Summertime and the fishermen are jumpin’…

Christian missionary campaigns are in full swing throughout the land of Israel, and counter-missionary organizations are doing what they can to contend with the onslaught.

Last week Jewish Israel received complaints that the Raanana shopping areas and Raanana junction were being plagued by missionaries. That’s because Jews for Jesus has launched a massive missionary campaign in Tel Aviv and the surrounding towns.

Arutz 7 is reporting that the missionaries' latest gimmick is the placing of thousands of "traffic tickets" on cars. Only when the worried driver turns over the "ticket" does he or she see its true message: "You can relax; someone has paid the fine in your place… He’s called Yeshua [Jesus]…"

In reaction to increased proselytizing in the center of the country Yad l’Achim director Rabbi Shalom Lifshitz said, "Now is the time to demand a change to the missionary law, and to put a stop to this wild, criminal missionary activity that leads to tragic results."

Meanwhile, the missionary organization Chosen People Ministries has been active in Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Jerusalem, Netanya, Ashkelon and Sderot…

How do you solve a problem like Maria?

Chosen People Ministries have just announced that missionary Maria is Jerusalem-bound and will be joining up with the "outreach"team of Rachel, Robynne, Erin, Aletha, Chelsey, Cynthia, Kristin, Rachel, Sarah, Daniel. They complete their "mission" in Israel on June 23.

Bought dentures and brought to jesus

Chosen Peoples' Missionary "Maxim K. ministers to more than 70 Holocaust survivors in the city of Sderot." Recently Maxim and his co-worker Eugene helped one elderly Jew buy new dentures and in the process brought him to Jesus (it seems they're still working on his wife).

Hot and bothered and need some answers ?
If missionaries are disturbing your peace, take a deep breath and try the following:
a) Call your local municipality and demand some action
b) Inform the trained counter-missionary activists in your area.
c) Put pressure on the government for appropriate counter-missionary legislation
d) Call the local rabbis to task on this issue and ask them for their guidance and guidelines.
e) Take a counter missionary course from an expert who has been there and done that and learn how to respond. Contact Penina Taylor of Shomrei Emet
f) Organize public awareness seminars in your neighborhood. Jewish Israel is available to give presentations in either English or Hebrew for your community (synagogue, community center, parlor meeting). These dynamic presentations will alert you to severity of the situation and inspire your community to take proper action and make informed decisions. Contact us at
