عنوان مقاله [English]
The topic of interreligious communication is frequently defended as significant if different ethnic and religious groups are to coexist. Any society that consists of different religious groups has to establish some rules of cooperation that cuts across the religious divide.
However, there are problems in such interreligious communication; if one is convinced of the truth of a particular position; it is difficult to consider seriously whether it is really true. Yet the ideology of liberalism is based on the free flow of ideas and the constant readiness of the individual to consider his religious standpoint.
Interreligious communication may be seen not as challenging others’ beliefs but merely as exchanging ideas and views. The paper will deal with this theoretical issue and link it with the practical data that has arisen from the work of the Maimonides Foundation, an organization in London that works to foster communication between Muslims and Jews.
