Jews for Jesus is a Christian[1][2] evangelical organization that focuses specifically on the conversion of Jews to Christianity. Its members consider themselves to be Jews – either as defined by Jewish law, or as according to the view of Jews for Jesus. Jews for Jesus defines “Jewish” in terms of parentage and as a birthright, regardless of religious belief.[3] The identification of Jews for Jesus as a Jewish organization is overwhelmingly rejected by Jewish religious denominations[4][5] and secular Jewish groups[6][7] due to the Christian beliefs of its members. The group's evangelical activities have garnered mixed reactions from other Christian individuals and organizations.[8][9]
