The Limits of Friendship

By David Elcott

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), May 2007

In considering the relationship of Jews to Evangelicals, the author asks what it means to support the State of Israel today, including the possibility of territorial division. He asserts that we should embrace in friendship and dialogue our Christian brothers and sisters and seek common cause where we can while engaging in respectful dialogue when we disagree. The greatest defenders of Israel, however, are those of us who advocate for an end to the conflict and peace for all those who reside in the land we all call holy.
