Shoshannah Weinisch serves as a missionary alongside Stewart, her husband of 34 years. They serve on the Greater New York Team, a part of the NYC branch of Jews for Jesus.
Shoshannah was raised in a traditional Jewish home and came to faith in 1980 through the ministry of Jews for Jesus. Shortly after coming to faith, she answered a call to share the gospel with the “lost sheep of the house of Israel.”
Shoshannah has a passion for the salvation and discipleship of Jewish women. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, Shoshannah has been encouraged to see God at work in the lives of those to whom she has been extending ministry. She says, “This has been a unique season, as I have witnessed the salvation of a number of Jewish women and spiritual growth in new believers.”
Stewart and Shoshannah have two adult children: Melissa, who lives in San Francisco and is in full-time ministry, and Jonathan, who lives in Durham, NC, and is a science writer.
