THE ENCOUNTER

Missionaries who target the Jewish community are active on the internet, radio, and television, and on high school and college campuses. The following steps will help if you have an encounter:

Step 1: Avoid getting drawn into a conversation you don’t want to have. Politely disengage as quickly as possible.

Step 2: Remember that just because you don’t have an answer doesn’t mean the missionary is correct.

Step 3: If you feel uncomfortable or confused, get a second opinion from someone who is more knowledgeable, e.g., Rabbi, teacher, friend or parent.

The Defense

Tip 1: The best defense is a good offense. Here are some useful tips:

Tip 2: Get involved in the Jewish community. Judaism is fun and relevant.

Tip 3: Explore your own faith and traditions.

Tip 4: Encourage critical thinking.

Tip 5: Beware of deceptive and manipulative practices.

Tip 6: Ask family and friends for help.

A Text out of Context…

When missionaries use the Jewish bible to prove their point, many of the passages they quote are taken out of context and mistranslated.

Remember that the original text may be very different from what they claim. Don’t be fooled.
