ABSTRACT
The article presents the perspectives of the authors concerning the moral and religious grounding of tolerance. They assert that tolerance is the disposition to endure people's beliefs and practices that others find either false or immoral. They argue that tolerance only makes sense against a backdrop of religious or moral religion and requires a thick conception of the self and a creation of metaphysical substance. It is noted that tolerance rooted from the insight of Talmudic Judaism that minority and majority opinions can both be the word of the living God.
