverend Rick O’Brien. The meeting was thought provoking and quite interactive with comments and questions from the audience.
Professor Zeki Saritoprak gave a lecture on the subject of “Jesus and Islam” at our location. With an audience consists of both Christians and Muslims, it was an engaging meeting and discussion.
