I can't upload the files that I have, they are all in PDF. I will provide the information on where other people can find them if they want to know the truth. Some of it is just nothing really, only talking about church affliations, but the quotes at the end of some of the articles are interesting little jabs to me.
The most damaging one is The Foibles of Abba August 15, 1982 in Newsday:
This article is incomplete, but the full article can be found through a google search of Jack hickman, I think the same guy has the full article on picasaweb under the the name sonofwalker.
NY Times, Dec 14, 1975, Charismatics are alive and well on the Island. Its not just about JH, but other preachers on LI that were considered controversial.
NY Times, Nov 7, 1977: 2 LI Churches hold Christian and Jewish Services. If you were in it at all, then this is basically about how they crossed over to being Jewish
NY times, Feb 5, 1987, Accused Churches: again about the dissolve of St john's into Shoresh Yishai. My favorite part is the end where Don Smestad is quoted as saying: anything Pastor Hickman says I would just put quotation marks behind."
Present Tense, The Magazine of World Jewish Affairs, Summer 1977, Vol 4, Num 4, published by the american jewish committee: Onward (hebrew) Christian soldiers: they're out to get your kids.
**I really liked this one, it took the jewish perspective on how the original torah and jewish ancestry was being perverted, and ends with a special box on what someone (the writer) thought of a service they witnessed at St. John's.

FOLLOW-UP ON THE NEWS; Church in Conflict
By Richard Haitch
New york times, Published: September 18, 1983
In November 1977 they were front- page news - two Lutheran churches on Long Island that were using Hebrew liturgy in their Sunday morning services and, as a result, were threatened with suspension by the American Lutheran Church.
The churches were St. John's of North Massapequa, led then by the Rev. Jack W. Hickman and the Rev. John W. Hove, and Christ Church of East Meadow, led by the Rev. Donald L. Smestad.
All three ministers had attended the Lutheran Theological Seminary in St. Paul.
Where are they all today? The two Lutheran congregations no longer exist, having been dropped by the American Lutheran Church in April 1978. The three ministers have been unfrocked as Lutherans. The Christ Church building has been sold to an independent Christian group, the New Covenant Church. At St. John's the traditional cross has been removed, the building remodeled as a synagogue and a new congregation, Shoresh Yishai, has been formed, led by the three former Lutheran clerics. Last week, on the eve of Yom Kippur, which Shoresh Yishai observed, Mr. Hickman explained that the congregation's name means ''the Holy Congregation of the Root of Jesse.'' The Root of Jesse, he said, is Jesus, who ''we believe will be the Messiah of Israel'' but who has not yet fulfilled that role. Mr. Hickman says Shoresh Yishai meets for services ''always on Monday'' but ''never on Sunday.''
Shoresh Yishai Cult
From "Hedda Linked to Kid-beating Cult," the New York Post, December 2, 1987, p. 14.
New York police are investigating reports that Joel Steinberg and his live-in lover, Hedda Nussbaum, were members of Shoresh Yishai, a Long Island-based cult that advocated strict discipline of children. The pair are accused of beating to death their "adoptive daughter," Lisa, in 1987. Their lawyer said the reports of cult involvement were false.
Law enforcement sources said they found "cult-like things" in the couple's Greenwich Village apartment and are questioning former members of the group. One ex-member recalled seeing Nussbaum at meetings as far back as 1979.
Shoresh Yishai, led by Jack Hickman, once claimed more than 2,000 members who had transformed themselves from traditional Christians to Orthodox-style Jews who believed in Jesus. Many members left the group in 1982 when they learned Hickman was homosexual. More than 50 members still exist on Long Island, according to police.
Former members have reported several cases of men being beaten and humiliated by sect leaders. One former member said she had heard of bizarre sexual incidents involving children, and reported that boys were taken into a separate room to pray and told to unzip their pants because "prayer is sexually arousing."

There's also another where Jack went to a trial for a couple that didn't want to have their children get social security cards that can be found through web search.
