Jews for Jesus

Jews for Jesus is a Christian[1] evangelistic organization that focuses specifically on the conversion of Jews to Christianity. Its members consider themselves to be Jewish — either Jewish as defined by Jewish law, or Jews according to Jews for Jesus — as “living out their Jewishness.”[2] Jews for Jesus defines “Jewish” in terms of parentage and as a birthright, regardless of religious belief.[3] The identification of Jews for Jesus as a Jewish organization is overwhelmingly rejected by Jewish religious denominations[4][5] and secular Jewish groups[6][7] due to the Christian – specifically evangelical – beliefs of its members. The group’s evangelical activities are opposed also by some Christian organizations and scholars.[8][9]
