The Abrahamic House A 501(c)(3) organization is the brainchild of Mohammed Al Samawi, author of The Fox Hunt, his autobiography. Mohammed’s personal journey, from war-torn Yemen to the United States, led him from harboring a deep suspicion of other faiths to becoming a world-renowned peace advocate. A critical powerful encounter with a teacher challenged him to learn about the Bible and Judaism, rerouting him from a path of likely violence toward global interfaith activism. Mohammed’s journey ultimately saved his life, when, in 2015, four American strangers–Jewish, Christian, and Muslim–helped rescue him from militant groups in Yemen.
The work that Mohammed began in Yemen is far from finished. Mohammed remains committed to the exchange and education of core values that define our religious traditions and hopes to advance this work through the Abrahamic House. The board of the Abrahamic House is comprised of diverse leaders in the faith, peace, justice, and entrepreneurship fields. Abrahamic House fellows hail from Muslim, Jewish, Christian and Baha’i faiths, with a diversity of cultural and religious practices.
