Jews and Others for Jesus
March 2, 2012

Did you know that Jews for Jesus has led five to ten times as many non-Jews to faith in Christ as Jews?  It may be one of our best-kept secrets (more like a little-known fact since we really aren’t trying to keep it a secret.)  During a recent Jews for Jesus street witnessing campaign in […]

A Transformed Celebration
Author: Nancy Cochran

As a child, I was always envious of my next-door neighbor who got to celebrate Christmas. Being Jewish, I had my own holiday, Hanukkah, but the gentile holiday seemed so much bigger, so much better. I did not consider the meaning of either day, only the outward trappings, and my festivity did not measure up. […]

Why I, a German, Love the Jewish People
May 1, 2001

Love often begins with a discovery. We discover someone to whom we feel deeply drawn and who then inspires our devotion. My love for my Jewish brothers and sisters started with a discovery. Discovery and an empty chair. I carefully balanced the tray of food in my hand, trying desperately to avoid spilling its contents […]

Rejoicing in the Lord
May 1, 1991
Author: Moishe Rosen

Sometimes I think that Jewish believers in Christ enjoy things more than other Christians who are not Jewish. I must admit that this is a biased, stereotyped opinion on my part.
