Is Pluralism a Jewish Value?

By Sharon Cohen-Anisfeld

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), March 2006

The author asks whether pluralism is inherently a Jewish value. She believes that at the heart of a commitment to pluralism is the fact of human uncertainty-- that we are not ever sure what our true purpose is. God's oneness is reflected in the diversity of creation and it is our job to honor both the unity and the diversity.
