Missionaries Try to Convert Jerusalem Kashrut Supervisor – Lose Certification

It's never a good idea to try to convert the Rabbi.

Following an investigation by the anti-missionary organization Yad L’Achim into ‘Cafe Porta’, located in the Clal building in Jerusalem, the organization reported to the Kashrut division of Jerusalem’s Religious Authority that the cafe appears to be a missionary center.

Missionary activity is frowned upon in Israel, and illegal in certain circumstances.

At first, the Kashrut division had no proof, nor any legal steps they could take against the cafe.

But when the Kashrut division sent its own inspectors to check on the report, they were taken by surprise when the owners gave missionary material, including a New Testament, to the Kashrut supervisor, apparently in an attempt to begin the proselytization process on the Rabbi.

Needless to say, the Kashrut certification for the cafe was immediately revoked.

  1. To the best of my knowledge, Israel doesn't behead missionaries. They just revoke their Kosher certification, which is not quite as serious.

  2. We were Jews before Jesus, and we don't need any newfangled religion. When God comes back to Sinai and says "I changed my mind" we'll talk.

  3. Not remotely true. You can be whatever religion you want but you don't get to push it on others. The rest of the middle east has one religion and all others are illegal. The world headquarters of the Bahai faith is in Israel, just as an example.

  4. Yeah, like being a Buddhist Muslim. A Christian is not a Jew and a Jew is not a Christian.

  5. In theory, you're right. But when your history is one of forced conversion or death, being polite is not the first thing that comes to your mind.

  6. Luana Fabri Goriss says:

    Very good. Will missionary chutzpah never end?

  7. Lisa Liel says:

    What a bunch of idiots.

  8. Jennifer Badani says:

    I just found out that there's 9 palestinian news wires in Israel. Some are funded by Hamas & Saudi Arabia. There's only 1 jewish news wire in Israel.

  9. Robin Schwartz says:

    A Jew always remains a Jew. A Jew who converts to another religion is a Jew who is in the wrong–but still and always a Jew.

  10. Malkah Sorel says:

    Because xtianity lacks spirituality essence is automatically assumed to be a physical essence. Very interesting. If they were Torah observant they certainly would be idolators even if it is a Jewish Human they are seeking to Idolise

  11. Robin Schwartz says:

    This is an example of knee-jerk moral relativism. The fact that you can make ANY comparison between sharia and Israeli law automatically invalidates your argument, IMHO

  12. Malkah Sorel says:

    WHy is it that Jews don't want to convert and Christians do??? Truth is a soul is what it is, Chsitianity is clipper (cloak of negativity) that people wear. The soul is what it is either Jewish or from the nations. Xtianity is just a covering and it comes from the side of impurity, end of story

    Jews have to learn to say no without going into political correctness and all the junk that is used by them in our society. We have to be able to discuss religion where necessary without using the political system and without using violence.

  16. Must be a big feather on their hat if they succeed to convert a Jew. After all that's what they trying to do in the last two thousand years, with a zero result.

  17. Malkah Sorel says:

    What a load of twaddle Mr Watts

  18. Malkah Sorel says:

    Georgia, What is wrong with allowing pornography to be handed to your husband on his way to work, or a brothel next to your children's school.

  19. How ironic I'm reading this today. I converted from Catholicism to Orthodox Judaism 34 years ago on 14 Chesvan. This is definitely a message

  20. Wow! Just handing out a book and some material about his religious faith in the Messiah is enough to convert a person. Who knew it was so easy? All believers in Yeshua should try doing that, by 2015 the whole world will believe in him! For a country like Israel that is supposed to be free this is a disgrace. Either the leaders believe the people are so weak minded that they can't think for themselves or they believe that the evidence is to compelling.That messianic ideas might prove sound in the light of day if given a fair chance. I think I'll go to Jerusalem and pass out booklets about unicorns. Perhaps I can get everyone to believe in them. No one can make you believe in Yeshua. Only G-d changes the heart.

