Jesus and Jewish Suffering: a Perspective from Paris
Author: Joshua Turnil

If one were to give a hard and honest look at the heritage of Israel’s heroes, one would be forced to concede that it is not a triumphant past. Moses, at his apogee, came down from a holy mountain experience only to be “welcomed” by collective and unmitigated disloyalty in the shadow of the infamous […]

Jesus and Jewish Suffering: an Israeli Perspective
Author: Dan Sered

Suffering is international and cross-cultural. It is something that unites all human beings, because we all experience it at one point or another. Therefore, suffering is not specifically Jewish—although in Jewish history there has been a great deal of suffering. My country, Israel, was birthed from the pain of one of humanity’s greatest experiences of […]

Book Review: Keeping My Hope
May 13, 2013

Several moments ago I read a profound, illustrated narrative that captures Holocaust history with fresh eyes and emotion. The story’s depth and the subject matter’s intensity are especially impressive because this 170-page graphic novel was entirely penned—word and drawing—by a Maryland middle schooler, Korean-American Christopher Huh. Huh sent Jews for Jesus a copy of his […]

No Place on Earth — Movie Review
April 18, 2013

Movie Review No Place on Earth (2012) PG-13 -reviewed by Arielle Rothbard Last Friday, on opening day for Janet Tobias’ No Place on Earth, I had several presuppositions upon entering the theater.

A Holocaust Remembrance Day Reflection
April 27, 2011
Author: Rich Robinson


A friend?s post on Facebook alerted me to an article which appeared April 22 on The Wall Street Journal?s web site and has since been reposted or commented upon on numerous other sites.

The article is about portrayals of Jesus in film, but the part that is most striking concerns the Holocaust and a story related by the filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille. In 1928, a Polish man by the name of William E. Wallner viewed DeMille?s movie King of Kings. He thereafter became a Lutheran pastor in Prague…

The Holocaust
January 1, 2005
Author: Jews for Jesus

People often describe the Holocaust as the climax of 2,000 years of Christian mistreatment of Jews. Some invoke the Shoah as the ultimate reason for Jews not to believe in Jesus. Jewish believer Moishe Rosen challenges that view: The phrase ‘2,000 years of history leading up to the Holocaust’ is more than a reference to […]

Jhan Moskowitz, Son of Max and Lilly Moskowitz
Author: Jews for Jesus

Some survivors do not tell their kids anything. They just don’t. Some survivors tell their kids everything. When I was a little boy, I crawled into my father’s lap and asked, What is that number on your arm?” He didn’t flinch, he told me he was in the concentration camps. He grew up outside of […]
