Current political movement says Israel has no right to exist

July 26, 2019

Does Israel Have a Right to Exist? Current Political Campaign Against Israel Says, "No!" Over the past few years, the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement has spread and thrived on college campuses, and in companies, local organizations and local governments across the U.S., Canada and Europe. More recently, supporters - which includes some newer members of the U.S. Congress - are campaigning to see it enacted at national levels. So far, BDS proponents have yet to ...

We’re in a race against time to reach Emma and other Jewish Holocaust survivors

July 26, 2019

Emma was just a little girl when the bombs of WWII started falling. She wasn’t much younger than my own daughters. And I can’t imagine the fear and confusion she experienced… She was hated simply because she was Jewish. After hugging her papa for the last time, she rushed with her mama to catch the train that would get them out of her home country of Belarus. And even as she boarded the train, the alarms were going off, blaring a warning in the distance. Hitler’s hoard had arrived, ...

The potential for all-out war in Israel continues to escalate

July 19, 2019

The potential for all-out war in Israel continues to escalate On Friday, the Israeli army strengthened their missile defenses in response to a growing threat of violence from Hamas along the southern border. The southern Israeli communities are regularly targeted by rockets fired by Gaza terrorist groups – I’ve often shared updates and have asked you to join us in prayer for the safety of the Jewish people in these areas.

Violet thought she'd never see the faces of those she loved ever again...

July 17, 2019

Violet was guided by her daughter-in-law as they walked through our Medical Outreach in Mudanda, Zimbabwe. They gratefully received basic medical care from our team in the field. But Violet still couldn’t see. A tragic accident had stolen Violet’s eyesight a few years ago. And she’d given up hope of seeing the faces of those she loved ever again. The damage to her eyes was too severe. No amount of surgery would work. Violet would have no choice but to live in darkness … After leaving the Medi...

You won’t believe what your support accomplished in Ethiopia

July 11, 2019

I wouldn’t have believed it ... One of our Medical Outreach teams returned recently from Ethiopia. And what they had to report, was nothing short of a miracle. Venturing into a new area - Ambo Meda - it was a breakthrough experience for Jewish Voice. God had opened so many doors to prepare for this Medical Outreach. Our expectations were high as we prayed in the days and weeks leading up to this time of massive ministry. God gave us a vision of Gideon, the judge from the book of J...

A Private Miracle

July 09, 2019

Life in rural Zimbabwe requires hard work. Hands-and-knees gardening, fetching the day’s water supply, and washing clothes while bent over a portable tub in the yard ‒ or a rock at the stream ‒ are part of the household regiment. It’s a physical life demanding vigor and health, which is often a challenge when you need a doctor but can’t afford to see one or there aren’t any in your area to see. So, what do you do when you have a knee injury that hurts so badly you can’t do these chores? Well,...
