One of the best ways to be spiritually encouraged as a Christian is to see what God is doing in today’s diverse Jewish community. That’s the focus of our Jews for Jesus Newsletter, written for all Christians whether Jewish or Gentile. Each month you’ll read a message from David Brickner, executive director of Jews for Jesus. You’ll also find reports from our staff around the world, prayer requests, teaching charts and articles…and what would our newsletter be without a cartoon every month?

It’s only human to focus on our problems, of course. But no matter what problems we may be facing, we still have so many reasons to thank God.
With the World Series coming up, some might wonder if by “triple play” I mean that most rare event that makes baseball fans cheer ecstatically. I am an avid fan, but I’m actually referring to a Jewish triple play—because it’s rare that all three of the Fall Feasts of Israel occur in the month of October. Don’t worry, I’m not going to pronounce the end of the world… though there is plenty of prophetic significance to these feasts.
One of my favorite Bible ?stories is the unlikely tale of two lives unexpectedly entwined through terrible tragedy and profound desperation. It’s a story of surprising twists and transforming faith, and you’ll find it in 2 Kings, chapter 5. The story opens with Naaman, commander of the Syrian army, and a young Israeli servant.
This month many Jewish people will join in mourning over an especially tragic date. According to Jewish tradition,Tisha b’Av—or the ninth day of the month of Av—is the date of destruction for both the first and second temples in Jerusalem.
Do you know that even today, some scorn Christianity because we are required to forgive our enemies? They just don’t realize that apart from Jesus, we are all enemies of God!
I recently asked our Jews for Jesus leadership team to be intentional in finding ways to encourage one another, recognizing that we live in an age of cynicism.
