This chapter discusses the three main reasons why Jews are attracted to Christian Science: physical, social, and spiritual. Jews initially turned to Christian Science due to its promise of health, peace, and comfort. Others were attracted to the possibility of social elevation. However, most affiliated themselves with the Christian Science Church for spiritual guidance.
