An innocent-looking handwritten letter that arrived at a Crown Heights home turned out to be an elaborate missionary ruse.
The full page letter was entirely handwritten, and gave the impression of a mailing of personal nature, even beginning with the addressee’s personal name and a return address.
When he began reading the letter, however, the resident was shocked to see that it was a missionary ruse, speaking of the Christian view on prophets and G-d, and encouraging the reader to visit a website of an evangelical Missionary group.
“I actually received two letters, one addressed to me, and one addressed to a previous resident at this address,” the individual who received the letter told Anash.org. “It seems like they are making a concentrated effort to reach Jews in Crown Heights.”
He said that he is turning to Anash.org so Crown Heights residents should watch out for these innocent-looking envelopes and discard of them as soon as they arrive.
