When a rabbi and a pastor sit down to discuss their common ground, it is worth hearing. Especially when it is a conversation that is so uniting.
Judaism and Christianity
Judaism and Christianity are two totally different religions. But even religions that are not the same can share some similarities. They both value faith, community, righteousness, justice, and morality.
And that is why it is so important to listen to what a rabbi and pastor have to say about each other and to each other. Because despite their differences and their different religions, they believe they share a common ground.
A Rabbi and a Pastor’s Conversation
These two religious leaders discuss the connection between Jews and the Civil Rights Movement. The Jewish people were involved because they have experienced challenges and hardship and look to help others in the same situation.
As the rabbi says, “underdogs take care of underdogs.” The pastor says, “We understand each other’s plight.”
The pastor also makes a point that both Jews and Christians rely on God to save them in troubling times.
Important Message of Helping Others
The underlying message is important: Help those who are struggling. Help those people, whether they are part of the same religion or not, who need “a coat,” or whatever support they need, as the rabbi makes mention of.
People do not have to be of the same religion to stand up for what is right.
And the rabbi and the pastor do a great job at showing that to the world.
