Yad L’Achim Releases Exciting New Publication for Jews Caught Up in Cults

The cover of Hama'amim, Yad L'Achim's latest publication, in Hebrew and Russian.

A few months ago it was revealed that the missionary Eitan Bar, a mumar known for his provocative anti-Semitic acts, had written that Yad L’Achim’s publications were succeeding in getting Jews to leave the cult.

In light of its success, Yad L’Achim decided to release an additional publication, one that is shorter and more concise, called Hama’amim (“The Believer”). As opposed to its older, most established sister publication Mechapsim (“Searching”), Hama’amim is a four-page digest.

“While Mechapsim provides readers with lengthy articles on Jewish thought, we understood that there was a need for something that sums up the key arguments against Christian cults, beliefs and deceptive tactics in a more concise way,” a Yad L’Achim official said.

The new pamphlet, with its eye-catching design, presents columns and articles on a wide array of topics. For example, there is an interview with a secular youth who came to believe in “that man” and who after a seven-year journey succeeded in leaving the cult with the help of Yad L’Achim and entering a yeshivah.

At the conclusion of the interview, the youth turns to his friends in the missionary community and movingly calls on them to make contact with the people at Yad L’Achim “who can answer you about everything. Try to talk to them and discover a new world, like I did. I finally feel whole and happy with myself.”

The digest also includes an article that exposes the lies of missionary leaders and presents proof from an ancient manuscript found in the Kumran caves showing how missionaries forged verses from the Torah and are presenting them in a distorted way to Jews.

In light of the positive feedback Yad L’achim received to Hama’amim, it rushed to translate it into Russian.

Yad L’Achim field workers say that Hama’amim was accepted with some degree of suspicion by Jews in the cults, but many nonetheless took it, promising to read the material carefully.

Two letters reached Yad L’Achim last week from Jews who had converted out but who upon seeing the publication asked for assistance in leaving the cult.
