Join Tri-Faith Executive Director Wendy Goldberg for this Open Conversation with women from The American Muslim Insitute!
The American Muslim Institute’s (AMI) mission is to promote a better understanding of Islam in the Western world. AMI’s educational, religious, and social programs are grounded in faith and the core values of Islam: acceptance, compassion, equality, justice, and peace. Founded in Omaha in 2006, AMI is a local, non-denominational, autonomous nonprofit organization. The mosque and community center on the Tri-Faith Commons serves as a worship space and Islamic institute for Omaha’s growing Muslim population. Construction began in 2015 and the building opened in May of 2017.

The Tri-Faith Initiative is a unique and ambitious project in the field of interfaith relations in design, scale, and scope. It brings together into permanent residency a synagogue, church, mosque, and interfaith center on one 38-acre campus in the middle of America’s heartland. By its very model it challenges people of faith and goodwill to be conscious and proactive about the assets of faith in civil life in a religiously pluralistic society. The Tri-Faith Initiative aims to create a more inclusive culture in which religious pluralism is socially normative. The Tri-Faith Initiative is made up of three Abrahamic faith groups who have chosen to be in relationship together as neighbors on one campus, committed to practicing respect, acceptance and trust. Our three members are of the Jewish, Christian, and Islamic faiths: Temple Israel, Countryside Community Church (UCC), and The American Muslim Institute.
