Rabbi Urges Jews to Accept Jesus As Prophet

Jewish circles were discussing today the statement of Rabbi Maurice N. Eisendrath in the Holy Blossom Synagogue yesterday in which he declared that it was high time the Jews of the world accepted Jesus as a prophet. Calling upon Jew and Christian to unite in the cause of a common humanity, he described Christ “as the towering figure that will lead them gently into this comradeship and fellowship with those multitudes that find in this gentle Jew the profoundest object of their reverence and esteem.”
