This event was cosponsored by The Library and the Milstein Center for Interreligious Dialogue of The Jewish Theological Seminary.

A Dialogue of Life is a book about interreligious dialogue between Jews and Christians, but it is so much more. It is a book to be savored, like poetry. A book to be pondered, like philosophy. A book that guides us to the most difficult of all human endeavors: listening, truly listening to one another.” —Rabbi Burton L. Visotzky, Ph.D. Appleman Professor of Midrash and Interreligious Studies, Director, Milstein Center for Interreligious Dialogue, JTS
