            1. Is there a special reason why Christians should be in dialogue with Jews?

                Yes, definitely. Although our Christian religious traditions and sensibilities are quite
            distinctive, they are intertwined with and rooted in those of Judaism. Jesus was Jewish, and we
            are "grafted in," as St. Paul says (Romans 11:17). Through Jesus, God bound Christians
            together with Jews inextricably. We honor that special relationship only if we understand,
            respect, and in all things seek to love one another. Discussing how we will do this in deed as
            well as word could hardly be more important.
