Jess Bernstein was born in Brooklyn, NY and grew up in Miami, FL. Following high school Jess joined the US Navy. During and following his service, Jess came into contact with many “Born Again Missionaries” who attempted to convert him. “I knew nothing about the Jewish faith that would help me refute what they were saying.” He met Aaron Schwarzbaum and began to learn and observe. Now married with six children and fully observant Jess uses his common sense approach and street smarts to combat missionary and cult programs in the New York area.
