I would like to remind you that a very generous supporter of Chosen People Ministries is willing to match your gift for the renovation of the building by adding 50% to whatever you give.
We have a unique opportunity right now for your gift to be increased through this match. If you give $10, it will become $15! A gift of $1,000 becomes $1,500 for the completion of the building - and $5,000 turns into $7,500!
Whether you designate your gift for the Brooklyn building, the Isaiah 53 campaign or a missionary you support or know personally - we value and appreciate every gift, no matter what the size, because each and every gift will help do the Lord's work!
Thank you for being our partner in reaching the Jewish people!
Your brother in Him,
Mitch Glaser, President

SEEKING MEANING IN THE SCRIPTURES
Mitch Forman, who leads our work in Boston, reports that the Messianic High Holy Days services are always very well attended by not-yet-believing family members—and this year was no exception. Aaron,* a young man who married the daughter of one of the congregants, has come to various events over the years and has developed a good relationship with Mitch, who reports, “This year, I gave a message from the Book of Revelation, and Aaron raced up to me right after the services. Smiling, he said that he has been reading the Book of Revelation, and this led to our first discussion about deeper things in life. He agreed to meet with me and look further into the Bible.” Please pray that Aaron will come to faith in Messiah.
Chosen People Ministries Israel staff member Neriyah A. is very sick at this time. Neriyah, originally from the former Soviet Union, immigrated to Israel as a child and became a believer as a young man. The life of this servant of Messiah is threatened by a rare chronic kidney disease. Seven years ago, he received a donated kidney from a friend of Chosen People Ministries. The story was a great witness to hundreds of people throughout the whole process. Recently, Neriyah’s transplant stopped functioning and he was hospitalized in serious condition with a high fever and very high blood pressure. Please pray for Neriyah, his wife Anna and their six children.
I pray that you will have a wonderful time with your family and friends as you celebrate the goodness of the Lord. I know I speak for our staff when I say that without your prayers and support, we could not do the work we love among the people we love. So THANK YOU from the entire Chosen People Ministries staff serving in thirteen countries and in more than a dozen cities across the United States.
Update on the Brooklyn Center
As you may know from reading The Chosen People newsletter, my heart breaks for Jewish people everywhere— but my deepest personal burden is for the more than three-quarters of a million Jewish people living in Brooklyn—the “Jerusalem of the West!”
May I give you a quick update on the progress of our Brooklyn Messianic Center in the heart of Orthodox Jewish Brooklyn? Once the facility is renovated, I know that it is going to revolutionize our ministries in the midst of the largest concentration of Jewish people outside of Israel!
