Author: Shayna Turner

One of the disadvantages of handing out tracts on street corners is that we don’t usually have the opportunity to meet people a second time. We’re always moving on to a different city or broadsiding” on a different street corner. Even here at our home base in San Francisco , we don’t expect to meet…

In Case You Were Wondering What We Do When We’re Not On Tour
Author: Barbara Kepp

I’m Barbara Kepp, one of the members of that joyful tribe of Wandering Jews” known as the Liberated Wailing Wall. The reason we’re joyful is that we know the Messiah of Israel, and the reason we’re wandering is that we want to introduce Him to others. Once in a while, though, we return to our…

Martha Jacobs and I were assigned to represent Jews for Jesus at a Christian convention in New Orleans . It was our hope that many believers would come to the display we set up and take our evangelistic literature to pass onto their Jewish friends and co-workers.

I Hear the Opposition… But Do They Hear Me?

"For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge." Romans 10:2 I’d heard it all before, and I suppose that as long as I’m in the ministry, I’ll hear it all again, “Jews Can’t Believe in Jesus!" So, when I was assigned to go hear Dr. Emmanuel…

Author: Zhava Glaser

Everyone else had gone to hand out tracts, but I had stayed behind to take care of some administrative work. At lunch time, I took a stroll to a nearby fried-chicken stand. I almost forgot I was still wearing the Jews for Jesus T-shirt I had planned to wear while broadsiding. As I placed my…

True and effective dialogue between the Christian and Jewish communities has often been thwarted by a kind of prejudice on the part of the Christian − not a conscious kind of prejudice, but an "innocent" kind, based on "harmless"…

Having Ears They Do Not . . .

So many people were crowding against me on the busy San Francisco street corner that I almost didn’t feel the gentle tapping on my shoulder . When I turned around, a woman asked me for a broadside, but not in the usual way. Rather, she asked me in sign language. She also used sign language…
