UNION LEADERS RESPOND TO FALSE ACCUSATION IN THE TIMES OF ISRAEL



A recent blog on the Times of Israel website entitled “The Devious Way That Messianic Jews Are Trying to Destroy Judaism” was filled with misrepresentations and unfounded accusations against the Messianic Jewish community. UMJC President Dr. John Fischer and Rabbinic Counsel Russ Resnik responded with the

following blog, which Times of Israel declined to post.


As Jewish followers of Yeshua haMashiach (Jesus the Messiah), we welcome dialogue and even debate with the wider Jewish community. We recognize that, for some, relating to us would not be for the purpose of debating, but of marginalizing and excluding us. Nevertheless, we insist on the right to define ourselves, our beliefs and practices, and our sense of relationship with the Jewish people.
