Open Doors Day

‘Open Doors Day of religious communities in Doboj ” is designed in the form of visits to religious sites, during which representatives of churches and religious communities meet young people in their religious buildings and give them its view of the importance of establishing permanent peace from a religious perspective in order to involve all social factors in the process of restoring trust among the citizens of Bosnia and Herzegovina, regardless of their ethnic or religious affiliation.

The first event “Open Doors Day of Religious Communities” was held in Doboj in 2009 through a project implemented by the Jewish Community in Doboj, and financed by the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Srpska. This event is recognized as very important for the development of permanent peace by donors, elementary and secondary schools in Doboj. Each year a new generation of students visiting the city’s religious buildings: the synagogue, two Orthodox churches, the Catholic Church and the town mosque and on this occasion become familiar with appearance of religious sites, as well as with the performance of services, customs and traditions of religious communities that live in our area. In 2015, the “Open Doors Day of religious communities in Doboj” was held on March 30 as part of the project “The Music Education Center” implemented by The Jewish Community in in Doboj, funded by The Royal Norwegian Embassy in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
