What is "Jews for Jesus" afraid of? Jews for Jesus DOES NOT post this video on its YouTube Channel but Jews for Judaism DOES. Why? SHALOM I believe in Jesus, Jews for Jesus vs Jews for Judaism with former Jews for Jesus Julius Ciss is a vintage video documentary exposé on Messianic Jews for Jesus featuring former Jew for Jesus Julius Ciss, Executive Director of Jews for Judaism (Canada), and Rabbi Michael Skobac, its Education Director. Recorded in 1992, it is a York University film project by Benjamin Wilchfort, which alerts Jews to the threat of Jews for Jesus missionaries and highlights the counter-missionary work of Jews for Judaism. © 1994 - Benjamin Wilchfort.
This video recording is the earliest known counter-missionary video footage of both Rabbi Michael Skobac and Julius Ciss, either alone, or together responding to Jews for Jesus.
Also featured in the video is Baruch Goldstein. For many years, Goldstein was a leading member of the “Jews for Jesus” organization. However, at the time of this video, he had left Jews for Jesus and was the spiritual leader of Congregation Melech Yisrael in Toronto, Canada, the same Messianic Synagogue that Julius Ciss had been a member of for five years, from 1976 to 1980.
Prior to Baruch Goldstein’s death on Oct. 26, 2008, Goldstein had asked Ciss to meet with him at a kosher restaurant in Toronto. At that meeting Goldstein confided with Ciss that he no longer believed in Jesus. These former spiritual opponents parted that day as friends.