  21. Yair Lax says:

    Whats wrong with offering poision, to the uneducated ?

  22. Yair Lax says:

    Your a special kind of special !!!

  23. Anonymous says:

    If a Jew believes that J.C. was Mashiach, he/she is NOT "Torah observant," by definition! Hashem clearly states what will happen when Mashiach comes, and they ain't happened yet. In addition, Hashem clearly states what to do when someone comes along and claims to be Mashiach but is merely a wannabe, as happened in that case.

  24. Yair Lax says:

    Goldberg wants to buy his worker a present. He goes to the jewlery store and sees a cross. He asks the salesman How much is dat vun ? He hears the price and says its to much, How much without the "MAMZER" ?

  25. Dotti Lamont says:

    What were those Yad L'Achim people doing there…they were just asking for hearing the Messianic Yeshua news…just what they wanted…don't they know that restaurant in the Chal bldg. is Messianic? Yes, they did…they didn't belong there, they are trouble makers!

  26. Tabitha Elkins says:

    Malkah Sorel It's a sad history that a small Jewish offshoot group run by a rabbi (Yeshua) was overrun by pagan Romans and turned into a tool of oppression against Jewish people. If you could separate the pagan crap out of the REAL message of Yeshua, you would see that his teachings are VERY Jewish.

  27. Christianity compared to Jusdaism is like comparing Physics to tinker toys – The DEEP infinite and mysterious Universe to an inch of water in the gutter. Oh, and Jesus was the bastard son of a whore…

  28. It's been done sir with stunning success. First there was Jesus, testified to and confirmed in Scripture. Then came Peter, the illustrious Saul of Tarsus (Paul) and countless other Jews we Lee our faith to. As Jesus says….salvation is from the Jews.

  29. There is a wonder organization, Jews for Judaism. Great info and they are good at speaking to teenagers. Temples have to be much more welcoming to gentiles , even if it's only to get to know us. My temple is great at that. We have a number of interfaith families who are raising their kids Jewish and gentile spouse is usually incredibly active in our community. We don't pressure about conversion but many grow to love Judaism with their involvement until conversion becomes a natural step. We have a terrific Confirmation program for post b'nei mitzvah kids so they stay involved.
    When my son was in high school at Taft in Woodland Hills , large Jewish demographic, there was a missionary handing out pamphlets. Most Christians think we're "just being stubborn" about not accepting Jesus. They have no idea there are valid reasons why we don't. I have a printout from Jews for Judaism that explains why. So, after I dropped my son off at school I got out and spoke to the young man handing out the material. I had my pamphlet which I held out to him and said " I'll read yours if you'll read mine."
    I din't know what happened but he wasn't there the next day.

  30. WOW. What an extraordinary change to make.

  31. Oriana Cottard says:

    Missionaries are just like muslims, trying to converte the whole world whos is not from their so call belief!!!
    Let us Be in peace. We Jews are G-d's people do get it once for all now we don't need your sick sects!!!!

  32. You cannot be both a Christian and a Jew. Read the Shema….G_d is ONE ,can't be split, can't believe in a trinity .

  33. Ronny Mol says:

    Not sure who is right? Watch Torah and Science in English, Hebrew, Turkish and Russian at http://www.divineinformation.com and know that the Torah is divine for once and all.

  34. Yechiel Baum says:

    the checks to the Rabbinut seems to be the criteria before an inspection. It leaves people to doubt the credibility of the kashrut organizations.

  35. Hadassah Lerner says:

    Thanks for sharing this. I live here and hadn't heard about this yet!

  36. Sheera Blitz says:

    Jewish missionary for Jews is not missionary – it's restoring faith in their own religion.
    Judaism is not a religion for missionary – not everyone should be Jewish, it's not our way. Christianity & Islam seek to bring the whole world to their respective religions but it's a sheer misunderstanding of Jewish principles to seek the same for us. We need to fix the world, not convert it.

  37. Nicolle Simon says:

    Robin Schwartz – only by Nazi calculation.
