WORLD: What other misunderstandings do you most often encounter?

DN: Unfortunately, many Christians still think that Jews regard them with contempt. But that is not what Judaism teaches. Thus the great 12th-century Jewish theologian, Rabbi Moses Maimonides, stated that Jews should see divine providence in the fact that millions of gentiles have been brought to the worship of the Lord God of Israel because of the mission of Jesus to the world. While we have enough differences to keep us apart in separate communities, I believe that when the final redemption of the world is brought by God, faithful Christians will be present there together with faithful Jews. We should all pray that this day will come speedily, even in our own lifetime.
