> Hold on here -- Your comment "usual Christian misundering" is one big generalization.

Yes, you're right. It was wrong of me to generalize. However, Christianity being the prevailing culture of this country, I believe that, generally (there go the generalizations again!), Jews learn more about Christianity than vice versa. I still remember being told that Jews should go sit in the back of the classroom (when I was in 1st grade) so that the teacher could talk about the Christmas story. I stayed in my seat- I was curious (anyway, you couldn't help but hear the story in the back of the room!). I think most Jews have a basic idea about what Christians believe, but I regularly encounter misconceptions on the part of Christians about what Jews believe. Just my experience.

> PS other than that you do a great job and your posts are very enlightening and concise.

I'm no expert, as I said, but thanks. Like I said, constructive and supportive dialogue and true, open-minded curiosity is always welcome.
