CO MIPAZ is the first formal Interfaith Committee in Argentina, with 12 years of work in Cordoba province.
We are interested in shearing the wisdom of our traditions and showing that coexistence in a diverse field is a possible challenge.
We work in an environment of true friendship and cooperation, consolidating a group of men and women, religious and secular, of various ages, with different religions.

We gather periodically to organize and take into action religious, social, educational and cultural projects, such as guided visits, congresses, meetings, mediation processes, press articles and books, participation in public events or councils, interfaith prayers for peace, etc.
We are a non profit, non partisan, independent organization.
We have the support of our religious communities, the different levels of the government, universities, social organizations, media, global interfaith organizations, and several men and women that fell identified with our mission and make our projects have a higher impact in society through their work.

We hope that this initiative
will inspire you to join us
in the construction of better reality.

Our History

In 1997 Mounif El Sukaría, the Muslim Imam, and Gabriel Frydman, the Jewish rabbi, met at a public event and started a friendly relation.

In the context of the Iraq – Iran war and the permanent conflicts in Middle East, these leaders decided to create an interfaith organization that worked for peace in the city of Cordoba and everywhere.

For it they called the Evangelical Pastor Fermín Salcedo and they were contacted with the Archbishopric of Cordoba, that appointed the Auxiliary Bishop Roberto Rodriguez to be the Catholic member of this project.

These four representatives of the different monotheist religious confessions created the Interfaith Committee for Peace, signing the statute in June 18, 1998.

In 2002, the Imam Sukaría passed away and in his place assumed Alí Badrán who had been president of the Muslim Arabian Society.  In that epoch Monseigneur Rodriguez was transferred to another diocese, so he was replaced in the Committee by Presbyter Juan José Ribone.  Further on Pastor Salcedo became ill and Pastor Daniel Anonne took his place.  Finally Rabbi Frydman was transferred to Puerto Rico and in representation of the Jewish community assumed Rabbi Marcelo Polakoff.
