Lesson 6: Unity and Diversity within the Community

Both Judaism and Islam embrace a powerful concept of a worldwide community. This idea is expressed in Islam as the umma (or community) and in Judaism as k'lal yisrael (all of the Jewish people). At the same time, however, there is also a great deal of diversity within this unified religious body. In this session, we will explore both the unifying aspects of our communities, as well as the vast cultural differences in which we find ourselves and express our religious identities. This model of unity among diversity can serve as a model for us as Muslims and Jews.
