Branch Leader, Missionary
Kata Tar was born in Hungary, Dunaújváros in the time of Communism. She is single, yet she has a big family. She has got 3 brothers and one sister, 7 nephews and 5 nieces. Her mother is Jewish. Both she and her father are alive but do not know the Lord yet. Kata got saved in 1988 through the witness of her Gentile friends. She was baptized in a Protestant church where she worshipped for 8 years. Then she became a missionary with a Scottish mission (Messianic Servant Ministries), and took part in founding a new Messianic Jewish congregation in Budapest called Menora. She served as an elder there for 7 years. (1996-2003) She helped starting a new branch of the Holland based Christians for Israel in Hungary and served with them for 2 years (2008-2010) Kata has got 17 years of teaching experience at elementary and high schools. She has taught English, Hungarian and Russian. Before she joined Jews for Jesus she taught English at the school of the Jewish community in Budapest. While in Budapest she played the guitar in a Klezmer band called Klezmeresz. She also plays the recorder and enjoys glass painting and other crafts. During the years of her teaching and playing in the Klezmer band she developed many friendships with Jewish people and shared the Gospel with a few of them. Her hope is that serving with Jews for Jesus will open a much wider door of opportunity for her to reach her fellow Hungarian Jews for Jesus.

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.
