Speaking From, Not For, Judaism: Reconstructionism and Interreligious Dialogue

By Lewis J. Eron

Reconstructionist Rabbinical Association (RRA), Fall 2002

The author describes interreligious dialogue as a process in which people of diverse religious and spiritual backgrounds and commitments address fundamental issues of meaning, identity and faith. The participants hope to strengthen their understanding of themselves, their partners and their deep faith commitments to their religious, ethnic and cultural heritages through the sharing of ideas, hopes, dreams and practices. According to the author, the Reconstructionist Jews' commitment to Judaism as the living and unfolding religious-based culture of the Jewish people brings Jews to dialogue with members of other faiths, allowing all to share knowledge and wisdom.
