Our History

One of the greatest prophetic events in history marked the year Jewish Voice Broadcasts, Inc. was born.

In 1967, healing evangelist Louis Kaplan launched a ministry called Jewish Voice. That same year, he started a radio program, Jewish Voice Broadcasts, which aired for the first time on Christian radio in Phoenix, Arizona. Later, a television program was added, which continues to air to this day. Not coincidentally, Israel reclaimed the city of Jerusalem in the 1967 Six-Day War, in fulfillment of a prophecy in Luke 21:24 that directly connects the reestablishment of Jerusalem with the times of the Gentiles being fulfilled.

Upon Kaplan’s death in 1998, the baton was passed to Jonathan Bernis. Founder of Hear O Israel Ministries, Bernis’ outreach organization produced large-scale, international Festivals of Jewish Music & Dance throughout Eastern Europe and Russia, sharing the Good News to eager audiences of both Jews and Gentiles.

The two ministries merged in 2001, becoming Jewish Voice Ministries International—now a multi-faceted ministry with several foci—major humanitarian medical, dental, and eye clinics to the impoverished Jewish communities of Ethiopia and India; Hear O' Israel! Festivals of Jewish Music & Dance that have expanded into Western Europe and South America; and the weekly Jewish Voice with Jonathan Bernis television program, which airs on Daystar Television Network, The Church Channel, Sky Angel Satellite Network, Crawford Communications (NRB), Cornerstone TeleVision Network (CTVN), Miracle Channel-Canada, and selected television stations from Seattle to Miami, as well as God TV, which airs the program throughout Israel and other parts of the Middle East.

JVMI also publishes the bimonthly Jewish Voice Today magazine and Connections newsletter, as well as books, CDs, and DVDs that feature Jonathan’s teachings.

Our website boasts a webstore that features Messianic Jewish resources, current news as it relates to Israel, streaming video of our weekly television program, information about our live webcast, and more. In 2010, JVM aggressively stepped up efforts to create a viable social media presence, expanding our networks on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, and WordPress. Friends, fans, and subscribers can now keep up with the latest information about the ministry through these communication avenues.

Jewish Voice Ministries speakers minister in congregations worldwide, sharing the Jewish roots of the Christian faith in order to equip and inspire the Body of Messiah for Jewish evangelism.

Jewish Voice’s mandate is to proclaim the Good News around the world to the Jew first and also to the Nations. This clear and focused calling is taking Jewish Voice Ministries to the far corners of the world and will continue to energize us until Messiah returns.

Jewish Voice Ministries International is dedicated to proclaiming the Gospel of Yeshua (Jesus) to the Jew first and also to the Nations throughout the world, according to Romans 1:16. The Good News is proclaimed through television, print and online media, international festival outreaches & medical clinics/humanitarian aid.
