A Jewish Theology of Interfaith Relations

By Elliot N. Dorff

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), December 2005

Summarizing chapter three of his book, To Do the Right and the Good, Dorff explains his three arguments for creating fruitful relations with non-Jews seeking new grounding for mutual respect and cooperation - historical, philosophical and religious. Dorff calls for a new Jewish Theology of interfaith relations applying strains of biblical and rabbinic sources to the new realities of the modern world.
