Community Responses to the Proselytization of Jews

By Natalie Isser, Lita Linzer Schwartz

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), September 1980

The only support that many young people have found has been in peer approval and empathy. Thus, to vulnerable adolescents who are lonely, idealistic, and sometimes rebellious and confused, the new missionary religious movements or cults have offered new opportunities for activities requiring commitment to clearly-defined goals. In the face of too many choices, the cults offer freedom from decision-making. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, v.57 no.1, Fall 1980.
