House of Life

We facilitate the free lending of land at Jewish burial sites and the construction of community-managed fruit tree nurseries, strengthening inter-religious and inter-ethnic solidarity, preserving cultural heritage, and driving sustainable development. Through caring for a shared space of meaning, the House of Life project continues a long history of interfaith collaboration between Muslim and Jewish community members.
