Stewart Weinisch

Stewart Weinisch New York


Stewart Weinisch was born and raised in the Bronx in New York. It was during his bar mitzvah, in front of the Torah ark (where the Torah scrolls are kept in the synagogue), that Stewart made this promise to God: “Someday I’m going to find You.” In 1977, at the age of 19, Stewart began reading Messianic prophecies and became convinced that Jesus was the promised Jewish Messiah.

In 1983, after completing a Bible education, Stewart returned to New York City to bring the gospel to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. It was during his tenure In NYC that Stewart met Shoshannah, his wife of 36 years. Stewart and Shoshannah have two adult children: Melissa and Jonathan. Together, Stewart and Shoshannah have served in Messianic congregations and Jewish missions for over 40 years.

Stewart has a sense of urgency to proclaim the gospel to all people. He says, “Since Shoshannah and I have been on staff with Jews for Jesus (2009), we have been amazed at the number of Jewish and non-Jewish people we have seen respond to the gospel.” Stewart is passionate about making disciples. He is dedicated to investing in younger believers and coming alongside new missionaries to better equip them to proclaim the gospel to future generations.
