Hebrew Roots is a group of Torah-observant gentiles who believe that Jesus was the Messiah, yet they do not want to be called either Jews or Christians. They don’t celebrate Christmas or Easter, and they don’t display crosses. Instead, they observe Passover and Sukkot, wear tzitzit, and post mezuzahs on their doors. They believe that the Torah is still binding, and they aim to follow the Torah as they believe Jesus himself would have. They see the New Testament as an extension of the Old. Estimates put the worldwide number of Hebrew Roots followers at 200,000 to 300,000, most of whom have joined in the past 15 years. They have used the Internet successfully to spread their convictions (Tablet, February 4).
