Chabad in Orlando Presents: Why The Jewish People Rejected The Christian Messiah. An analysis of the Biblical sources and an exploration into the Jewish view of this fascinating topic with Rabbi Zalman Kravitz
Why Have the Jewish people rejected the Christian Messiah for 2000 years? We have been killed, expelled and treated as second class citizens over the centuries by the Inquisition, the Crusaders and many others while we stubbornly held on to our Torah, why didn't we convert and live happily with our neighbors?
Today, in the free world, where thank G-d Jews are well integrated in to every facet of society we no longer face the choice our ancestors were forced to face - the sword or the Cross. However, almost every American Jews has encountered a friend, co-worker or neighbor who at some point has approached them with a statement or question like "I wish you would"
Because of the fierce proselytizing in Israel today by evangelical Christians, I share your page often. Keep up the great work. You are the number one force against the reckless "Jews for Jesus" movement.
Your presentation helped our URJ members feel that they are not alone in the struggle and that they have someone to turn to with real expertise.. I was especially grateful for your sensitivity and respectfulness in dealing with the needs of the Reform Jewish community.
The issues that you raised in your presentation are important for all high school students to hear.. Our students voted to ask you to speak again.
Thank you so much for an exciting and absorbing afternoon.. In fact, no one left early, an unusual occurrence at our luncheons.
Your lecture opened our eyes.. We loved your presentation.. We visited your website and it is a wonderful supplement to your seminars.. Jews for Judaism is a very good idea.
