Hear Our Story

Tri-Faith Initiative is a unique and ambitious project in the field of interfaith relations in design, scale, and scope. It brings together into permanent residency a synagogue, church, mosque, and interfaith center on one 38-acre campus in the middle of America’s heartland.

A model for peaceful co-existence that builds on America’s promise of religious freedom and our desire for understanding.

A conversation began between the leaders of Temple Israel and leaders of Omaha’s Muslim community about both groups’ land and parking needs. This informal conversation quickly turned into something much deeper. 

In working together, our vision is to build bridges of respect, trust and acceptance, to challenge stereotypes of each other, to learn from one another, and to counter the influence of extremists and agents of hate.
