Story: Alevi – Welcome to this house

The Alevi are a religious, sub-ethnic and cultural community in Turkey. Alevi are related to Shi’a Islam and Bektasi Sufism. Compared to other groups within Islam, Alevi have a liberal view on life & religion. The Alevi come together in the Cemevi. The Cemevi is not only a place of prayer & religious ceremonies but also of brotherhood where food is handed out and community work is done.
