Busted by the New York Times II

I finally got the latest issue of The Jewish Observer. In it, there is a long letter by R. Yechiel Eckstein disputing an article in the previous issue that strongly took him to task for, among other things, providing financial support for organizations in Israel that missionize to Jews and allowing his Christian contributors to contact recipients of their largesse and missionize to them. R. Eckstein disputed all of these charges and strongly took the author and the magazine to task for its lack of journalistic integrity in investigating and reporting on this subject. The author responded with a comprehensive, point-by-point defense of her article, relying on published and publicly available material.

This is not a good week for the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews.
