Description
In the current situation of polarization in the Middle East, it is easy to lose sight of the fact that a long tradition of dialogue and openness toward the "Other" exists in many strands of Jewish thought. Jews, often a minority in a given society, have had to envision the self in relation to surrounding societies. The Other therefore isn't strictly an enemy, but becomes a mirror. Esther Benbassa and Jean-Christophe Attias show that this alterity is a useful and morally compelling notion with which to structure Judaismís encounters with deity, femininity, the Christian West, and the Muslim East.
