From the Jewish Standard (link):
TEANECK â€“ As township resident Alan Brill takes his post as Seton Hall Universityâ€™s new point man for the betterment of Jewish-Catholic relations, a question begs to be asked: But is it good for the Jews?
Of course, says Brill, a 46-year-old Orthodox rabbi with a doctorate in Jewish mysticism from another Catholic institution, the Jesuit-run Fordham University. "This is important because the definition of â€˜Jewish communityâ€™ should not be just inwardly focused," he says, adding that interfaith outreach "is a major way to define Judaism in a broader, outwardly expansive way and show how we can contribute and what we can do."
Please do not assume that I view this as either a positive or negative development. I have no opinion on the matter. I just think that it is one of public interest.
