Reader comment on item: The Orthodox Future of Judaism

Would Mr. Pipes comment on Messianic Judaism? ...What is most interesting, more and more Christians are looking to discover the roots of their faith which is in Judaism, the result is to brings Jews and Gentiles together in Messianic Judaism. One of the largest Messianic congregations in Texas (possibly the U.S) is Baruch Ha Shem in Dallas. In addition, there are at least 5 or 6 smaller Messianic congregations in Dallas County -- something that was unheard of 15 years ago. It is unfortunate that Orthodox or Reformed Jews do not consider Messianic Jews as "Jews" even though many of them are the children of Holocaust survivors. Strangely the one thing that still brings them together is anti-Semitism as when Barch Ha Shem in Dallas had neo nazis appear on a Saturday morning with AK-14's and shoot into the building, or recently when the synagogue was spray painted with swastikas and slogans like "death to the Jews, kill the Jews."

Thank you in advance for perhaps doing an investigative report on Messianic Judaism.
