2019 World Interfaith Harmony Week Prize Winners Announced

March 20, 2019

The World Interfaith Harmony Week initiative has announced the 2019 winners of H.M. King Abdullah II World Interfaith Harmony Week Prize! The judges HRH Princess Areej Ghazi, HB Patriarch Theophilus III, HE Sheikh Dr. Ali Gomaa, HE Bishop Munib Yunan, Sheikh Usama al-Sayyid Al-Azhari, Father Nabil Haddad, and Dr. Minwer Al-Mheid reviewed 170 applications for the prize from over 1,454 events held around the world.
Winners were selected for the excellence of efforts, collaboration and impact of events; as well as their celebration of  World Interfaith Harmony Week rather than good interfaith work in general. The awards ceremony will be hosted in Jordan during the last week of April. You can read more about the winners on the official announcement from World Interfaith Harmony Week!
