Chosen People Ministries’ David Sedaca, whose South American roots make him particularly knowledgeable about Spanish-speaking Jewish people, notes that over the past decades, many Spanish-speaking Jewish people have immigrated to Israel. The largest number came from Argentina, but there are Jewish people now in Israel from almost every Latin American country. While recently in Israel, David responded to requests to teach and preach in Spanish-speaking congregations in Haifa, Beersheba, Ashkelon and Ashdod. He reports, “In spite of opposition, the Lord is moving in a mighty way and hundreds of Spanish-speaking Jewish people are receiving Jesus.”
Chosen People Ministries exists to pray for, evangelize, disciple, and serve Jewish people everywhere and to help fellow believers do the same. The mission was founded in Brooklyn, New York in 1894 by Rabbi Leopold Cohn, a Hungarian Jewish immigrant with a zeal to share the knowledge of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah with God’s chosen people.
