Shalom New York shares Messiah in New York City!
Thank you for supporting Chosen People Ministries in this summer’s Shalom New York! You helped us minister to Jewish people through two major evening outreach events and teams working in the heart of Manhattan and Brooklyn, which included specialized outreaches to the ultra-Orthodox and Russian Jewish communities.
Mark was among the 127 volunteers who touched the lives of [XXX] Jewish people! But he had a special goal for Shalom New York: he felt a deep calling to share Messiah with the Haredim, or “ultra-Orthodox.” Of the 15 million Jewish people in the world today, about 2 million are Haredim.
Sharing Messiah with the Haredim is challenging, both because of their suspicion of missionaries, and also because their Torah-observant, rule-dependent lifestyle sometimes isolates them from Gentiles and even other Jewish people. But Mark had faith that he would be able to speak with these precious people—and his Shalom New York T-shirt made it possible!
A Haredi man on the street was intrigued by the shirt and said, “Shalom!” to Mark. He was curious about the outreach, and Mark had the opportunity to share the message of Messiah with him!
It often takes prolonged discussion and relationship-building to help a Jewish person come to know Messiah. This is intensified when speaking of the Haredim, but we know a seed of Truth was planted, and we are believing it will bear fruit.
Powerful and effective website shows Jewish people the way to true shalom — in Messiah
Our I Found Shalom website is an easy-to-use and effective evangelism tool to share with your Jewish friends because it has the video stories of Jewish people—just like them—and how they met Messiah. It is a wonderful resource for you, too. Just watch the story of Israel Cohen, a Jewish believer who met the Messiah while serving in the United States Navy.
Your partnership with Chosen People Ministries makes a big impact for Jewish people around the world.
