Description (Part 1 - Rabbi David Louis):
"The Torah is God's Name" What did the sages mean?
The Talmudic Sages said the every word of the Five Books of Moses is a name of God. Or in other words, The Torah is one long name of God. What does this mean? We know that there are basically ten names of God, the highest of which is the ineffable Tetragrammaton YHVH. These ten names represent the Ten Divine Spheres--the Aspects of Divine reflection to us. This is the widely known "optical" analogy.
But when we say that all of the permutations of the 22 Hebrew letters which constitute the Hebrew Bible one great name of God, we are talking about a process which is higher than theology or philosophy. We are talking about the direct experience of God's thoughts in our everyday lives from one moment to the next.
God's thoughts do not have do go through processes to be manifest. We must plan, correct, decide, then gradually, patiently work to execute our ideas. Sometimes they don't actually happen. God's thoughts instantly happen.
The big question is then: It is possible for us to be instruments of God's thoughts? Can we see good ideas realized before our very eyes directly from thought to action?

Description (Part 2 - Galen Goldsmith):
"Christian Roots in Israelite Scripture"
The Bible is a library, an anthology of oral traditions and literary compositions spanning millenia, the product of genius and of generations. Behind it stands one God, the subject of it all. Its portrait of God has many faces, but all those people believed in the same God. At the turn of the Christian Era, many people in Judah and Galilee saw no resolution to their troubles except the coming of a Messiah, someone annointed by God. Those who hailed Jesus as that Messiah developed their lore about him hand in hand with Israel's scriptures. It was the same God, but in Christian thought Jesus portrayed the whole truth and nothing but the truth about that Deity. So we will trace the full flowering, the image and likeness, of the Lord God omnipotent from Torah to Jesus.
Over the ages, Jews and Christians have shared one God. In their communities they mine the same scriptures for different purposes. For centuries neither knew much about the other outside of commerce and labor. The result of ignorance is often prejudice, fear, rumor, stereotypes that breed misunderstandings and at times violence. But today it is commonplace to find distinguished Jewish professors teaching New Testament, not difficult for a Christian to attend Jewish services, not difficult to learn from these distinctive storehouses of wisdom and spirituality. Perhaps it is the singleness of a God who, after milennia, has prepared the time when we may see one hand in it all.
