Letter from Lon Solomon

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 commitment to the mission of Jews for Jesus. There is a love for the Jewish people that permeates all that the staff of Jews for Jesus does — a love that is genuine and passionate. Theirs is not a job” but a “labor of love.”

I have also been deeply impressed with the Board of Directors of Jews for Jesus. I have always found them to be men and women of authenticity, godly behavior and impeccable integrity. They have always exhibited a deep concern for the welfare of the staff and a sincere generosity in the treatment of the staff. I am honored to say that I am a member of this Board.

Over the past 16 years, I have watched as God has blessed and used Jews for Jesus for His glory. I attribute this, in large measure, to the leadership of Moishe Rosen. Moishe is a man of principle. I have seen him again and again stand on principle, even when expedience would have been easier and more profitable for him personally. Moishe has single-handedly shaped the soul of Jews for Jesus into the great missionary organization that it is today. In addition, he has mentored countless men and women who are actively serving the Lord in Jewish evangelism today. Beyond this, he has inspired countless others simply by his personal example and fearless courage. God’s blessing has been on Jews for Jesus as an organization largely because God’s blessing has been on Moishe Rosen as a person.

No organization, staff or leader is perfect. Jews for Jesus certainly has its weaknesses like any organization does. But I believe that it is the most cutting-edge Jewish mission in the world today and that it is being used greatly by God. I consider it a privilege to be a small part of this great work for God.
