Missionaries Target Jews by Mail

BROOKLYN [CHI] — Over the last few weeks Jewish residents in Crown Heights, as well as other Jewish neighborhoods such as Boro Park and Williamsburg, received a plain non-descript package by mail containing a book, which at first glance does not sound like a missionary book.

The title of the book is “They Thought for Themselves” by Sid Roth, contains camouflaged stories about Judaism with the missionary idea behind it. There is even an entire chapter dedicated to Chabad, Mishechisim, and Shluchim.

Readers are urged to take care and make sure these book do not make it onto your shelves, or into the hands of children.

    The book arrived last week & immediately looked suspicious. After a quick glance & realization I threw it out. A shame I couldn’t flush it down the toilet.

    It’s just like spam, only the sender throws away their money by printing and mass mailing all this propaganda.

    I can’t wait for their mass mailing campaign to Muslims.

    I got this a long time ago. I think the major red flag was the book itelf: who sends free books in the mail? B”H, I didn’t even bring it into our home. By hashgacha pratis I was waiting for one of my sons’ busses and it got thrown out right away.

    I already received 2 copies. It’s very sneaky, it is written by someone with a Jewish name and the cover mentions “10 Jews who thought for themselves”. It looked suspicious, but I opened it, got mad, then threw it where it belonged, in the garbage. Sad, how someone could use their wealth for such perversion, the author even boasts about it. I guess he’ll have some explaining to do!
