Walking in Other’s Shoes: Faith in Omaha

Tri-Faith Initiative fosters empathy, invites understanding, and advances common action between people of diverse faiths through the shared efforts of intentionally co-located congregations of the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faiths and an interfaith center on one campus. 

At Maha’s Community Village, Tri-Faith will ask participants to “walk in the other’s shoes” through hands on exhibits that allow participants to touch, feel and see close up religious artifacts such as Muslim prayer rugs, Prayer beads, Jewish religious scrolls, and other prayer spaces (including a meditation space) that they would not otherwise come in contact with.
