‘Fake Orthodox’ couple accused of trying to convert Jews to Christianity


David Costello and Rivkah Weber look every bit a young Orthodox Jewish couple.
Costello sports a yarmulke and sidelocks and Weber dresses modestly and covers her head.
They keep kosher and never miss Sabbath at the synagogue.
But they do share one little oddity: They believe Jesus is the Messiah.
And they are not shy about spreading their gospel, according to angry members of the Jewish community who say the couple are really Christian infiltrators fishing for converts.
Their presence has rocked synagogues in Brooklyn, and earlier this month in Chicago, after a visitor from New York recognized Costello from a Williamsburg shul and “outed” him.
