A CALL TO SPIRITUAL AWAKENING
Rabbi Jeff speaking at the Messiah Conference in Pennsylvania about the importance of the Restoration of the Jewish People. Watch this 13-minute video and be awakened to the urgent call to spiritual revival.
OUTREACH TO ELDERLY JEWISH RUSSIANS
Several times a year, we initiate outreach concerts and events for residents of low-income apartment buildings. They are mostly older Russian-speaking Jewish residents, many of whom are Holocaust survivors. Their childhood experiences of the war they survived stripped them of their innocence, left them with emotional scars and leave them searching for meaning and hope.
Our outreach events are held either at the apartment buildings themselves or at our Synagogue. When the event is at the synagogue, we pick them up at their apartment complexes and bus them to the Synagogue. Twice a year, we take them on coach bus trips - to a Niagara family farm (in the spring) and a local farm for a corn roast (in the fall).
During these outreach events, there is joyous worship and dancing unto the Lord. On many occasions, the children and the youth will sing and dance for them. Then a strong message from the Scriptures is preached and we pray for them one-by-one. They are always deeply touched by the love and power of God, and many of them have received the Lord. We end the evening by treating them to a light meal and fellowship.
Through our outreach efforts to these precious elderly people, we have made significant connections with their children and their grand-children. God has given us favour and we are reaching out to the generations!
We are sincerely grateful to all of our partners who have sown prayers and finances into projects such as these! The salvation and eternal destiny of our people is priceless. The prayers and gifts you have sown reap eternal rewards!
"Follow Me" - this is the call of Messiah and the critical work that Messianic Mandate engages in. We seek to build up and equip new believers in their faith and in Yeshua. This type of outreach is vitally important, as it assists them with the particular challenges of being a Jewish believer. We have regular Bible studies in several of the apartment buildings, as well as at City of David Messianic Synagogue.
Most Jewish people ask the question "Why don't the rabbis believe in Jesus?". "Twelve Sons of Israel" is an amazing book which answers this question with testimonies of 12 rabbis who became believers in Yeshua. Messianic Mandate supports the publication and distribution of this book, giving thousands of people in the community and beyond, the opportunity to consider who Yeshua is, from a Jewish perspective.
We have recently had this book translated into Russian and delivered it to thousands of Russian Jews living in our neighbourhood.
We believe that Lord is blessing every seed that we have planted in our community and will bless these outreach efforts one-hundred fold! It is our partnerships with people like you that make this a reality!
Isaac planted crops in that land and the same year reaped a hundredfold, because the Lord blessed him. (Genesis 26:12)
