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.
