“The lessons Deborah and I created for this book years ago are simple yet creative. They provide a taste of Jewish life. Even if no Jews live in our neighborhood, the responsibility to build a relationship of mutual respect remains vital today.
As Catholics celebrate the 50th anniversary of Nostra Aetate / Vatician II, we are grateful for the depth and breadth of a new respectful relationship with the Jewish people. The key to further growth is the education and formation of children and adults alike.”

“Thank you for the copy of your book and for bringing back pleasant memories of our work together at the Workshop on Christian-Jewish Relations. It has always been a valuable resource and I am a glad to hear that the book has been updated and made generally available in our neck of the woods.
May God bless you in your work, and through you, shed His blessings on many.”
~Wilton D. Gregory, Archbishop 
Catholic Archdiocese of Atlanta

“Deborah Levine’s Teaching Curious Christians about Judaism is an indispensable resource for those who desire to introduce Christians to living Judaism, as opposed to the stereotypes, misconceptions and fantasies that often populate Christian minds. I highly recommend it to anyone committed to furthering inter-religious understanding through education.”
