RJ Magazine: Tri-Faith Campus Going Up in Omaha

Originally posted in RJ Magazine.

Tri-Faith worship service, 2009.In December 2011, Temple Israel of Omaha, Nebraska co-purchased 35 acres of land in conjunction with the Episcopal Diocese of Nebraska and the American Institute of Islamic Studies and Culture to co-create the world's first tri-faith campus. Houses of worship and study for the three Abrahamic faiths are being built on adjacent parcels of land. The Tri-Faith Initiative of Omaha--comprised of all three organizations--is also constructing its own center to house social, educational, and conference programming designed to facilitate understanding among Judaism, Christianity, and Islam locally and internationally.

The synagogue, slated for completion in 2013, will be the first building in the neighborhood, to be joined by the mosque later that year or in 2014. The church and the Tri-Faith Center will be completed by 2014 or 2015.
