A Rabbi Looks at Christianity from the Inside

This week, while Christians around the world observe Holy week, encompassing the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus, Jews have been celebrating Passover to mark the exodus of Israelites from ancient Egypt.

Rabbi Joshua Martin Siegel speaks with Scott Simon about his experience inside the Christian church.
