چکیده

موضوع ارتباط بین ادیان، غالباً مهم و مطلوب تلقی می‌شود. هر جامعه‌ای که از گروه‌های مذهبی مختلف تشکیل شده است، باید قواعدی برای همکاری وضع کند که مانع از تفرقه مذهبی گردد. اما در این نوع ارتباط بین ادیان، مشکلاتی نیز وجود دارد؛ اگر کسی به حقیقت یک موضع خاص ایمان داشته باشد، بررسی جدی اینکه آیا آن موضع واقعاً درست است یا نه، مشکل است. با این حال ایدئولوژی لیبرالیسم مبتنی بر جریان آزاد ایده‌ها و آمادگی پیوستة فرد برای بررسی موضع دینی‌‌اش می‌باشد.
ارتباط بین ادیانی را می‌توان نه به معنای چالش‌ با عقاید دیگران، بلکه صرفاً به عنوان تبادل ایده‌ها و نظر‌ها تلقی کرد. مقالة حاضر در صدد پرداختن به این مسئلة نظری و ربط دادن آن به داده‌های عملی برگرفته‌ از کار بنیاد ابن میمون است که در لندن جهت گسترش ارتباط بین مسلمانان و یهودیان فعالیت می‌کند.

چکیده [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.
