New inter-religious project

“Do you know who I am?” is a new inter-religious project due to begin work in September. Its main objective is to challenge and overcome prejudice and to help all religions and cultures live side by side in peace. The organizers are the Central Council of Jews in Germany, the Council of Christian Churches in Germany (ACK), the Central Council of Moslems in Germany and the Turkish-Islamic Union (DITIB). There will be discussions and activities designed to arouse interest in other religions and promote mutual understanding. The project calls upon people to let their curiosity about others unfold, to conquer prejudice and to strengthen our common sense of community. It addresses young and old among the Jewish, Christian and Moslem population and will reach out to nurseries, youth groups, schools and clubs. More details about this project are available in German on the web at www.weisst-du-wer-ich-bin.de.
