We’re Glad You Asked…
July 1, 1990

QUESTION: In a recent Newsletter article, My Graveside Religion , your missionary Guillermo Katz said that his family did not belong to the synagogue because it was too expensive. Coming from a Protestant background, I don’t understand that. I always assumed that synagogue was just the Jewish counterpart of church. As church members we show…

The Fruit of Suffering
Author: Laura Barron

At our Johannesburg Jews for Jesus Friday night fellowship we were studying the book of Job. It is not easy to accept the fact that suffering could be a gift from God, and even a blessing, but something special happened at the meeting that clearly brought this lesson home to me. I had asked a…

Author: Art Weiner

Sometimes a vibrant newcomer really can lift the spirits of us veteran missionaries. That’s what happened to me last summer.

Love in Action
Author: Moishe Rosen

Some say that the way to win people to the Lord is to "love them to Jesus." I don’t like being aggressive. I like behaving toward others in a way that will help them like me. I would rather love people than shove them. (Of course, no one ever shoves anyone to Jesus. That shove—or…
