Filling tool boxes
August 9, 2013

Each missionary trainee arrives with his/her set of skills, but none of us come fully prepared for the range of tasks expected of a Jews for Jesus missionary. I have the privilege and the pleasure of watching newer missionaries sharpen and add to their skills as they fill their "ministry tool boxes." Most recently, my […]

Comparing Evangelism to Farming
May 1, 2013

Jerry was a successful businessman whose wealth had afforded him a comfortable life in the northern suburbs of Chicago. He was also a prominent member of the Jewish community. When he was in his 70s, Jerry retired and handed over his company to his son. That’s when we met and began getting together weekly to […]

What is Broadsiding?
April 29, 2013

In Jews for Jesus we refer to handing out our gospel tracts (tri-fold, easy-to-read pamphlets) as broadsiding. But I have noticed that broadsiding has its special features in various cities. So “what is broadsiding” can depend on where one is broadsiding. For example, broadsiding in Moscow differs radically from broadsiding in Odessa. When broadsiding in […]

Passover Video in Golders Green
February 26, 2013

I was excited as I headed to Golders Green with fellow missionary Simon Lissak. We were about to engage with people in a different way and, at the same time, produce content to share on the web. How? We planned to film people as we interviewed them about Passover. Not only would we have the […]

Loyal to Whom?
September 30, 2012

My friend and colleague, Jhan Moskowitz has a one-word answer for those who ask, “What is the most difficult obstacle facing a Jewish person considering Christ?” He says, “Loyalty.” He then adds, “Loyalty is a virtue but when employed in the service of a lie, it ceases to be a virtue.” Jhan has put his […]

Coffee Evangelism
June 5, 2012
Author: Simon L.

When you think of a “cuppa” in London, is tea the first thing that comes to mind? Then it may surprise you to hear that Simon Lissak’s ministry is percolating over cups of coffee. Pray that those to whom he’s reaching out will soon have their cups overflowing—with the joy of knowing Jesus! Simon says […]

Awakening
April 6, 2012

Who are your “heroes of the faith”? One of mine is Jonathan Edwards. Edwards was a pastor in Massachusetts back in the 1700’s and is closely associated with what is called America’s First Great Awakening. Although the nature and scope of that Awakening has been debated over the years, there can be no doubt that […]

Jews for Jesus in Budapest
April 5, 2012

Did you know that Budapest has the largest indigenous Jewish population of any city in Central or Eastern Europe? About 100,000 Jewish people reside in Budapest—plus thousands of Jewish tourists come each year to visit the Neolog synagogue on Dohany Street (the largest synagogue in Europe), the Jewish museum and the former wartime ghetto—as well […]

Moishe’s Musings: On Friendship Evangelism
March 2, 2012
Author: Moishe Rosen

This article is in response to requests from readers that we continue to include Moishe’s writings following his home-going. This article originally appeared in our newsletter in November, 2000. Far be it from me to disparage any kind of evangelism. But I have noticed that in some circles, “lifestyle” or “friendship evangelism” has become a […]

Christmas Is Still a Jewish Holiday
December 1, 2011
Author: Ruth Wardell

Reprinted from Havurah (Jews for Jesus publication for Jewish believers in Jesus) It was my joy to share Yeshua with Jewish people in New York City as far back as 1946! As a missionary with the American Board of Missions to the Jews, I recall that some of our greatest times of outreach were through […]

Who is He?
August 6, 2011

The most important question ever asked is the one Yeshua put to His disciples at Caesarea: “But who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:15). The debate over this question has engaged some of the most thoughtful minds as well as engendering some of the greatest controversy in history. For years, we have been […]

Massah: a Journey in Faith
July 1, 2011

Last summer marked the fourth year of our Massah program. “Massah” means “journey” in Hebrew. Our team of twelve young adults plus four leaders gathered from all over the United States (and one from Mexico City) and journeyed to Jaffa, a city on the outskirts of Tel Aviv. We lived in a guesthouse for six […]

Christmas Warfare
December 1, 2010

It never ceases to amaze me how much fighting takes place over the celebration of Christmas. Legal battles about public displays of crèche or Christmas trees are fodder for the news media. One of the most bizarre examples was when Jewish comedian Jackie Mason made news by standing up to stores that banned employees from […]

Outside the Camp
October 1, 2010

A pastor once told me that he appreciated the ministry of Jews for Jesus but could not invite us to speak in his pulpit. He had what he felt was a good relationship with the rabbi across the street, with an annual pulpit exchange. I have an opportunity to be a witness through this pulpit […]

Moishe’s Musings on Gospel Resistance
May 6, 2010
Author: Moishe Rosen

When it comes to relationships between synagogues and churches, rabbis and pastors, it will help to understand the Jewish position. Rabbis think that it’s fine for Christian friends to be evangelical, as long as you’re not evangelistic.  In other words, it’s all right for you to believe that everyone needs Christ in order to have […]

Not a Word?
February 1, 2010

How important are words when it comes to sharing the gospel?  Many are fond of quoting St. Francis of Assisi’s famous admonition: Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.”  By this they mean the good news is best proclaimed by how we live among people. A word that is often associated […]

Israel Among the Nations Redux
November 1, 2009

British Historian Arnold J. Toynbee had a social Darwinian theory concerning the rise and inevitable fall of all nations, including Israel. In his seminal ten-volume work, A Study of History, the esteemed scholar reflected on the continuing existence of the Jewish nation despite 2000 years without a homeland. He concluded that the Jewish nation was […]

Persistent or Pushy
March 1, 2009

Have you ever felt torn between your desire to tell someone about Jesus, and a fear of being too pushy? Or maybe someone expressed interest in your beliefs, then backed away, leaving you to wonder whether or not you should pursue the subject. Most of us don’t want to be pushy any more than we […]

Don’t you love the smell of a new car, the sight of a newborn baby or the prospect of a New Year? Newness is often so appealing and can fill us with hope. Nevertheless, newness also has its drawbacks. It’s easy to be enticed by the newest improved version of one thing or another, not […]

Messianic Prophecy: Are we using it for all it’s worth?
May 15, 2008

That’s Jesus,” he admitted, flashing me a ‘you-got-me-there’ kind of grin. I had been studying Isaiah 53 with Uri, an Israeli now living in Manhattan’s trendy Upper West Side. He had just uttered the very words I had hoped to hear! Carefully, he reread the passage in Hebrew and confirmed, “There cannot be any doubt—Isaiah […]
