Why I’m Leaving the Dialogue

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/opinion/article/why_im_leaving_the_dialogue_20011026

I believe in dialogue. That is why I have participated in the Muslim-Jewish Dialogue of Los Angeles for close to two years. I entered the dialogue because I know that ignorance of each other's faiths, legal traditions, histories, cultural and psychological perceptions can lead to destructive stereotyping and mistrust. Through honest discussions, we Jews and our Muslim partners can understand each other better, which is the central purpose of the dialogue, namely fostering mutual respect while exploring and accepting our differences.
