I have always wondered why not mentioning Jesus is sensitive to Jews? Why does blending faiths mean pretending he does not exist? This part of blended ceremonies never makes sense to me? Any thoughts?

I don’t think it’s “pretending Jesus doesn’t exist.” Rather, when having a joint or interfaith service, it makes more sense to focus on that which we have in common (God), not that which separates our religions (belief in Jesus as messiah). Jews and Christians alike can find meaning in saying a prayer to God; Jews do not pray to Jesus and will likely not want to say or participate in prayers that mention his name or are directed at him.
