You are invited to celebrate Passover with us! Our missionaries will be touring your area of
the country soon to present Christ in the Passover.

/— '

They will display the customary items of a traditional Jewish Passover and describe the
historical and spiritual significance of each. The ceremony and pageantry of the Passover
celebration illustrate the central theme, "Christ, the Lamb of God which takes away the sin
of the world."

The climax of the presentation is the portrayal of Communion as Jesus celebrated it with his
disciples in the upper room. It's exciting to piece together all the events which led to Jesus'
words when he took the cup after the Passover supper and said, 'This is the New Covenant
in my blood...." Come and discover why Passover is so meaningful for the church. We can't
serve you a Passover feast, but we can give you plenty of food for thought.

Turn this page to find the nearest church where you can see this extraordinary presentation.

\- Jews Are Picketing
`Passover' Program

ALAN HITSKY

News Editor

A

N

fledgling anti-cult
group is picketing
performances of the
national Jews for Jesus'
Christ in the Passover produc-
tion at 11 area churches.
Jews for Jesus "is not ex-
pressing the Christian love
we are used to," said Ronnie
Schreiber, who told The
Jewish News that Jews for
Jesus leader Mitch Glaser
tried to intimidate him by
threatening a lawsuit if
Schreiber's group pickets the
area churches.
Schreiber, Iry Wengrow of
the Troy Jewish Congrega-
tion, and Robert Arcand of
the Greater Detroit Interfaith
Roundtable, have contacted
the churches in Troy,
Plymouth, Bloomfield Hills,
Clawson, Warren, Fraser,
Grosse Pointe Woods, Yp-
silanti, Flat Rock, and Mt.
Clemens, expressing their
concern over the perform-
ances and asking the church
pastors to consider programs
in the future that "help your,
parishioners understand
other faiths."

Wengrow's letter stated
that Jews for Jesus "con-
tinues to pose a threat to the
longstanding good relation-
ship between our faiths in
our area. Representations

made by Jews for Jesus in
furtherance of their pro-
selytizing and fundraising ac-
tivities are offensive to the
Jewish community, not
representative of Judaism,
and destructive of the fellow-
ship which Christian and
Jewish groups strive so hard
to achieve.
"The Jews for Jesus doc-
trine is an admixture of rab-
binic Judaism with Christian
tenets. Their theology ne-
gates the uniqueness, and
denies the legitimacy of both
our faiths. Their misrep-
resentations and outright un-
truths about both Jewish and
Christian belief systems
shoud be offensive to Chris-
tians as well as Jews.
"In - particular,
their
Passover presentation dis-
plays half-truths in such a
manner so as to falsely show
a connective relationship be-
tween Judaism and Chris-
tianity through the Passover
holiday ..."
The letters were initiated
by the Jewish Community
Council.
Ronnie Schreiber said he is
forming a local Jews for Jews
chapter to combat the Jews
for Jesus. But he emphasized
that his picketing efforts will
be a peaceful, informational
campaign. "We will only have
a few people at any church.
We do not want a confronta-
tion."
