Milstein Center for Interreligious Dialogue, Jewish Theological Seminary.
Interfaith harmony is essential for the well-being of the world. Religions must work together to oppose enticements to violence that could ultimately lead to genocide. Within national borders, religions must work together to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, clothe the naked — the very acts of righteousness God calls us to. And individuals must work, even struggle, to “love your neighbor as yourself.”
This endeavor is of the utmost importance — it is no less than God’s command.
