Messianic Group Targets Big City Jews

The Messianic group Israel Restoration Ministries, a California-based group devoted to proselytizing to Jews, has embarked on a summer campaign, the Baltimore Jewish Times reports.

The new push to convert Jews from populous Jewish communities is called “Summer Blitz.” It targets communities in New York, Baltimore, Boston, Miami and Chicago through August.

Trained representatives are going door-to-door with booklets and DVDs, as they did last summer when they knocked on over 800,000 doors. The project has more than 140 participants.
