The Tri-Faith Commons is the only place of its kind in the world. It brings together a synagogue, church, mosque, and interfaith center on 38-acres in the American heartland of Omaha, Nebraska.
Tri-Faith is a national model and center for interfaith learning, collaboration, and celebration.
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.
Over the past year+ of pandemic and upheaval, we’ve adapted to ensure people of all faiths are safe and included — whether they’re worshipping, working, or walking down the street.
From this intentionally diverse space in Omaha, we bridge divides among three faith communities, neighbors throughout our larger local community, and, increasingly, people across the U.S. and around the world.
By joining our circle of Bridge Builders, you can reach more of our neighbors with this message of connection and hope, bringing more Omahans together. As a Bridge Builder, your gifts actively cultivate trust, empathy, and justice, while dispelling division and hate.
