Remember that time we interviewed a reverend and a rabbi?

In 2010, the Rev. George Mason, senior pastor of Wilshire Baptist Church, and Rabbi David Stern, senior rabbi at Temple Emanu-El, told us how they became such good friends despite their theological differences.

(Christians and Jews are divided by a common person. Spoiler alert: It’s Jesus.)

Both men have led their congregations through differing religious holidays this month, and their example of interfaith dialogue is an example of the values we celebrate at Christmas and Hanukkah.

Love. Charity. Acceptance.
