How is this Passover like the very first?

March 03, 2021

Passover is a time of miracles, movement and freedom. It’s a season that asks us to look ahead. Will you look ahead with me for just a few minutes? I want to share how Passover influences the way we think about our purpose. This pandemic has been a turning point for many of us, and Jewish Voice is no exception. Prayerfully, we have spent this time planning and preparing for a new season of global outreach. Many groups speak of blessing and helping the Jewish people and provide for the p...

February 25, 2021

“These days should be remembered and observed in every generation by every family, and in every province and in every city. And these days of Purim should never fail to be celebrated by the Jews – nor should the memory of these days die out among their descendants.” Esther 9:28 (NIV) Happy Purim! Let’s rejoice together as we recall how God rescued His People and provided for and protected them in Esther’s day, throughout history and still today. And let’s celebrate how He has ultimate...

Join us as we stand in prayer

February 24, 2021

It’s almost Purim, which celebrates the Jewish people’s rescue from the evil plot of Haman, an anti-Christ figure. Key to this biblical account is Esther, a young Jewish woman who became queen of Persia. In a time of crisis, her relative Mordecai persuaded Esther to stand before the King on behalf of her people. Can you quote Mordecai’s famous exhortation to her? He told her, “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and yo...

The Watershed of Passover

February 22, 2021

Passover is one of the most important holidays on the Jewish calendar. It’s often called a watershed in Jewish history. What’s a watershed? A watershed is a point of dramatic change dividing something into clear “before” and “after” identities. A watershed event or moment alters a subject’s trajectory. Whereas it may have continued on one path, a watershed sets it on another, reshaping and perhaps redefining it. Before Passover, the nation of Israel was enslaved to Pharaoh. The Jewish p...

Iran “a matter of weeks” from worrying nuclear milestone

February 04, 2021

You can help reach members of the "Lost Tribes of Israel"

February 02, 2021

I’m writing to ask for your help in reaching members of the “Lost Tribes of Israel” and other Jewish communities in Africa with something they desperately need: clean, safe water. But first, let me share a powerful story from Exodus 15:22-27 about the miracle of clean water: Right after crossing the Red Sea, the Israelites entered the Wilderness of Shur. But within three days, they were in desperate need of water. Coming upon a spring called Marah (“bitter”), they found the water undrin...

See where Jesus washed His disciples' feet

January 29, 2021

You can imagine the disciples’ confusion – their glances around the room and the unspoken question in their eyes. “What is He doing?” Jesus had taken off His outer garment and wrapped a towel around His waist. He filled a basin with water, knelt before His disciples – and began washing their feet. How could this be? This was servants’ work. Yet here was their Rabbi, the Messiah of God, humbling Himself to serve them in one of the lowliest ways. After He finished, He explained many th...
