Abraham build is a unique opportunity that focuses on “promoting Interfaith dialogue” by combining local Muslim, Jewish and Christian volunteers on the same build site. This build strives to bring these faith communities together to foster dialogue and a deeper understanding of their varying faiths through the joint construction of a Habitat home.
It has been three years since the first Abraham home build, and we are excited to partner on this shared event again.
Sign-up information will be sent out soon, so please stay tuned!
