People are still talking about the Washington D.C. and San Diego campaigns, even though they are over. For interesting comments from a Jewish source on the D.C. campaign, check out this page.
Also, the October edition of the San Diego Jewish Journal was filled with letters from people protesting Micah Sachs’s September article, “The Messianic Mess.” Sachs began by telling about the (then) upcoming San Diego BYG campaign and went on to say that “The Jewish attitude toward Messianics has more to do with emotion than intellect.” Sachs asks how anyone proudly wearing a “Jews for Jesus” T-shirt can be considered deceptive. He points out that the Jewish community does not recoil at humanistic Jews or Jewish Buddhists, who are no less incompatible with traditional Judaism than believers in Jesus.
In a note following the many letters that came in response, Sachs said there was not room to print all the letters that came in response to his article…more letters than have been received in the history of the column. Included with the letters the Journal did print was one from a Jewish believer who pointed out that the number of complaints Sachs is likely to get from Jewish leaders will only go to prove much of what the article had to say.
Here’s the final scoop from San Diego:
They handed out 154,443 tracts, spoke to 40 Jews and 98 Gentiles willing to know more about Jesus, and prayed with 3 Jews and 19 Gentiles to receive the Lord.
