Missionary's Mailings
To Target Local Jews

DAVID HOLZEL

Staff Writer

A

local "Hebrew-
Christian" group is
planning a mass mail-
ing of missionary literature
next month to the Jewish
community.
The literature will in-
troduce Jews to Jesus and of-
fer free copies of the New
Testament Gospel of Matthew
in English and Yiddish, ac-
cording to Loren Jacobs of
Shema Yisrael, a Southfield-
based Hebrew-Christian
organization.
Some 30,000 Jewish homes
are to receive the mailings,
Jacobs said. He would not
disclose the sources of his
mailing list.
"Hebrew Christians" or
"Messianic Jews" are Jews
who believe that Jesus is the
messiah. They declare tradi-
tional Judaism invalid and
have been embraced and sup-
ported by evangelical Chris-
tian groups who see them as
a means of proselytizing the
Jewish community.

Batya
and
Ronnie
Schreiber, local Jews who are
opposing missionary efforts,
suggest that those who
receive the Shema Yisrael
mailings mark the unopened
envelope, "Objectionable
material, return to sender,"
and have the post office
return the mailing.
They said that recipients
may be taken off Shema
Yisrael's mailing list by com-
pleting postal service form
No. 2150. The Shema Yisrael
mailing and its envelope
must be included with the
form.
Shema Yisrael's project was
publicized in a recent
newsletter of the Lederer
Messianic Ministries of
Baltimore. Lederer Executive
Director Barry Rubin re-
quested financial aid from his
readers for the project.
"Pray for this bold outreach
and if you would like to have
a part in it, indicate your ex-
tra gift on the enclosed
response coupon," Rubin
wrote. "We're stepping out on
faith with Loren on this!"
