This web page is one way we are celebrating ministry for the Lord under the banner of Jews for Jesus. We started with a handful of Jewish believers sharing their faith in Jesus on the campuses and streets of the San Francisco Bay Area in the early 70s. Today, Jews for Jesus is an international ministry with a staff of 214 spread out over eleven countries and twenty cities. Since we started, over 800 people have faithfully served on our staff and have helped to make the messiahship of Jesus an unavoidable issue to millions of individuals. And together, we rejoice over what God has done!

Letter from Raymond C. Ortlund, Jr.
December 1, 2003
Author: Jews for Jesus

My exposure to Jews for Jesus goes back to 1973, and I have known their founder, Moishe Rosen, since the early 1960s. Sadly (to me), I cannot take a public stand in favor of every organization identifying itself with Jesus. But Jews for Jesus is #1 on my list of missions worthy of respect, trust […]

Letter from Josh and Rosemary
Author: Jews for Jesus

We had been married for two years when we joined the Liberated Wailing Wall. We were on the road for almost three years (Jan. 1999-October 2002) with two different teams. When we started out, we only planned to be on the team for 18-months, which was a pretty serious commitment. We didn’t know too much […]

Letter from Leighton Ford
Author: Leighton Ford

The first followers of Jesus were all Jews — women and men so touched and changed by him that they had to tell their friends and neighbors — yes, and their religious and political leaders — about him. When they were ordered to stop they said, We can’t help telling what we’ve seen and heard.” […]

As a former staff member of Jews for Jesus, I want to take a moment to say how much my life has been enriched because of the time I spent with them. First of all, I was a gentile, on administrative staff. The missionaries on the Jews for Jesus staff must be a Jewish believer […]

It has been my privilege to be associated with Jews for Jesus since 1987 as a member of their Board of Directors. In that time, I have had the opportunity to witness up-close the inner workings of this missionary organization to Jewish people. I have found the staff to be exemplary in their dedication and […]

My experience with Jews for Jesus is one for which I am grateful. I was introduced to Jews for Jesus in 1976, when I was 20 years old and living in the Chicago area. I had been a Believer for about a year. I started volunteering with the Chicago branch, especially by handing out broadsides […]

Dear friends and fellow laborers with Jews for Jesus: It hardly seems possible that we are approaching our thirtieth year anniversary as an organization. But then Jews for Jesus has been more than an organization to some of us. I wanted to take a moment and share some brief reflections with some of you who […]

Author: Murray Tilles

My name is Murray Tilles. I became a believer in 1978 while a student at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. I was raised in a very religious Jewish home. Needless to say, after accepting Jesus as Messiah, my parents were not overjoyed, in fact, they became extremely angry and tried desperately to […]

Author: Joseph Stowell

I am convinced that sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with our Jewish friends is of utmost importance in God’s plan for the world — and all the more as we draw closer to the return of Christ. By supporting Jews for Jesus, you are doing that in one of the most effective ways possible. […]

Dear Friends, As I write it is almost ten years to the day that a tired but very excited family disembarked from the jumbo jet that had carried them from the United Kingdom to begin a new life in San Francisco. Little did we know as we walked up the jetway that there to greet […]

Letter from David and Chava Baker
Author: David Baker

My wife Chava and I served with Jews for Jesus in San Francisco and Los Angeles during the late 70’s and early 80’s. We worked both in administrative and branch missionary capacities. My fondest memories were as a volunteer in the LA branch. I was a brand new Christian when I first started attending Jews […]

Letter from Dr. Jim Congdon
Author: Jim Congdon

There are two reasons why Topeka Bible Church supports Jews for Jesus. One, they have a unique calling from God. Two, they have been faithful to that calling. Perhaps their calling shouldn’t be unique. After all, the uniqueness consists in nothing more than an unabashed commitment to evangelism. Isn’t that what all missionaries and missions […]

Reflections on a Decade with Jews for Jesus My name is Glenn Harris, but I have been called a lot of other names, particularly since I am Jewish and have been a follower of Jesus for twenty-two years now. For a little over ten of those years I served on the staff of Jews for […]

When my husband, Warren Conrad, retired from the pastorate after 44 years, little did I realize how much I was going to love our next assignment, and how much I was going to learn. For a little over 5 years we had the wonderful privilege of working with Jews for Jesus in the capacity of […]

Author: J.I. Packer

Jews for Jesus is a worldwide Christian mission that was born against the background of California’s Jesus movement and has grown steadily ever since. Holding that Jesus of Nazareth — God incarnate, crucified, risen, and now reigning — is the true Messiah foretold in the Old Testament and the true fulfillment of Jewish hopes, the […]

Jennelle commuted to 60 Haight Street for eight and one-half years, first serving as secretary to office manager Jeff Fritz, and then as Susan Perlman’s assistant. As a secretary, Jennelle attended around 20 meetings of the […]

Letter from John H. Orme
Author: John Orme

The New Testament and the Gospels in particular make it clear that Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled the prophecies of the Hebrew Bible both as to his person and his activities. Indeed, it is biblical to say that Christianity is Jewish. It is, therefore, perfectly normal that Jews for Jesus have a heartfelt desire to let […]
