Welcome to a Community of Interfaith Understanding!


BEYOND TOLERANCE, WE VALUE HOSPITALITY, UNDERSTANDING, RESPECT, AND ACCEPTANCE.

As interfaith engagement approaches its third decade in West Michigan, we are excited to welcome new audiences and neighbors into the work of interfaith understanding and social engagement. The next chapter in the story of West Michigan's interfaith movement has yet to be written. Much has been accomplished, and much remains to be done. 

How might you join the story?

Kaufman events bring together diverse voices and faith traditions to find a common ground while still honoring individual experiences. Whether working with others in the community to host civilized discussions about polarizing issues or organizing celebrations that welcome all and encourage learning through differences, the institute carries out its mission through these community collaborations. To find out more, check out our "Get Involved" tab at the top of the page.
