Label: Purpose & Activities

Our purpose is to provide the community with a space of encounter, reflection and celebration of diversity.

Escuela de Amor is promoting knowledge and understanding among Muslim, Christian and Jews through weekly dialogues. We use texts and readings of the three traditions and deepening the common values. We are also often invited to visit schools to speak about religious identity and interfaith cooperation. Through panels and workshops students at the primary, secondary and university level learn about our different identities as well as the huge possibilities that mutual respect and interfaith cooperation can bring; In 2010, we had Buddhist and Indigenous friends join our panel. This Cooperation Circle was the initiator of Bridge Builders program. This program is funded by an award given by the US Embassy in Buenos Aires for a youth project for URI, Fundacio´n Judaica and Fundacio´n de la Amistad Argentina Turca. One of our CC leaders, Rabbi Arieh Sztokman, was also asked to guide an interfaith visit to Holy Land.
