About Us

CVIA_group

Welcome!

The purpose of the Conejo Valley Interfaith Association is to create a “sacred space” for clergy and interfaith representatives to dialogue and commune together by seeking out and celebrating our commonalities, while accepting and respecting our differences in belief and practice, in order to live together in greater understanding, peace and harmony.


Our motto is the Golden Rule which is common to most religious traditions:
“One should treat others as one would like others to treat them.”


All faiths are welcome.


Shalom, Salaam, Shanti, Peace & Blessings,
Giff          &         Yahya
