Tri Faith Initiative

To foster and build understanding, respect and trust is a challenging and urgent task in our increasingly complex and global society. Promoting peaceful co-existence is a global priority in a world where the focus is often on fear. Accepting each other’s religious expression brings us together as a community and creates a voice for a hopeful future.

The Tri-Faith Initiative of Omaha, Nebraska, is meeting this challenge. Members of the three Abrahamic faiths – Judaism, Christianity and Islam are committed to promote mutual respect and uphold the right to proclaim one’s own religion and serve God in his/her own way.

To advance this mission, the Tri-Faith Initiative has set an ambitious course to build a Center to co-locate with Temple Israel, a new Episcopal church and the American Institute of Islamic Studies and Culture. These four buildings will form a multi-faith neighborhood of collaboration. The Tri-Faith Center will open its doors to all people in Omaha, the heartland and ultimately the global community. Mutual respect and acceptance is a vital and urgent need.
