The Yad L’Achim counter missionary organization held an informative event last Tuesday evening at Lubavitch Yeshiva in Crown Heights.
Speaking were 2 experts on missionary, cult and rescue tactics who shared advice on how to protect ourselves and our children from the missionaries who have begun targeting Crown Heights.
Yoav Goldfein from Yad L’Achim, an expert in counter missionary tactics and the deceitful practices of cults, presented firsthand dramatic stories of rescue and the mitzvah of Pidyon Shvuyim.
He also educated the audience on tricks used by missionaries to ensnare people.
Another speaker, A. Schiff, “the Maharam Schiff’s grandson who returned,” shared his personal story of how he became a missionary for the “Messianic Jews for J.” cult in Israel, and how he left.
A short film depicting an actual rescue from a village was shown during the event as well.
