A Jewish Guide to Interreligious Relations

By A. James Rudin

American Jewish Committee (AJC), March 1996

No one should go into interreligious dialogue without some knowledge of where the other participants are coming from. Accordingly, the purpose of this publication is to familiarize the reader with the basic history, theology and social views of potential dialogue partners, the ways they may react to core Jewish issues, and what they may search for in such a dialogue. This is accomplished by exploring the major issues and themes in Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism, and raising topics that may be crucial to interreligious dialogue in America, such as feminism and the religious right. Concluding the document are the author's tips for organizing a successful interreligious dialogue.

Topic: Jewish-Christian Relations, Islam, Buddhism, Christianity, Jewish-Muslim Relations, Discourse and Dialogue, Religion, Interfaith Relations
