Lesson 8:

Our religions espouse many values to which we relate on a moral and ethical level as human beings. In studying charity in the earlier session (lesson #3), it is easy to see common threads in our obligations to help the poor. Yet, in our sacred texts, there are also verses and themes that have raised ethical challenges to our scholars over the ages and may well do so for us today. We focus on some of the texts dealing with how we regard the "other", those who differ from our beliefs. In studying and interpreting these difficult texts from each of our traditions, we can come to a deeper appreciation of the challenges we must face as Muslims and as Jews.
