When is it okay to share your faith in Jesus? Are there prerequisites? What about earning the right to speak into people’s lives? These are great questions, and we’ve given them alot of thought. Please take a few minutes to check out our point of view.
Unpacking some of David’s article, Dare to Hope, what do we do when we’re caught in a hateful circumstance?
Don’t be discouraged if you find yourself swimming against the tide. Here’s why.
David’s article talks about what we can and can’t know about the future – and one of the things we can know is that we will face suffering and death. Yet his article is hopeful because it says that in Jesus, we can know that God’s promises are true and our ultimate future is brighter […]
In Kata’s article “Together as One,” a volunteer who did not speak Hungarian not only brought a Jewish woman to speak to Kata during this year’s Budapest campaign, but she also remained and prayed during the entire conversation … and as a result, got to see this woman pray to receive Jesus. In “Bits from […]
Are you overlooking the chance to see a Jewish relative or friend come to faith in Jesus? In this month’s “Bits from the Branches,” you can read about how Staci came to faith. We were able to put Staci in touch with one of our missionaries because another missionary learned about her from her […]
It’s encouraging to read how God has worked in other people’s lives, but is there a message for you as well? We hope your answer is yes! For example, did you read Lisa’s story or watch her journey of faith video? Did you notice how she talked about the “parade of Christians” that were […]
These two words may sound similar but how we affect others when we are judicious could not be more different than how we affect them when we are judgmental. Who wouldn’t want a reputation for being judicious? Wouldn’t you? On the other hand, I don’t think anyone sets out to be judgmental. Now sometimes a […]
There is a kind of reverse—or maybe I should say perverse—resurrection whereby we sometimes “bring back” that which is better left dead and buried: decaying desires, rotten self-righteousness (or its evil twin, self-loathing), resentments, all kinds of thoughts or attitudes that we once put to death. For whatever momentary satisfaction it may bring us, in […]
The Unlikely Story of Moishe Rosen and the Founding of Jews for Jesus Since the heart-wrenching session a year earlier with the elder Rosens, Moishe and Ceil had honored Ben’s edict that they have no direct contact with them. They had, however, made it possible for Moishe’s brother Don to take [their daughter] Lyn to […]
from the soon-to-be-published biography of Moishe Rosen Over the hum of an old air conditioner and the muted yet audible din of street traffic and sirens, a loud voice burst from the other side of a closed office door. The words were muffled, but the tone was unmistakable. Raising a worried eyebrow, Susan Perlman winced […]
My father once said something to the effect of, “If we are doing all the same things to proclaim the gospel ten years from now, we will be obsolete.” Maybe that’s why I’ve been an unabashed fan and supporter of our Massah program since the beginning. While the gospel message never changes, opportunities to communicate […]
Editor’s note: At the time of this writing, the manuscript is under consideration by a Christian publishing house but we hope you will keep praying that if this is not the right door” God will guide us in the direction we should go. From Moishe’s high school days… “When I was with Ceil, I would […]
It was still foggy, but Moishe could see the halo of lights on the bridge, forming a graceful outline of the suspension cables. I’ll get to see the bridge itself on the way back, he thought, but for now I better concentrate on getting to the seminary. The commute [went] much more quickly than he’d […]
Hey Rosen, where you going?” “It’s my lunch hour,” Moishe explained, still on his way out [of Gart’s sporting goods store where he worked]. “No it’s not,” was the retort. “We’re too busy; we need you to cover.” He punctuated his demand with some rather colorful language. Moishe liked and respected three of the four […]
Moishe Rosen was a dreamer. One of his dreams was for the entire Jews for Jesus staff to become fluent in Hebrew in preparation for a big moving of the Holy Spirit in the Land of Israel. Similarly, he instructed all Jews for Jesus missionaries to keep a current passport so that we can be […]
We wanted to take a moment to thank those missions-minded moms of grown children. Thank you for helping your sons and daughters to understand the importance of evangelism, and particularly Jewish evangelism. So often, our friends begin letters to us with words like, “My mother always taught me to love the Jewish people, and she […]
Since Moishe wrote the cover article for this month’s newsletter, I hope you don’t mind if I take the column usually reserved for Moishe’s Musings.” I wanted to write to you, not so much as the Jews for Jesus Newsletter editor, but as Moishe’s daughter. I think Moishe was pleased that David Brickner asked him […]
