Muslim-Jewish Dialogue in the United Kingdom: A Bittersweet Experience

By Luciana Berger

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), May 2005

While the author understands why people reject Muslim-Jewish dialogue, she explains the many reasons why British Jews must connect and continue to engage with the Muslim community. As minorities living side-by-side in the U.K., we both shared common enemies and challenges that we should combat together, including the rise of Islamophobia and antisemitism. She concludes with the belief that it is her moral responsibility as a Jew to engage in dialogue in order to truly "love thy neighbor.
