Rabbi Jonathan Blass

22 Tevet 5763
Question
I was wondering what is the Jewish policy reffering to other religions and traditions? I have noticed that even some Jewish traditions are not the same, how do you treat one another?
Answer
The Torah is “intolerant” of idol worship and of any belief that has incorporated elements of idolatrous thought. One of the seven Noachide laws incumbent on all humanity prohibits idolatry. That said, the various forms of worship- from the most idolatrous to those that are closer to Judaism- are seen as steps in mankind’s development toward a purer understanding and worship of the G-d of Israel.
