"Jews and Christians are different in a lot of ways. Some Christian people will actually have religious bumper stickers on their cars. Like ‘Jesus is King,’ ‘The Lord Jesus Saves.’ Jews don’t do that. You’ll never see, ‘Honk if you love Moses.’"
— Gregg Rogell, comedian
"The word amen, which found its way from Judaism into Christianity and Islam, crossing cultures and continents, borders and chasms, is in fact an acronym of the Hebrew phrase ‘el melech ne’eman.’ Spoken in response to a blessing, it means: the words of the blessing are true and may they come to pass…Since that word is so universal, it symbolizes for me, much as literature does, everything that we, all of humanity, have in common despite the differences in our way of thinking, in our faith, and our inner and outer landscapes, the living, quivering hope of every human being for forgiveness, salvation, mercy. And so I think that even the very fact of its existence is comforting, although all our wishes may not come true."
