AWARE'S April Schedule of Cultural Events


For a rewarding, spiritual & informative experience.
This is a 1½ tour of one of Kuwait’s most famous landmarks. Ladies are required to cover - long sleeves and long ankle length skirt, otherwise the mosque will provide a cloak. If you have your own scarf you’re welcome to bring it.
Cameras are allowed. Children are welcome.
This tour meets directly at the Grand Mosque

This tour does not require prior registration.


Three Jewish, Christian and Muslim groups attempt to overcome their differences by building a house together for a poor family in Mexico.
However, this gesture of good will proves to be rather challenging for this diverse crowd. Not only will they have to face each other for the first time, but these inexperienced builders must complete the house in an outrageously short amount of time… Amidst this fast paced and exhausting race against time to finish the house, many share with us their fears and hopes and their views of “the other side”. Among them are Dassie, a Jewish lady born and raised in Israel and Nadia, a Muslim lady born and raised in Lebanon, two ladies from opposite sides of the Middle Eastern conflict…
"We're going to show the world that we can build and not destroy..."
Can these groups achieve their mission of building a house together, "...
a house where all of us can live, this country, this world..." as the Rabbi hopes? And can they do it in time? This powerful story provides a fresh and hopeful approach to peace in a world divided by conflict and takes us on an exciting adventure beyond the boundaries of our differences to a place of Common Grounds.
