Abstract

The diversity of society can be seen from the culture with diverse religious backgrounds. This study aims to show a portrait of community diversity which is reflected in the attitude of tolerance for religious diversity and can be managed properly through a harmonious portrait of diversity. The method used is qualitative with a phenomenological approach. This type of research places the researcher as the main tile and instrument. Data was collected by observation, interviews and documentation studies. Data analysis uses data reduction, data display and conclusion drawing, strengthened by triangulation analysis. The results of the study show that differences in beliefs and/or religions are integrated with Sundanese culture as a binder of togetherness among the people. Multicultural values include: living in differences, mutual trust and understanding, mutual respect, open thinking, appreciation and interdependence, non-violent conflict resolution. Pluralism is God's law, so religion or belief in God should not be forced on anyone. This is reinforced by data on the index of religious harmony in three dimensions, namely perceptions of tolerance between religious believers (64.14% with an interval of 3.72); the attitude of equality between religious communities (65.71% with an interval of 3.80); and inter-religious cooperation (73.60% with an interval of 4.14).
