New York City - Brooklyn
The Hilda Koser Messianic Center in Brooklyn was dedicated in October 2008. It is located in the heart of Brooklyn's one-million-strong Jewish population, which contains Jewish people of many different religious and ethnic backgrounds. Outreach activities include a Messianic Shabbat fellowship, prayer and Bible study meetings in English and Russian, English as a Second Language classes, and cultural events that invite people to become involved in the life of the Center. We pray that this Center will be a great instrument to reach Brooklyn's diverse Jewish community for Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah.
