Interfaith Academy is an ongoing event where we aim to learn, understand and discuss various topics that have common facets in our respective faith traditions. We organize these events in a different place of worship; where a speaker from the Muslim community and one from the hosting community share their traditions’ approaches on a predetermined topic with the audience. Some of the topics discussed so far:

  • Living together and coexistence
  • Difficult texts in Abrahamic traditions
  • Saving the environment
  • Mysticism
