When someone attacks the messenger instead of the message it is indeed a sad thing. I was upset and passionate about the presence of Jews for Jesus, Messianic Jews—also known as Hebrew Christians— and other missionaries at the Celebrate Israel Festival.
Meeting The Challenge:
Hebrew Christians and the Jewish Community
Originally prepared by
The Jewish Community Relations Council of New York
Task Force on Missionaries and Cults
In today’s evangelical crusade for Jewish souls, missionaries have found one particularly vulnerable segment of our community. Unlike Jews in the West, who are usually somewhat resistant to conversion, our brethren who have lived behind the Iron Curtain are much less able to withstand the overtures of Christian missionaries.
In their battle for international peace and the “Kingdom to Come” the Hebrew Christian movement deployed diplomats to the 2014 Christ at the Checkpoint conference in Israel.
When missionaries like Jews for Jesus, Messianic Jews and a host of other such organizations, share the belief that Jesus was Messiah and G-d. In doing so, they are espousing a belief system which is Christian, not Jewish.
Is it true that miracles prove the validity of Christianity?
Can a Jew retain their Jewish Identity once they convert to another faith?
World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) and the Berlin Document Targeting Jews
This past August, an international task force of Christians and “Messianic Jews” a.k.a. Hebrew Christians, met for a four-day conference in Berlin Germany to discuss “The Uniqueness of Christ and Jewish Evangelism in Europe Today.”
