Abu Dhabi's Abrahamic Family House Opens its Doors | Citizen Support

The Abrahamic Family House, a new centre for learning, dialogue and faith practice located in the Saadiyat Cultural District in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE), was officially opened on Thursday by His Highness Lieutenant General Sheikh Saif bin Zayed al-Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, and Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak al-Nahyan, Minister of Tolerance and Coexistence.

The Abrahamic Family House will be a beacon of mutual understanding where people of all religious backgrounds will coexist harmoniously and peacefully. It consists of a mosque, a church, a synagogue and an educational centre located on Saadiyat Island in the cultural heart of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. Through its design, it captures the shared values between Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and serves as a powerful platform to inspire and foster understanding and acceptance among people of goodwill. The vision for the Abrahamic Family House originated after the signing of the Document on Human Fraternity by Pope Francis and Grand Imam Ahmed Al-Tayeb in February 2019, in the presence of more than 400 religious leaders.
