In 1983 I attended my first conference on interrelious dialogue, at the ICCJ (International Conference of Christians and Jews ) in the Martin Buber house in Heppenheim, Germany. It was there when I first met and heard David Hartman. I do not remember ever having been moved more deeply than when listening to his lecture on the probably most important subject imaginable: "Creating space for the integrity of the other" However strange or swntimental It may seem, I remember tears running down my cheeks. I will never forget these words, never forget the deep impact on my understanding of Judaism, or maybe even more on Being Jewish he has had. I am grateful having known him and I am sure that our regular Jewish wish " may his memory be a blessing to all who loved him", is not only a blessing, but also a promise to all those who have ever known him, enjoyed his lessons and loved him!
