This chapter describes the author's experiences trying to bring the Jewish-Christian dialogue into the lives of believers of both faiths. Topics covered include teaching the New Testament in synagogue classes, searching for Jewish patterns of thought in the Gospels, interfaith thanksgiving services, teaching church classes, and guest sermons in churches. It is argued that the religious dialogue must move beyond the elite leadership of the faiths and become better known by the laity. Believers must be encouraged to leave fear and parochialism behind as they open themselves and their beliefs to influence by the other.

Keywords:   Judaism, Christianity, Jews, interfaith dialogue, Jewish-Christian dialogue
