Project ambassador and co-builder of the House of One: Imam Omar Kobine Layama

"When I am asked if I am a Sunni or a Shiite, I always say first: I am a Muslim and a bridge builder." With energy and confidence, Imam Layama confronts the excesses of violence in the politically fragile and poor country CAR. He is a bridge builder between religions - also for the diversity in his own religion. Imam Layama stands thus for the idea of the project ambassadors of the House of One. We are pleased to support him and his colleagues in the plan to build a "Maison de la Paix" in Bangui.

Statement by Imam Kadir Sanci on the occasion of the meet2respect tandem tour 2018

"People of different religions and worldviews share a bicycle and set out on the road, sharing responsibility with them, as we do in the House of One, where Jews, Christians and Muslims have joined forces to implement their peacekeeping mission. We share a house and take responsibility together. "

 

 

Statement by Pastor Corinna Zisselsberger on the occasion of the meet2respect tandem tour 2018

"I think it's good when imams and rabbis together set a sign of respect and tolerance, because we see the peace-building and unifying power that we also gain in our multi-religious prayers and conversations in the House of One, make it visible on the streets and in the publicity. "

 

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.

The Architecture

The House of One is a contemporary expression of religious life and as such must be expressed in an equally modern architectural language. Learn more about the design of the Berlin based architects Kuehn Malvezzi.

Ich möchte meinem Papa Schorse zum Geburtstag 2 Steine schenken verbunden mit dem Wunsch, dass auch eines Tages in Israel Christen Juden und Muslime friedlich nebeneinander beten können!

Daniel Doubleday, Germany

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...!

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.
