Rabbi Dr. Rene Gautman (France) – Permanent representative for the European Rabbies Comlex
2008-05-13
Rabbi Dr. Rene Gautman (France) – Permanent representative for the European Rabbies Comlex gave a speech in the opening session... Speeches available in this website at this link: http://www.qatar-conferences.org/dialogue2008/english/speeches.php Representing the Jewish faith, Rabbie Rene Gautman of France said the highest position in the love of people must be taken by the love of man and it must extend to all human beings, despite all differences in opinion. “There is no doubt that repairing of the world in its many ramifications is a precondition and vital need for the realisation of our spiritual vocation. Each country that respects itself doesn’t and can’t be satisfied with its narrow boundaries and limited domains. Rather each nation must bring all that is good and beautiful, that is helpful and glorious to its national, cultural and spiritual treasure. And each must contribute to its own blessings to the heritage of humanity as a whole,” he said. The Peninsula - Qatar Coverage/ Rabbi Rene Gautman, Jewish scholar from France and Professor Ahmed Mohamed Al Tayyib, Muslim scholar from Egypt, also addressed the opening session. "Our faiths are different. Judaism is not Christianity, Christianity is not Islam, the Abrahamic monotheisms are different from eastern mysticism on the one hand, and from scientific humanism on the other. Yet when we bring our respective heritages of wisdom to public domain, we have no need to wish to convert others. Instead we are tacitly saying, if this speaks to you, then please take it as our gift. Indeed it is yours already for wisdom belongs to us all," said Gautman.
