‘we Never Lost It’

The national Christian evangelical bumper sticker campaign with the slogan “I have found it” has been countered with the Jewish response of “We never lost it! for 3289 years” bumper sticker. The Jewish stickers are being distributed here, free, by the Chabad House on Main Street as part of the national Lubavitch campaign, it was reported in this week’s Buffalo Jewish Review.

The Jewish stickers are black and yellow, the same colors as the evangelical ones, and the words “We never lost it,” are printed inside a Torah scroll. The phrase, “for 3289 years,” below the scroll, indicates how long ago the Jews received the Torah on Mt. Sinai. David Lazerson, assistant student program director of Chabad House, said these stickers are intended as a thought-provoker for Jews, not an attack on Christians, according to the Review.
