Yom Kippur is upon us

September 08, 2021

This is an especially meaningful time in the Jewish year. We are in the middle of commemorating the biblical Fall Feasts. It started with Yom Teruah — also known as Rosh Hashanah — the start of the Jewish new year, which we just celebrated.

Now, Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year, is upon us. It’s the annual Day of Atonement when God covered and removed the sin of Israel. It’s the perfect reminder that Jesus our Messiah became our complete atonement through His death and resurrection.

And then five days later, we celebrate Sukkot — a time of rejoicing in God’s provision for Israel throughout history — from sustaining the Israelites in the wilderness for 40 years to providing for His people at harvest time. And, as Believers, the celebration includes our thankfulness for God’s ultimate provision, Jesus.

Out of your gratefulness for God’s provision through the amazing gift of His Son, I’m asking you to send a gift to further demonstrate your heart and compassion for the Jewish people.

Not only will you help meet the urgent needs of vulnerable Jewish people around the world, you’ll make it possible for these men, women and children to hear about the hope that can only be found in Jesus the Messiah!

In addition, when you give today, your gift will double in impact — up to the match amount — through the $141,000 Matching Challenge provided by generous ministry friends.
