Jews for Jesus apologized to Jewish comedian Jackie Mason in order to settle a lawsuit. The group had distributed a pamphlet over the summer that featured a caricature of Mason and the words: “Jackie Mason … A Jew for Jesus!?” Mason, who is not a Jew for Jesus, sued for $2 million. In federal court Tuesday, Mason accepted an apology instead, along with a promise from Jews for Jesus not to distribute the pamphlet again.
