It is a joy to announce that on January 5, 2008, Rebekah Wertheim and Toby Weiss were wed. Rebekah’s parents, Steve and Janie-sue, have figured prominently in our ministry almost since the beginning, and Rebekah has also involved herself in our ministry. Toby comes to us from the UK, has participated in our evangelistic campaigns, and currently heads our IT department. Click here to see the bride and groom.

It is with sadness, yet joy, that we announce the release of Jan Cohen into God’s presence on December 6, 2007. Steve and Jan Cohen served with Jews for Jesus for 20 years before Steve began his ministry “Apple of His Eye” in 1996. Jan had been struggling for many years with Huntington’s Chorea. The Cohen’s eldest son, Micah, is part of our Chicago branch. He has been on a leave of absence since August so that he and his family could be a help to Steve and Jan. Micah and his family plan to return to Chicago in March. Please keep the entire family in your prayers. While her loved ones rejoice over the end of her suffering and the beginning of her endless joy, Jan Cohen will be missed by all who knew her.
