Is Messianic Judaism Dying in Israel?

    CLEVELAND, Oct. 23 /CNW/ -- A look at recent discriminatory activity in
Israel by Jewish citizens will reveal that they have never been more against
the Messianic activities occurring in parts of Israel, reports, a social networking website dedicated to uniting the
worldwide Messianic community.
    Jews for Judaism, an international counter-missionary organization,
states on their website, they feel that the noticeable growth in the number of
Israelis converting to Christianity is due to "the efforts of Evangelical
missionaries who use 'Messianic Judaism' to deceptively describe their form of
'Christianity for Jews.'"
    "It is inevitable that in the next few generations, the Messianic
population will eventually die out due to marriage and loss of tradition,"
claims Azzan Rosen*, an independent Israeli tour guide. "Interfaith marriages
will ultimately eliminate the Messianics because eventually the Jewish
traditions will be lost in future generations and belief in Yeshua will
logically lead to a Christian way of life. That's exactly what happened after
Yeshua -- his followers were Jewish but some generations later, that community
was Christian."
    Despite the opinion that Messianic Jewish community will eventually phase
out, there is growing evidence that the Messianic Jewish community in Israel
has never been stronger.  Israel was once home to 3,000 Jewish believers, and
today the Messianic Jewish community consists of approximately 15,000 members
within the country and approximately 300,000 members across the world. "Many
say it's the strongest growth since the time of Jesus and that the Messianic
movement could be on the brink of a great revival," states a Christian
Broadcasting Network report on the Messianic Jewish community in Israel. provides a platform for people across the globe to
connect with other Messianic believers. In the midst of the current Messianic
struggle, there is no easier way for Messianic believers in Israel to reach
their brothers and sisters in other countries than through the Internet, and
The Messianic Center offers the tools to connect people of all faiths together
to dialog and support one another.

Judaism eventually be replaced with Christianity? Are deceitful methods used
to convert Israeli Jews?  Discuss controversial issues facing the world-wide
