Turkey is a beautiful country that lives up to its description of being the gateway to Europe on one hand and to Asia on the other. The trip not only reconnected us with the past (which we only saw in textbooks before) but also introduced us to the Turkey of today and its people. We were touched by the warmth, hospitality and generosity of the people. In a way, the trip was also an exercise in interreligious understanding as we engaged in conversations, and observed the intersections of the Abrahamic traditions.
Dr.Vivienne Angeles Professor of Religion Lasofle University
I’ll begin by saying thank you, although it seems like an inadequate way to express my gratitude for this extraordinary experience. What made this trip so special was not only the opportunity to visit many beautiful historic and religious sites in Turkey, but to do so in the company of an interfaith group all concerned with the same issues of understanding and education, Then add the home visits and conversations with many Turkish people involved in education, health care, business and you have a rich experience of many layers and dimensions. The experience helped dispel some of my assumptions and prejudices about Islam and Muslim people who are portrayed negatively in the media. I felt a strong sense of hope from meeting many Muslim people as concerned with interfaith dialog and understanding as we are. l feel very fortunate to have been the recipient of your group’s extraordinary hospitality

“We were introduced to the country of Turkey, we had the opportunity to meet people, we had the opportunity to visit the most incredible places on earth and we had the opportunity to get to know each other.
