The House of One

 

Berlin is soon to become home to something truly unique.Jews, Christians, and Muslims are planning to build a house of worship here. One that brings a synagogue, a church, and a mosque together under one roof. The three separate sections will be linked by a communal room in the center of the building. This "House of One“ will serve as a meeting place, where worshipers and non-religious people can come together and learn more about the religions and each other.

Since 2014 the House of One is engaged in a large scale crowdfunding campaign and has collected donations from more that 40 countries. By donating ten euro, every donor contributes a brick that together will eventually build the House of One. This conference will be celebrated during "La Semaine de Rencontre Islamo-Chrétienne" and with the collaboration of "Convictions en Dialogue", "El Kalima","European Jewish Community Centre","House of One" and Chapel for Europe Fredrik Barkenhammar  who is responsible for the fundraising at the House of One, will be presenting us this project. 

Fredrik Barkenhammar is a protestant Swede and moved to the predominantly turkish community of Kreuzberg in Berlin after attending a jewish high-school in the United States. Barkenhammar came to the House of One from the German Red Cross in 2014.

Conference The House of One will be held at the Chapel for Europe (rue Van Maerlantstraat 22, 1040 Brussels) on 22 November at 7 pm.
