On February 1, 2003 The Houston Chronicle reported that "[in Houston], as in other American cities, Jews are taking steps to thwart Christian missionaries targeting them. In Houston, they also are girding for an upcoming Jews for Jesus campaign aimed at the city's Jewish community... The Jews for Jesus campaign in 2004 or 2005 will be 'an all-out intensive effort to make the Messianicship of Jesus an unavoidable issue to the Jews of Houston,' said Susan Perlman, a San Francisco-based founder of Jews for Jesus... The group targeted Los Angeles last month and will bring its 'Behold Your God' campaign to Seattle, Cleveland, Dallas and West Palm Beach, Fla., later this year. The city campaigns range from two to four weeks and include billboards, street evangelism, door-to-door visitation and Jewish gospel music concerts."
