Lesson 5: Jerusalem

A comprehensive Muslim-Jewish dialogue would not be complete without at least touching on the Middle East. While there will be issues we agree and disagree on politically, it is important to put these differences in context and to understand the religious significance of the land, and specifically the city of Jerusalem. After all, Jerusalem is perhaps the only city in the world that is considered historically and spiritually significant to Jews, Christians, and Muslims alike. In looking at this historical and religious framework, we can gain greater respect for one another and the importance that this region plays in each of our traditions.
