This selection of essays through a group of foreign students addresses the subject of Charity in the course of the lenses of the 3 Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The participants search for universal paradigms within the methods the 3 faiths tackle the wishes of the negative and the needy of their respective societies, and ponder the interrelatedness of such practices one of the 3 religions. They ask how the 3 traditions take care of the distribution of wealth, within the reputation that now not all contributors of a given society have equivalent entry to it, and within the dating of charity to the inheritance platforms and relatives constructions. They exhibit systemic styles which are similar--norms, advantage, theological validations, exclusionary ideas, deepest accountability to society--issues that experience implications for intercultural and interfaith realizing. Conversely, the essays inquire how the 3 faiths vary of their figuring out of poverty, wealth, and justifications for charity.
