roots in susceptible to mis-
sionary appeals at a time of
transition or vulnerability:
entering college, loss of a lov-
ed one, divorce, involvement
in drugs and leaving college.
After the Baltimore office
began operations, similar
groups were organized suc-
cessively in Los Angeles, Har-
risburg, Pa., and then in
Brooklyn.
Missionaries are encourag-
ed to reach out, to go where
Jews are, particularly college
campuses. They go through
telephone directories, looking
for Jewish-sounding names to
use in mailing lists. They are
encouraged to strike up per-
sonal friendships with young
Jews and to invite them to
meetings where the Jews are
assured of warm welcomes
and sympathetic listeners to
their problems.
Levey said Jews for
Judaism groups seek to offset
the "brainwashing" by the
Christian missionaries. He
said names are obtained from
parents who have lost
children to missionary cults,
and where possible, the
disillusioned cult victim is
made welcome at a Jewish
home.
According to a report in
"Coalition," the Agudath
Israel newsletter, Jews for
Judaism has reclaimed 70
Jews who had already con-
verted, and prevented
countless others from taking
that step.
Each Jews for Judaism of-
fice has a speakers bureau,
Levey said, but the speakers
bureau in the Baltimore office
operates at the national level.
Jews for Judaism is a
privately-financed, tax-
exempt non-profit agency in-
dependent of any natinal
Jewish organization or of any
Jewish denominational
group.
After passing the bar in
Washington, Levey worked
for a law firm in Washington,
then was transferred to the
firm's Los Angeles office.
Aimless in his personal life,
he drifted into a group called
Beth Messiah. The Bronx-
born attorney attended ser-
vices of Beth Messiah
regularly.
After 18 months, Levey
became disillusioned with the
Beth Messiah "theology,"
after seeing that Beth
Messiah "spiritual" leaders
taught members that conver-
sion to Christianity would
give them close ties to God
and solve all their problems.
He noticed that many of his
fellow members remained
unhappy and were obviously
not getting the inner peace
and happiness promised
them.
