This is a very enlightening read from the "Sikh review", a pdf article on some similarities between Judaism and Sikhism, which I think could bode well as a discussion point for interfaith dialogue: http://www.sikhreview.org/pdf/march1996/pdf-files/inter.pdf The article also discusses some differences in belief which makes it a very fair, respectful yet scholarly read - ie there is no inconsiderate attempt at immoderate syncretism or blending of religions which devalues the distinct beauty and independent perspectives on truth that are reflected in the world religions, whilst not denying that man is one in his search for meaning and that the spiritual reality towards which he strives is also one. In this respect I think that a "core" deposit of truths can be found nestled within the sacred teachings of every humane belief system which has ennobled humanity, yet we must also recognize the differences or else we might commit the error of blurring the rich and legitimate diversity of human approaches to worship. A few excerpts which interest me: I very much admire the sentiment expressed in the last passage. Sister Ishna ji innocently and with pure intent referenced an Ismaili Muslim article which spoke of Judaism in (to my eyes) a wholly deprecatory and deamining fashion with no attempt at a fair representation of this faith's teachings. I am heartened that the Sikh authors of this article have engaged with Jewish beliefs in a real spirit of compassion. Those who study Judaism with an open-mind, and in particular Jewish mysticism (known as Kabbalah and also Hasidic spirituality), will in my mind discover it as being one of the most fascinating religions on earth with much to teach all of us and contribute to civilisation.
