“To Do the Will of Our Father in Heaven: Toward a Partnership between Jews and Christians,” rabbinic statement signed by 30+ Orthodox rabbis, 2015
“Both Jews and Christians have a common covenantal mission to perfect the world under the sovereignty of the Almighty,” the statement declares. “Our partnership in no way minimizes the ongoing differences between the two communities and the two religions.”
World Jewish Congress statement on Muslim-Jewish Interfaith Dialogue, 2019
Dialogue with representatives of moderate Islam is one of the most important and challenging issues at this time. The increasing gap of understanding between so-called 'Western liberal democracies' and the Islamic word is a recipe for potential civil strife and possible violence. Discussion and debate between brethren who share a common root will lead to the realization that shared ideals, aspirations and values far outweigh any differences that may exist. Extremists represent only a small part of Islam. The vast majority of Muslims are peace-loving people who do not support or wish to engage in terrorist activities. Whilst combating the threats posed by 'Radical Islam' it is important to embrace the proponents of 'Moderate Islam' and to engage with them in open and constructive dialogue. Dialogue should not only be limited to a theological debate, but also to exchanges of views on sociological, cultural, diplomatic and political issues.
