Not without us
Berlin invites from October 1 to 3 to the Bürgerfest and the House of One celebrates with
Berlin has been reunited for 28 years now. 28 years in which the city has changed enormously. With the numerous people who have since made Berlin their new home, the religious spectrum also expanded. This development has prepared the ground for the House of One. The changes have not only made this worldwide unique place possible, open to all religions and secular people, but also necessary.
If you would like to learn more about the project, you can visit the
House of One at the Bürgerfest on the Straße des 17. Juni at the
"Pavilion of Religions" (themed area "History & Remembrance")
on all three days until 8 pm.
The House of One, the Archdiocese of Berlin, the Evangelical Church Berlin-Brandenburg-Silesian Upper Lusatia (EKBO), the Berlin Forum of Religions and the Humanist Association of Germany would like to set an example for tolerance, diversity and freedom under the motto "Only with you". In the "Pavilion of Religions" - created by these institutions - Jews, Christians, Muslims and humanists prepared a joint appearance. Water as a design element of the pavilion is a symbolic expression of this shared experience. Water plays a central role in every religion or ideology as the original source of life. Be it in Christianity for baptism or in Judaism, Islam, Hinduism and others for the ritual purification of body and mind.
The House of One: Jews, Christians and Muslims are building a synagogue, a church and a mosque together in Berlin - as well as a central room for exchange with the secular majority society. Already today, the house lives as a place of lived diversity, a laboratory of tolerance with workshops for school classes, intercultural trainings and events. The foundation stone for the building on Petriplatz will be laid in autumn 2019.
