House of One invites to the first "Conference of multi-faith institutions“

multi-religiös Mehrreligionenhaus Bern

The number of projects in which several religions come together and share a house is growing worldwide. For the first time, the House of One is inviting several multi-religious houses to a - corona-related virtual - conference on Tuesday.

 

The event is intended to be a first step towards a network of multi-religious institutions worldwide like the House of One in Berlin or the houses in Bern, Hanover, Stockholm, Vienna, Omaha, Tbilisi and Wilhelmshaven. What unites them is the idea of understanding and togetherness.

In these special places, lived faith meets the idea of open discussion among different people.Glaubensüberzeugung an der des Anderen endet und das mit dieser Erkenntnis Fragen verbunden sind, die Menschen nicht beantworten können.

We are convinced that every multi-religious house promotes dialogue and the peaceful coexistence of people. We are happy to see that there are more and more of this projects and that they start to connect, support and learn from each other.

The conference will take place on Tuesday, 24 November 2020, 2.30 pm to 4.00 pm.

Rabbi Andreas Nachama
