Older Younger Brother – the tragic treatment by Christians of the Jews
As I pursue my daily work in Iraq I never forget at the heart of my journey here was my love for a very different land and people. Israel and Judaism was and is my first love. It is my academic discipline and also my spiritual passion. I often say that the two most important things in my life were finding my wonderful wife Caroline and secondly studying at yeshiva (rabbinic seminary) in Israel. It was here that I really gained my immense love for the Torah and the great rabbinic writings. It is a love that will never leave me.
I often joke with my Jewish friends that I am more (froom / orthodox) than they are. My Judaic learning was ultra orthodox and thus very conservative, though my first teacher of Judaism whom I have dedicated this book to was a very liberal Rabbi, Professor Nicholas de Lange, who first taught me at Cambridge. I will never forget what he gave me.
This book tells the sad history of the relationship the between the older and younger brothers, Judaism and Christianity.
The book cover shows Canon Andrew White with the Ashkenazie Chief Rabbi of Israel Rabbi David Lau and Rabbi Michael Melchior
