It does not matter how one perceives God - Jesus, God the Father, Jove, Shiva, Allah what ever. According to Jewish teaching (Torah) Adonai is the identity behind these masks. In addition anyone - Christian, Muslim, Hindu,... is entitled to a share of the Jewish world to come as long as they lead an ethical life. Non-Jews are even to worship at the temple and offer sacrifices. This means that you don't have to be Jewish to receive a share of the world to come - just be a good person.

Therefore Judaism does not say that it has the only truth or good people or that only it's followers will be saved. This is why the Torah needs no correction by either the New Testament or Quran which both claim that the only way to salvation is through them. Such an idea is chauvinism in the extreme and needs to be corected in itself. The Talmud doesn't even correct the Torah as there is no need to. As with any law and ethic it is how the law is applied that matters.
