Michael Sischy

Branch Leader

Dr. Michael Sischy qualified as a General Medical Practitioner from the University of the Witwatersrand in 1993. He joined Jews for Jesus in January 1999 after being active in the state and private health care sectors for five years. Michael comes from a traditional Orthodox Jewish background. His mother’s death from colon cancer in 1990 started him on a search for answers to life’s tough questions, and in 1994 he found the answers in Y’shua. Michael has two sons, Eliyah and Ariel.

Aden Friedman

Aden Friedman

Missionary

Aden joined Jews for Jesus in 2014 and was commissioned as a misionary in 2017.

Aden Friedman was born in Johannesburg, South Africa to an orthodox Jewish family, where they were very involved in the Chabad community. In 1998 Aden was accepted to study at a Yeshiva in Hadera Israel. In 2010 Aden met Cara, a believer in Yeshua (Jesus) and through her family he realized that Yeshua was the Messiah of the Jewish people and the whole world.

After giving his life to Yeshua, Aden felt called to share his faith with his Jewish people. In 2014, he and Cara were married, and Aden joined Jews for Jesus in South Africa later that year. In 2017 Aden authored My Yiddishe Mama, a Jewish heritage cookbook for both secular and orthodox Jewish families in Johannesburg. In 2021, Aden and Cara had their first child, Levi Ezra, born in Jerusalem. Aden continues to serve with Jews for Jesus in Johannesburg.
