Reading about Rabbi Matthew and Black Judaism was very appealing to me. I found the information stated in the prologue interesting and helpful in my interpretation of this chapter. Rabbi Matthew’s views of Christianity shocked me however I understand where he is coming from. Black Judaism in Harlem peaked my interest because as a child I assumed that all African Americans were Christians. However after reading this chapter, I noticed that there is a lot of overlap between these two religions. After reading, I researched about the black jews and their history.
