Indiana Interchurch Center
The Indiana Interchurch Center is a multi-tenant nonprofit center that is intended to be “a living demonstration to the world that it is possible . . . to have unity without sacrificing freedom.”
It was created by several Christian churches and ecumenical organizations, and opened in July of 1967. Today, diversity and collaboration continue to be the core of the Center’s mission. The building is now home two dozen organizations representing several major faith traditions and various educational, environmental, and social service/action groups.
The 60,000 square foot building is located near Christian Theological Seminary, Butler University, and the Indianapolis Art Museum at the corner of Michigan Road and West 42nd Streets. The not-for-profit groups headquartered at IIC use the space for administrative offices and conferences. Six meeting rooms are available for tenants.
The Indiana Interchurch Center is a welcoming space for all sorts of organizations. More than just a building, IIC is a dynamic community of Central Indiana organizations devoted to transforming the city and changing the world.

LOCATION CHANGE- due to a scheduling conflict, this month’s Shabbat for all will be at the Indiana Interchurch Center in the Krannert Room. Indygo bus route 34.
Join Jewish Voice for Peace – Indiana, the Muslim Youth Collective – Indianapolis and AFSC Indiana for our monthly Shabbat dinner. We will have a Shabbat service led by community members, SING, share food with each other and engage in conversations about social justice and community building.
This month we will have a group conversation about many of the myths and facts we hear in conversations about Israel and Palestine. Israeli “hasbara”, or propaganda often comes up when we engage in discussions about Zionism and Palestine. We will discuss some of the more common talking points and work together to analyze their legitimacy.
This Shabbat is a monthly non-Zionist space for people of all faiths to come together to celebrate the Shabbat traditions. Kids of all ages are welcome! LGBTQIA+ open and affirming.
Bring a friend, bring a dish to share. Indygo bus route 34.

Hummus & Happiness is an event that encourages the audience to consider how film and food can create spaces for the exploration of complex issues and diverse viewpoints.
Guests are invited to a hummus-tasting competition, where they can sample (and then vote on!) hummus recipes from around the world, prepared by local hummus-makers, who will share their narrative and the story of their recipe. The winner will be announced after the film!
Life and Hummus is a brief documentary that considers the origins of hummus and the importance it plays in the lives of people all over the world, especially those who live in the Middle East. While the young American Jewish filmmaker traverses Israel and West Bank, Palestine in search of the best hummus, viewers gain a deeper appreciation for the food’s unique history and ability to bring people together. A short panel discussion with audience Q&A will follow the screening.

From growing feed to rearing animals, the meat industry is the largest source of water pollution in the United States. Much of the corn and soy grown at an industrial scale to feed livestock depletes our soil, contributes to the destruction of prairie landscapes, and pollutes waterways with excess fertilizer.
By moving just a handful of powerful companies to simply act in line with their stated commitments, we can change how food is produced and clean up Indiana’s water.
Join other concerned residents and local organizations Thursday night for a fun event to learn more about the campaign, help us strategize to win, and take action! We look forward to seeing you!
RSVP to let us know you can make it, and bring a friend. Kids are welcome!
To learn more about how you can get involved before the meeting, please contact:
