Jewish Missionaries?

Have you ever been accosted by a missionary? Annoying aren't they? Ever console yourself with the thought that at least Jews don't missionize? Well, think again!

There are Jews who have bought into the idea that our mission to be a "light to the nations" requires us to go out and beat the bushes looking for "Jewish souls trapped in gentile bodies." Or does it mean we must bring the "gospel" of Noahidism to the nations? I'm not sure these guys have even made up their minds, but Rabbi Sholom Gold makes a brave and heroic attempt to set them straight, without much luck I'm afraid. (Starts at the midpoint of the program.)
