My own principal concern in considering the question of the 'other' in the Jewish tradition relates to the conception of Mankind created in the 'image of G-d'. As among others Rabbi Irving Greenberg teaches this sense of the 'dignity of the other 'means that they are our ' equals'. How this translates in our understanding of our own special role in the world is major question that yields no easy answer.
