Tour religions all in one

2017-09-05 06:00

The Cape Town Interfaith Initiative and the Cape SA Jewish Board in Rondebosch invite people from different religions to join their Heritage Day tour that will expose participants to three different religions. It will start from Rondebosch Library on Monday 25 September.

Liza-Jane Saban of the board says the tour promotes interfaith understanding, dialogue and learning, and is a fundraising event for the Cape Town Interfaith Initiative. She says participants will be provided with the opportunity to visit places of different faiths and encounter shrines such as the Constantia Kramat the St Michael’s Catholic Church, the Buddhist Centre Eco Village in Observatory and the Ananda Kutir Ashram in Rondebosch East, which teaches integral yoga.

“Few people have ever entered a house of worship belonging to a faith different from their own. If religious and cultural heritage interests you, this tour should not be missed,” Saban says.

According to Saban, participants will also be treated to a vegetarian lunch at Ahmadiyya Mosque in Rondebosch East.

“In a world witnessing an upsurge of racist incitement, religious intolerance and xenophobia, we need to work to promote interreligious and intercultural harmony,” says Gwynne Robins, deputy director of the board.

V The tour costs R150 per person, including lunch. For more information contact 021 462 2277 or info@­capeinterfaith.org.za.
