Teaching Awareness

Letter to the Editors

As a Christian who leads four lectionary study groups, I attempt to bring Rabbi Seth Goren’s wisdom on “Recognizing ‘Christian Privilege’” (July 2013) to my students by using Jewish websites and Jewish translations of the Hebrew scriptures in our weekly discussions. This slowly but surely leads us to a deeper awareness of the gifts we inherited from our ancestors in faith. Hopefully, this awareness takes hold in the minds and hearts of all who come to the scriptures seeking God.
