“Trialogue” of the Religions
Every two years we hold what we call the “Trialogue of the Religions” in cooperation with Dr. Edith Franke, who is professor of Religious Studies at the Philipps University in Marburg. The forum looks at central aspects of life from the perspective of each religion. Some examples of topics we have discussed are raising children, death, women’s roles, life partnerships, and sexuality, just to name a few. Official representatives of the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faiths share their perspectives, followed by an open discussion with the audience led by Dr. Franke. With this program, we hope to promote inter-religious dialogue and mutual understanding.
