Send Me Ministry
History of Chosen People Ministries in Poland
For centuries, Poland was central to European Jewish life and learning. Several prominent rabbinic academies were based in Poland. Between the world wars, many thousands of Jewish people put their faith in Jesus. The Nazis, however, decimated Poland’s Jewish population. Even after the war ended, pogroms broke out across the country. To this day, fewer than 10,000 Jewish people live in Poland.
Our partner ministry in Poland, Send Me Ministry, began in 2003 to continue the work of the Foundation for Humanitarian Aid Chevra, an organization focused on helping the sick, Holocaust survivors, widows, orphans, and the poor in the former Soviet Union. Activities have included distributing food parcels, warm clothing, and medicine.
Send Me Ministry works closely with our staff in Israel. Together, they organize Bible camps in Ostróda (a town in northeast Poland) for Holocaust survivors and youth from Israel. They also teach in Polish churches on “Is the church responsible for the Jewish nation?” and “Jesus in the biblical festivals.” Recently, our ministry partners in Poland have been hard at work assisting Ukrainian refugees. Since the beginning of May 2022, Send Me Ministry has been delivering humanitarian aid to East Ukraine. Send Me Ministry supplies people on the war front with the most necessary items: food, medicine, warm clothes, and wood and gas stoves.
