Jews for Jesus

Comedian Jackie Mason, who is also an ordained rabbi, is suing Jews for Jesus for putting his image on a pamphlet aimed to convert Jews to Christianity. A Jews for Jesus spokesman says, “He’s a public persona. It [the pamphlet] postulated that even someone as Jewish as Jackie Mason could come to the faith of Jesus if he wanted to. It’s humorous, hardly labeling him a Jew for Jesus . . . we thought it would be flattering to him.” [csr 5.3 2006]
