Was "Jews for Jesus" Leader Murdered?

Jhan Moskowitz, 64, was struck over the head on a lonely subway platform
in NYC September 5, 2012. The cops swept it under the carpet as a "fall."

 Moskowitz co-founded "Jews for Jesus" which converts
Jews to Christianity. Who would want this man dead?

Makow comment: There is no Wikipedia entry for Jhan Moskowitz. This speaks volumes about his "offense" and Wikipedia.

Jhan Moskowitz,  co-founder of "Jews for Jesus" really 'got' Christianity.  When he describes his own repentance experience, he proves it. His experience blended with mine.

"When I went to Israel I was an atheist," said Moskowitz, "but by the time I left, I knew that God did exist. I became a seeker. I felt God had created the universe with a purpose, and I wanted to know his purpose for my life. I found my answer in 1971 when I came to terms with God through the Messiah, Jesus.

"I realized that I wasn't a good person like I'd always thought I was, I was a weak person who had never let go of sins I relished.  Then I realized I'd wasted my life...  I realized that my life wasn't mine to do what I please with... I was deeply ashamed.

"I didn't ask for forgiveness at all, I simply said I was sorry.  In that moment my love of sins dropped, and I felt the forgiving presence of God. I realized something really did happen with Jesus and it's still been going on ever since. The night I was filled with forgiveness, I met the Messiah of Israel".

No sooner than I had discovered this man, and found dozens of hours of his sermons, I learned he died violently Sept 5th, 2012, on a NYC subway platform.

The only 'witness' was an unidentified  subway cop who said he found Moskowitz lying with blood gushing out of his skull.  He was conscious.  
The cop wrote the report that Moskowitz 'slipped and fell'.  

He arrived at the hospital in coma with a nasty brain contusion from blunt trauma. Undisclosed family members allowed him to be taken off life support within 24 hrs.  He was a robustly healthy man of 64 years old.   He probably would have lived another active 20 years at least.

I read a post by one of his converts from 40 years ago.  Moskowitz trained his people how to run in the subway if they were attacked.   It's highly suspicious that he died of blunt trauma to the head due to slipping on the steps all by himself, with no credible witnesses. 

 In one of the videos, Moskowitz spoke frankly about the cost of being ruled a 'traitor' by the Orthodox enforcers.   He said conversion is perceived as betrayal of the the group.   "We've been trained and socialized as Jewish people to be loyal to our group.  Our group is 'us' and everybody else is 'them'.  'Them' believe in Jesus, we don't.  Therefore when you become a believer in Jesus you become a 'them'.

 The real cost is giving up that association, and being considered a traitor.  And that's an expensive cost, especially considering that loyalty really is a virtue.  However, loyalty ceases to be a virtue when it's employed in the service of a lie.

He said from the convert's point of view, "It's the most Jewish thing in the world to believe in the Jewish Messiah."

In his case, I only wondered why they let him live so long.   Maybe it's because he was finally getting mainstream fame through Youtube.  I'll bet his name recognition was in an exponential upturn.  

I think if he'd been content to associate with other converts instead of confronting Orthodox rabbis on radio talk shows, he wouldn't have had that 'accident'.

His recent nemesis was Tovia Singer, founder of 'Outreach Judaism', an organization specifically to 'deprogram' Jews for Jesus converts.  A radio debate between them from 2009 is linked here.  At one point they yell over each other.   

Rabbi Singer was involved in a sleazy sex scandal a year later in 2010.

the Jews or Jesuits would have killed Jhan, because he found the Way of the Lord. Those who worship Satan HATE the LIGHT of CHRIST.

The Talmud readers hate the Lord says so.

by the way --- JESUS WAS NOT A JEW !!!!!
He was of the Tribe of JUDAH ---- and the Judahites were NOT Jews !!
they were part of the 12 tribes and ALL were called BY GOD " Israelites " -- Gen 35:10
NOBODY was called a ' jew ' until 1775 ........
Shakespeare used the word ' Iewe " in ' The Merchant..."

The King James Bible had the word ' jew ' placed in it by either the Owners of the Printing Houses [ who could do what they liked to any book ] or by the haters of Protestants and the Bible [ the black masters of rome] who paidthe printers to do their bidding ; who are stationed all about the world - it wasn't even IN the 1611 version !!!! it was placed in there BY THE J-J's and made to look ' authentic ' , like they do other things ... counterfeit / liars / forgers / etc etc...
and somehow the world's white people believe liars !!! ???

One day the Lord will remove ' the blinkers from their eyes " and that will be a great day for rejoicing !!!!

I had the opportunity to meet Dr Louis Goldberg when he was teaching in Jews for Jesus offices in New York. What a humble, loving man, always trying to help anyone, despite being a theology genius who knew more about Israel than 99% of rabbis (and pastors). He was so carefree about material possessions that he never even had a house his whole life.

The services at JfJ were beautiful and nice. One could say they are regular Baptist-like services with some Jewish songs. No cult-like schemes there. Just normal people. And great bagels !

The stories of people there were touching. Leaving Judaism, especially Orthodox Judaism, means being regarded as a traitor and losing one's family and friends. The cost is much higher than the one for non-Jews. I deeply respect the faith and sacrifice of those brothers and sisters.

I don't doubt Moskowitz was murdered. JfJ became a staple element of New York. I suggest the reading of the book "Betrayed!" by Stan Telchin for a good account of what Jews go through when they accept Jesus as Messiah.

Excellent article. One can see that converting to Christianity as a Jew, is not welcome with the "powers that control and destroy." I have just
one little story about "trying to influence the masses against the controllers.

I know I was silenced back in the early 80's by powerful people who control media. My letters to the editors in newspapers against Abortion,
were summarily wrecked and sabotaged by those that control the content of newspaper editorials, deliberately changing or leaving out parts of what I wrote to deliberately change my letters to reflect something I never wrote. I know from experience that you are not welcome to have an
opinion that goes against these "powers that be" who control all the media, government, schools, corporations, foundations, banks, military, justice, you name it, they control it.

Thank you for this post! The Synagogue of Satan wants the Jews to serve him and not God. Jesus was the Messiah that was prophesied in the Old Testament for the Jews first. He was rejected by the High Priests of Judaism because they believed in redemption through the Earthly Kingdom with its material blessings. A Heavenly Kingdom was beyond their comprehension and spirituality was reduced to ceremony observance. Satan knows that the Jews are most valuable in his quest for his Worldly Kingdom, for they are the best organizers and propagators. He has taken their Messiah Jesus from them and replaced him with a false idol of an Israel that God has not ordained or sanctioned. Remember, and I stand to be corrected, did Jesus ever preach about Israel as a nation?
