Mission & Vision
A Message From Our Founders
Our Mission & Vision
Our mission is to promote interfaith dialogue to create deep and meaningful relationships among people from Christian, Jewish and Muslim faiths. We believe that such relationships will lead to greater understanding, cooperation, and caring among these faith communities and will contribute to healing the world.
Our vision is that our interfaith dialogue programs will be offered, both remotely and in person, by faith communities across the United States.
Our approach is to create easily implementable programs which employ interfaith dialogue among members of different faith communities (Christians, Jews and/or Muslims) to develop greater understanding and deep, sustained, and meaningful relationships among the participants.
Sponsoring faith organizations can use our programs to promote such interfaith dialogue and relationship building between their members, and neighboring faith communities of one or both of the other two faith traditions. Interested community members not affiliated with the sponsoring faith communities may also be invited to participate.

By Mary Grace Bertulfo
Unpack your hidden tools, America.
Dust off your generosity of spirit,
your open-handed friendship,
your sense of possibility.
Reach beyond the din of hatred
to the still, peaceful place inside.
Remember the kindness
and frailty of your neighbors.
The angels of our better nature
Build, they say, build.
Build bridges between neighbors.
Embrace openly on the streets
the fortitude of love.
Our diversity makes us wiser.
Our diversity broadens our beauty.
Our diversity makes us richer.
So build, America, bridges.
300 million bridges built to unite neighbors
are strong than
one wall built to separate us.
Today, right now,
unpack your tools of peace.
Extend your bridges to your neighbors
so that we may walk together
across this land
