Judaism and Christianity
What can we learn about our common roots and from one another today?
Listen below to the two podcasts of our forums on May 31 and June 7 led by Rabbi Susan Leider of Congregation Kol Shofar and Br. Richard Edward Helmer of Church of Our Saviour.
Listen here to the first forum, where Rabbi Leider introduces the origins of the Rabbinical tradition and the scriptural interpretive technique of Midrash. In conversation with the congregation, we also explore mysticism in contemporary Judaism and Christianity. (Follow the Midrash example here.)
In the second forum, we discuss the liturgical traditions of the table in Rabbinical Judaism and Christianity, and their deep resonances and shared roots.
