Gefen grew up in a believing home in Israel. When she was 14 years old, Gefen accepted Yeshua as her savior, but struggled with her faith during high school and military service. After finishing the army, she renewed her relationship with the Lord and participated in a 3 month discipleship program, where she also met her future husband Boris. In 2013, Gefen joined the staff of Jews for Jesus as part of the Youth and Young Adult Missionary team; helping to host events at the Moishe Rosen Center and to lead weekly meetings for women, youth, and soldiers. Over the last few summers, she has also been a part of training and sometimes leading our Massah teams, where groups of young messianic believers travel to India to share the gospel with Israeli backpackers. Because of her faith struggles as a young adolescent, Gefen truly has a heart to minister and disciple teenage girls, soldiers and young women.

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.
