Coalitions plans interfaith campus in Omaha NEW YORK (JTA)
About Abraham’s Tent
On March 27, 2009, leaders of the three faith groups who make up the Tri-Faith Initiative will be in Omaha to speak at the event. Rabbi Peter Knobel, president of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, Dr. Ingrid Mattson, president of The Islamic Society of North America and Presiding Bishop Katherine Jefferts Schori of The Episcopal Church will meet in Omaha. The evening included evening prayer services for the three faith groups, followed by a dinner and conversation about peace in our time. Large screens and audio systems allowed 1000+ people to sit in on their conversation.
The historic program will bring members of the community together for worship, celebration and a dynamic conversation on the topic of Peace—a common theme in each faith. The Tri-Faith Initiative is a partnership of the three Abrahamic faith groups — Christianity, Judaism and Islam. A remarkable project is taking place in Omaha, Nebraska. The Episcopal Diocese of Nebraska, Temple Israel and the American Institute of Islamic Studies and Culture have come together, planning to build a joint campus which will house a mosque, a temple and a church plus a shared facility on a large campus.
This is the only undertaking of its kind we know of in the world. On this site we will keep you in touch with the progress on the plans for the Tri-Faith campus and other news of successful interfaith projects around the nation and around the world.
