Jews often consider Hinduism to be Avoda Zara, idolatry, due to its worship of images and multiple gods. By appealing to the history of Judaism's view of Christianity, this book seeks to define what Avoda Zara is and how one might recognize the same God in different religions, despite legal definitions.

Alon Goshen-Gottstein is a noted scholar of rabbinic literature and former lecturer at Tel Aviv University, Israel. He is founder and director of the Elijah Interfaith Institute, a global organization bringing together high level religious leadership and scholars in ongoing collaboration surrounding interfaith theory and reflection. This present work grows out of these two interests and out of his own personal spiritual journey in dialogue with Hinduism.
