Rob Wertheim is a senior missionary serving with the Online Evangelism Team of Jews for Jesus. He was raised in a Conservative Jewish home in New York, the son of Holocaust survivors from Germany. While visiting his brother, Steve, in Los Angeles, he found out that Steve had come to faith in Jesus. During this time, Jews for Jesus was having a Messianic Passover Seder, which Rob attended with his brother. It was here that he heard messianic prophecies for the first time. Months later, Rob committed his life to the Lord. Rob is married to a Jewish believer, Sandy, and they have three adult children: Saul, Rose, and Josh.
He has been on staff since 1988 and meets with Jewish people seeking to know about Jesus or wanting to learn and grow in their faith. Rob participates on our website LiveChat platform, where he meets Jewish seekers as well as believers. In addition, he attends local Jewish classes, where he meets Jewish people hoping to bring a messianic testimony as opportunities arise.
