Jews & Evangelicals: From Missionizing to Partnership?

By Yehiel Poupko

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), May 2007

The author acknowledges that Evangelical Christians pose a great conundrum for American Jews. He breaks down the perception of many American Jews of Evangelicals as coming from a lower socioeconomic class and being less cultured. Jewish history has taught us that as Jews, we have to take our friends where we can get them, but in the case of Evangelical support and friendship, it must be accompanied by a clear statement that we find efforts to missionize us anathema.
