Eli Birnbaum came to faith in Jesus at a very young age, as his Jewish believing father was a pastor. When he was seven, his family moved to Israel. Although he was indifferent toward his faith in his early teens, a summer camp he attended in his later teen years rekindled his passion for God. He returned to school, started sharing his faith with his friends, and soon became known as “the missionary.” Now he serves as a Young Adult minister with Jews for Jesus in Israel. In 2012, he received his bachelor’s degree at Ramat Gan College. Eli is married to a Jewish believer, Shoshana who also serves on our staff.
We are charter members of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA), a Christian watchdog group. This group requires us to comply with rigorous standards of reporting and auditing. As the old Hebrew National hot dog slogan used to say, "We answer to a higher authority."
88% of the money that supports Jewish Evangelism comes from donors like you.
Jews for Jesus is a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organization. We trust God for the funding of Jews for Jesus, and He has provided through caring Christians. Each missionary raises his or her own support. We ask our Christian friends to support their local churches first. Then we ask people to prayerfully consider giving to our ministry as well. We welcome the support of all Christians, though we particularly appreciate those who include our ministry in their regular missions giving.
