Jews for Judaism is the only international, full-time counter-missionary, counter-cult, educational, outreach and counselling organization dedicated to countering the multi-million-dollar efforts of deceptive missionary and cult groups that target the Jewish community for conversion.
As assimilation and Jewish apathy continue to rise at an alarming rate, the Jewish community is confronted by the increasing efforts of fundamentalist Christian missionaries.
Each year, over eight hundred different missionary groups spend in excess of $250 million towards converting Jews. They utiilize new, sophisticated and deceptive techniques, such as making Christianity appear Jewish in order to attract converts.
Jews for Judaism has offices in Baltimore, Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, South Africa and a network in Israel, Europe, Australia, and the former Soviet Union. It is the only full-time counter-missionary resource center in the world which works exclusively to monitor and combat deceptive Christian missionary efforts.
