The House of One.
Three Religions under one roof.

Berlin is soon to become home to something truly unique. Jews, Christians, and Muslims are planning to build a house of worship here – one that brings a synagogue, a church, and a mosque together under one roof. The three separate sections will be linked by a communal room in the center of the building. This will serve as a meeting place, where worshippers and members of the public can come together and learn more about the religions and each other.

The Initiators

The House of One is the product of a grassroots group of three religious communities. The initial idea came from a protestant church community which then joined forces with a Jewish community - with a rabbinical seminary - and a Muslim initiative for dialogue.

I believe that to achieve peace- and respectful coexistence of all religions has been and still is one of the most important challenges of our times. And if this project can help it's worth every brick we can afford.

Nicht der erste Stein von mir und ganz sicher folgen weitere...! Der heutige Tag möge trotz der eher schwierigen Nachrichtenlage der friedlichen Koexistenz der Religionen dienlich sein. Menschen sollten mit den Herzen hören. weniger mit den Ohren...!

Ein sinnvolles Weihnachtsgeschenk für meine Freundin Petra.
Ich bin in keiner Glaubensgemeinschaft, aber dieses Projekt möchte ich unterstützen, weil ich noch ein wenig Hoffnung auf Frieden, Verständigung, Verständnis und Toleranz habe.

School competition inspired by "Nathan the Wise"

On 14 April 2020, the foundation stone for the House of One will be laid on Petriplatz in Berlin Mitte. The date commemorates the Berlin premiere of the play "Nathan the Wise" by Gotthold Ephraim Lessing in 1783. Lessing's Ring Parable promotes the attitude of treating all religions with respect and tolerance, but also the claim of religions to do good.

The location

The history of Berlin is filled with great successes, new beginnings, sudden endings, and immeasurable guilt. Its Jews were emancipated around 1800, and then destroyed between 1933 and 1945. The Berlin Wall became the symbol of a divided world when it was built in 1961, and was then transformed into an enduring image of peace as it fell in 1989. The House of One on Petriplatz, the medieval birthplace of Berlin, aims to add a new and hopeful chapter to the diverse history of this city.
