sistencies between their teachings and the Hebrew Scriptures and abandoned
Christianity. He has devoted himself to countering the efforts of missionaries who
target Jews. He has successfully counseled many Jews who embraced Christian
beliefs, to help them find their way back to Judaism. Mr. Ciss enthralls Jewish
