Video recording of the lecture My God, Your God, No God; 14 June 2018; Jewish Museum Berlin 2018

How do Judaism and Islam strike a balance between individual freedom of belief and a specific religion’s absolute claim on the truth? How do they respond if their adherents leave the religious community? How are people of other faiths viewed and treated?

A discussion with Leora Batnitzky and Anver Emon.

The event will be moderated by Léontine Meijer-van Mensch, Program Director of the Jewish Museum Berlin.
