There were fake chasidim in Boro Park as actors, now in Chicago, they are missionaries.
There are several instances in the past several years where Christian evangelical/Yidden for Yushka types have shown up in frum neighborhoods wearing Yeshivish/Chassidish lvush and engaging in low key missionary activity. The most gullible are recent BTs but others have fallen for this scam as well. There is a separate news story on YWN today providing more details on the Chicago case. Its totally legal from a civil law perspective but obviously poses real risks
There are also fake Chabad in the coffee room engaging in low key missionary activity….watch out. The most gullible are recent BTs but others have fallen for this scam as well.
RG, Are you talking about yourself?
