Center

for Interfaith Affairs 

The Center for Interfaith affairs provides a common ground of dialogue for every faith and non-faith tradition to discuss, explore and understand each other, and offer suggestions for the common problems of humanity. Discussion series, panels, visits, trips, conferences, dinners, book clubs and active community services are continuously organized by the Center for Interfaith Affairs. We believe knowing is the first step to harmony and love.
