O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
November 8, 2013
Author: Lynn McCoy

OK, I’m just going to say it. I love Christmas. I don’t have a problem, as a Jew, proclaiming that. I admit I have a Christmas tree, I love singing Christmas carols, and if you come to my house in December, you will hear Handel’s "Messiah" playing over and over again. Why do I, a…

Author: Martin Friedman

Introduction by Larry Dubin, branch leader for Jews for Jesus in Washington, D.C.

It was a hot and humid Mid-Atlantic August day when the letter from a local detention center arrived. Often I am unable to provide the kind of assistance requested in such letters. But after reading Martin Friedman’s words, I decided to meet with the chaplain of the detention center.

Being First
May 28, 2013

In 2011, during the Women’s World Cup games, we conducted a three-week evangelistic campaign in Berlin. Our team encountered many Jewish people from Berlin and as well as Jewish tourists from other countries, including Israel. We received 126 Jewish contacts. After the campaign, we began the hard work of follow-up. We started by phoning through…

Faith is a Gift of God
April 28, 2013

“How do I have faith? Am I supposed to believe in something that is unbelievable?”  Those were questions Eugene asked at the point of spiritual capitulation. Let me back up and explain. It all started more than 25 years ago. Eugene is the son of Romanian immigrants to the United States. His origins are reflected…

January 29, 2013

Last year, Carlie attended one of our Christ in the Passover presentations at a church in her area.

A Different Kind of Fitness
March 3, 2012
Author: Laura Barron

“Chag sameach!” she greeted me as I approached my locker at the gym. I smiled back and wished her the same. (The greeting, pronounced “khog sah-may-ahkh” means happy holiday.) As we chatted, Rachel (not her real name) asked me how I would be celebrating Pesach (Passover) this year. I could have simply replied that my…

Rosh Hashanah
September 8, 2011

Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) begins at sundown Sept 28. However you will not find Rosh Hashanah in the Bible, because there the holiday is referred to as the Feast of Trumpets, or Yom Teruah (pronounced “true-ah”). A couple of years ago, our executive director David Brickner wrote: … Despite the name change [from…

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…

Here are some glimpses of how God answered prayer last summer—to encourage you to pray for the evangelism taking place right now!

Bits from the Trainees
January 1, 2010

Morgan reported, “It was our usual Monday night calling time, but this week’s list, unlike previous weeks, was Jewish people who don’t yet believe. We trainees were a little on edge since we were told about how people might respond. After many wrong numbers and voicemail messages, I finally reached a woman who was willing…

A Slice of Missionary Life
September 1, 2009
Author: Lynn McCoy

Everyone has ups and downs, and last fall was like a roller coaster ride in terms of my ministry in D.C.  The week before Yom Kippur, I was happy to receive an email asking me to contact a Jewish woman named Jackie.  Her mother, a Jewish believer in Jesus, wanted us to witness to her…

Campaign leaders Dan Sered and Greg Savitt Ask Manhattan campaigner Sharon Turnil her favorite place to hand out broadsides and she’ll tell you “Bryant Park, because people are relaxed and willing to talk.” (Or as Michelle, who also favors Bryant Park put it, “People are chillin’ and willin’.”) Monte Hinojosa will tell you his favorite…

Resolutions That Guard Your Heart
September 23, 2005
Author: Susan Perlman

We don’t always know how the resolutions we make may one day guard our hearts—or even our bodies—as I discovered at the Israel in the Garden” celebration in San Francisco. It is amazing how many ways people can make their displeasure known when you are handing out gospel tracts in public, and after some 30…

I had a rather uneventful sortie at the University of Maryland, handing out one of my favorite broadsides, If Being Born hasn’t Given you Much Satisfaction, Try being Born Again.” A few days later, I was at our office doing some work, when the phone rang. I picked it up and a girl named Mary…
