- The Dabru Emet (Heb. דברו אמת "Speak [the] Truth") is a document concerning the relationship between Christianity and Judaism. It was signed by over 220 rabbis and intellectuals from all branches of Judaism, as individuals and not as representing any organisation or stream of Judaism. In light of the Second Vatican Council in 1965, the Dabru Emet was first published on 10 September 2000, in The New York Times, and has since been used in Jewish education programs across the U.S. While affirming that there are theological differences between these two religions, the purpose of Dabru Emet is to point out common ground and a legitimacy of Christianity, for non-Jews, from the Jewish perspective. It is not an official document of any of the Jewish denominations per se, but it is representative of what many Jews feel. Eight major themes are expressed: 1.
* Jews and Christians worship the same God 2.
* Jews and Christians seek authority from the same book 3.
* Christians can respect the claim of the Jews on the land of Israel 4.
* Jews and Christians together accept the moral principles of the Torah (Pentateuch) 5.
* Nazism is not a Christian phenomenon 6.
* The controversy between Jews and Christians will not be settled until God redeems the entire world as promised in scripture and no-one should be pressed into believing another's belief 7.
* A new relationship between Jews and Christians will not weaken Jewish practice 8.
* Jews and Christians must work together for justice and peace (en)
