Hear O’ Israel! Festival of Music & Dance

Festival Update

Jewish Voice has been in the middle of a massive undertaking to bring our Hear O’ Israel Jewish Festival of Music & Dance to the city of Kharkov, Ukraine later this year.

Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, our plans had to change. Although we had written permission from the city of Kharkov, we had to postpone the event due to conflict with key authorities in the area who remained opposed to us putting on the festival.

This opposition was unexpected, but my resolve remains. Ukraine is a volatile country right now, but with great needs, and many are spiritually open due to the conflict and uncertainty they face.

We are reapplying and hope to obtain permission from all necessary authorities to hold the festival in Kharkov in 2017.

I am so grateful for your prayers and contributions for this festival, and I can assure you that all raised funds will be held in a designated account earmarked just for this event.

We are very committed to bringing the Gospel to the Jewish community of Kharkov in 2017 and ask for your prayers for all needed breakthroughs so that Yeshua can be glorified.

As soon as we have new dates confirmed, we will communicate those to you, right away.

Again, thank you so much for your prayers and your sacrificial giving. We will prevail, and Yeshua will be glorified!

Hear O’ Israel! Festivals of Music & Dance

Of course, it’s not only those in poverty who need Yeshua, and music and dance can often touch the heart in ways that words alone cannot. That’s why Jewish Voice takes the Gospel to large city centers around the globe with our Hear O’ Israel! Festivals of Music & Dance. Locations are chosen based on reaching Jewish populations, and we are privileged to entertain and minister to thousands of non-Jewish people as well.

Dozens of performing artists come from all over the world to provide a spectacular entertainment event capturing the culture and history of the Jewish People and the nation of Israel, including a moving dance performed against the backdrop of powerful Holocaust images.

While musicians and dancers rehearse for the upcoming shows, teams of outreach partners saturate the event with prayer and take to the streets with translators to pass out flyers, extend personal invitations, and share the Gospel. Thousands come to each performance, and we often have to arrange overflow venues to accommodate the crowds.

At the end of each performance, Jonathan Bernis delivers a stirring message presenting Yeshua (Jesus) as the Messiah longed for by the Jewish People and given for the sin of us all. Prayer counselors minister to those who come forward in response. Local congregations disciple new Believers and follow-up with everyone who expressed interest in learning more about Jesus.

Why We Go

There is no more important time to share the Good News of salvation than this very moment. Ministering a message of love, hope, and eternal life, Jewish Voice Festivals leave a lasting legacy of spiritual growth and creativity, as well as a spirit and passion for following God – all absolute necessities for any Believer facing persecution and the hatred birthed of anti-Semitism.

No one knows how long this window of opportunity will remain open. Now is the time to bring them the Gospel message, before it’s too late.

God is preparing hearts even now to receive invitations from our street outreach team. He is working to bring them to the Festival to uplift their heavy hearts and point them to Yeshua the Messiah.

There is much to this event, and outreach partners are the foundation that makes it successful.
