Berlin Proposes House Of Worship For Muslims, Christians & Jews

Imagine a building where three major religious groups meet at the same location. Well Berlin is looking for donations to construct the House Of One.

This building will house a synagogue, mosque and church.

A competition to design such a place was won by Wilfried Kuen’s team.

Rabbi Tovia Ben Chorin was quoted by the BBC as saying:

From my Jewish point of view the city where Jewish suffering was planned is now the city where a centre is being built by the three monotheistic religions which shaped European culture.

The Imam, Kadir Sanci said this was a sign that Muslims were peace-loving people and the building would give opportunity for different customs to learn from each other.

Kuen says that the three spaces will be the same size but will have different shapes.

We wonder if this will work. Maybe it is a place where the moderates can meet but the radicals will not like this idea at all.

Do you think something like that could work in Zimbabwe?
