Miri Borok was born in Russia and grew up in a believing family. Her parents came to faith when she was a baby. At age five, she immigrated to Israel with her family and moved to the small city of Nazareth Illit in the north region of Israel. Her family soon joined a local Messianic congregation, where they are still members. Being an immigrant was difficult and she often felt like an outsider. By age 15, she realized that she did not share the relationship that her parents had with the Lord, and she decided to seek Yeshua (Jesus) for herself. After coming to faith, God restored her confidence and gave her a new identity in Him. She and her friends even began a prayer group at school.
Toward the end of her mandatory military service, Miri heard about Jews for Jesus’ Massah (journey) program, in which a team of young believers travel to India and South America to meet and share their faith with Israeli travelers. That year, she was one of the first team members to sign up, and she helped lead a team the following year.
Since 2016, Miri has served on our youth and young adult missionary team at the Moishe Rosen Center, where she ministers at a weekly children’s club, an inter-congregational youth group, and a Bible study for soldiers. She loves building personal connections with those she serves and inspiring them in their walk of faith. Miri is married to Daniel Borok.
