Overview

"Sacred Roots looks back to that pivotal First Century and demonstrates the actual closeness of Judaism to early Christianity. Rabbi Plotkin has served an ecumenical pulpit for the last 50 plus years and at age 80 is still serving. His education has led him to research both his roots and his neighbor's Christian roots to discover both differences and close similarities. His is not the first text to explore Christianity's ties to Judaism, but Rabbi Plotkin brings to the academic table a lack of Christian prejudice that attempts to justify the Christian position. Instead, he looks with clear eyes and a loving heart at both his own religious tradition and the one he has encountered across the table of friendly relations. In light of the terrible manner the Church has historically treated Jews, his warm and opened manner demonstrates a sense of kinship not often felt. The similarities are striking. The differences deserving of heartfelt respect for this old religion to which both Christianity and Islam owe so much."
