Three Faiths Forum


Three Faiths Forum

The Three Faiths Forum was established as a forum for religious dialogue between Jews, Christians and Muslims. Founded in 1997, it aims to encourage friendship, goodwill and understanding amongst people of the three Abrahamic Faiths.

Not shying away from the manifest differences between the faith traditions and their many denominations, the Three Faiths Forum aims to prove through practical projects that diversity of beliefs does not rule out common action.

One area of the Forum's practical interfaith work is the establishing of local groups where people of the Muslim, Christian and Jewish faiths can meet and share their common interests and experiences. Besides a number of local groups, there are a group of lawyers and a medical working group.

The '3ff' youth division, established in 2006 with the aid of a government grant, extends the work of the forum into schools, youth groups and universities. Text-based educational work leads to action together: reading thematic passages from the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament and the Qur'an together is followed by social action, art projects or environmental activities.
