Why do Jews and Christians imagine different concepts when the new theologies speak of opening up the Trinity to Israel's covenant? Rabbi Brill will explore the question of how the two religions think differently about theology. He will seek to steer the discussion beyond attempting to create sameness or difference and will outline the changes on both sides from perceiving differences between the faiths to perceiving commonality. But then ask: how much are these new theologies still operating on Christian terms?
