Sharing art & Yeshua
Eli Birnbaum reports, “We hosted another art gallery at the Moishe Rosen Center here in Florintin: ‘India in the Eyes of the Traveler’ was a collection of the work of 15 photographers and one sketch artist. We opened our doors and hosted an event that any India lover would enjoy.
“One of the photographers had been doing research on the concept of the Messiah for an art project. It was a very interesting interaction as we explained our belief that the Messiah has already come and how He, Yeshua, has changed our lives. Our hope and faith in Him are forever shaping our actions. We gave her a Y’shua book and we hope to hear more from her as she continues to discover what the Messiah was supposed to accomplish and how this was to affect the world. She wants to hold her final project exhibition about Messiah here at the Moishe Rosen Center!
“One by one, the photographers approached us to let us know how honored and grateful they were to have their work shown in such an exhibition, and they also wanted to know more about the place.
“In addition to enjoying the exhbition, visitors were invited to be photographed with a setting familiar to anyone who’s traveled in India. The back of a bus! It was my concept, my wife Shoshana created the poster and our maintenance man did the cardboard cutout. Teamwork! As you can see in the gallery below, people had a lot of fun with it.
“During the 4 days that the gallery was open, 201 people came through our doors. Of them, 177 were Jewish people who do not yet believe in Jesus. We had a total of 30 visits with Jewish unbelievers (extended conversations in which we explained why we believe Yeshua is the Messiah), in addition to some amount of gospel interaction with almost everyone that came. We ended our time with a concert from an upcoming artist who wrote his entire album while traveling in India.
“Please pray for the exhibitors as well as those who came to see the exhibit at the Moishe Rosen Center, that they will return to hear more about Yeshua.”
