New York City Summer Campaign 2007

Sarah: During campaign training at Moody Bible Institute, I had to memorize our proposal statement*, reciting it over and over. I have to admit, I began feeling bored with it! But during campaign, a woman named Maureen was so moved that she burst into tears halfway through the proposal statement! That was an incredible reminder […]

A Note From David Brickner

If I can make it there I’ll make it anywhere… With all due respect to Frank Sinatra and the city of New York, I titled this article with thoughts of Chicago, where our annual summer campaign training is about to begin. Sixteen Jews for Jesus staff and volunteers are gathering at Moody Bible Institute for […]

An Open Letter to the Family of Jewish Believers in Jesus Part II

This is the second installment in a three-part series based on challenges the book of Hebrews made to Jewish believers of the first century. That wonderful New Testament epistle applies to Gentile as well as Jewish believers, and so, I hope, will my twenty-first century reflections. Last month’s article presented two admonitions: to love Yeshua […]

Author: Stephen Katz

Our month-long Annual New York City Summer Witnessing Campaign begins July 1. In order to help you pray for this month’s campaigners, we thought we’d share reflections from a couple of veteran campaigners.

Campaigner Looks Back and Ahead

Hot town, summer in the city.…” Do you think the Lovin’ Spoonful wrote that song about the Jews for Jesus Summer Witnessing Campaign in New York City? Every year we bring a team of willing workers to the Big Apple to share the Good News of Yeshua and to remind them that though New York […]

Two Sides of the Campaign Coin

The two main positions for the witnessing Campaign are campaigner and steward (we also need an experienced chef!). Campaigners do the actual work of evangelism. Stewards tend to cooking, laundry and keeping literature bags filled as well as giving prayer support. Stewards enable campaigners to focus all their energy and attention on evangelism. We’ve asked […]

A Training Lesson: It Pays to Ask!
Author: Karol Joseph

Preparing for our annual Summer Witnessing Campaigns is no easy task. After we’ve identified those Jewish believers God has raised up for the outreach and helped them raise their missionary support, there’s still the matter of training them—getting them ready for the streets. For three years I have had the privilege of training new campaigners […]

Booths in Bethesda

When I was a boy, growing up in an Orthodox Jewish home in Kansas City meant that I was a member of a very defined, closed community with distinctive rules and religious obligations. There is a clearly delineated body of Orthodox Jewish law. Under that law, certain foods are forbidden. Travel more than a specified […]

Summer Witnessing Campaign 1990

We have much cause for rejoicing about our New York City Summer Witnessing Campaign this year. We went in shorthanded; last year we had 33 campaigners, but somehow this year we only had 22. It must have been Satan who sent fiery virus-tipped darts our way, because virtually all our campaigners and our eight stewards […]

Yeshua Is God’s Light For Everyone
Author: Steve B.

I was passing out broadsides in front of a park-like setting near the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City when I saw a man leaning up against a railing. He looked about 55 years of age and seemed very troubled. I began speaking to him, and the first thing he said to me was, I’m […]

A Raisin to Believe
Author: David M.

Many come to the Big Apple and try to witness, but most traditional forms of outreach are barely even noticed as the masses hurry by. To be heard in New York City you really have to make some noise, or at least maintain a high profile. Such is the case with our Jews for Jesus […]

The Fruit of Suffering
Author: Laura Barron

At our Johannesburg Jews for Jesus Friday night fellowship we were studying the book of Job. It is not easy to accept the fact that suffering could be a gift from God, and even a blessing, but something special happened at the meeting that clearly brought this lesson home to me. I had asked a […]

He that hath an ear, let him hear.” These words were spoken by Yeshua three times in the Gospel of Matthew and seven times in the book of Revelation. In Matthew 13:11-17 Jesus explained to his disciples that he taught in parables so that those with open hearts directed toward God would find truth and […]

Why Have a Campaign?
Author: Moishe Rosen

As this Newsletter reaches you, Jews for Jesus is gearing up for our 1989 Summer Witnessing Campaign. This kind of street evangelism will probably not become popular in the church because it is so difficult. Some even ask, Why a street witnessing campaign? Isn’t the ‘regular kind’ of evangelism enough?” No, it is not! We […]

Campaign Circus

My skin felt sticky, and my shirt was damp at the shoulder under the strap of the tract bag I was carrying. It was a hot, humid day in downtown Boston. There I stood on the Freedom Trail by Faneuil Hall under the burning sun distributing a tract called Tourist Tsuris. (Tsuris is a Yiddish […]
