The panel aims to explore the Jewish involvement in the interfaith and intercultural dialogue from historical, sociological, and theological perspective. It is organised by the Free Ebrei (Online Journal of Contemporary Jewish Identity and Cultural Association) and will present the results of the research published in the volume Jews in Dialogue: Jewish Responses to the Challenges of Multicultural Contemporaneity (part of the Brill subseries “Studies in Jewish History and Culture”). It aims to encourage conversation among scholars of different backgrounds and exchange of research results in the field of intercultural and interreligious dialogue. Thus, proposals dealing with the interreligious and intercultural relations in the State of Israel, Jewish-Christian relations in post-Holocaust Europe and America, as well as the topics of Jewish attitudes towards other cultures and religions in the most recent period, are particularly welcomed, especially case-studies.
