Jewish leaders respond to the Southern Baptist Conventions release of a booklet instructing its followers to "share the gospel with Jewish people," and to pray for their Jewish brethren on each of the ten days of repentance between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. They discuss the booklet and Christian efforts to evangelize Jews in light of CLAL's core message of pluralism.
