What Does Diaspora Mean for Jews and Muslims?
Dialogical lecture series Judaism and Islam in the Diaspora (with Video Recording)
The diasporic existence of Jews has been a lived reality since the very beginnings of Judaism. The history of Islam is a different matter: originally, permanent residence under non-Muslim rule was not envisaged. This event explores the different ways in which Jewish and Muslim scholars have thought about the minority situation and its consequences in various domains of life.
