Now more than ever, those of us who love God’s Chosen People and believe His promises must take our stand with God’s chosen people around the world. In Israel – there are attacks on every side—military, political, economic and social. In Ukraine – such horrible devastation has been inflicted.
The purpose of the Jerusalem Prayer Team is to unite Believers around the world to stand in the gap for the Jewish people and pray for the peace of Jerusalem as God’s Word commands.
THE ONGOING WAR IN UKRAINE is perhaps the worst humanitarian crisis of our lifetimes. More than 10 million people—almost 1/4 of the entire population—have been forced to flee their homes, with just the few possessions they can carry. Those most impacted are the very elderly— precious Holocaust survivors—and the very young, including Jewish orphans. Tens of thousands are hungry because there is no food. They urgently need our help.
Friends of Zion has been in Ukraine for more than a decade, feeding impoverished Holocaust survivors. When Russia invaded Ukraine, we began ramping up the mission to bring food, blankets, medicine, and generators to impoverished refugees and Holocaust survivors. Since the war began, we have brought more than 8 million pounds of food into the war zone.
Friends of Zion Museum
The first Christian museum in Israel tells the true stories of Christians who have worked, prayed, given and sacrificed so much for the Jewish state and the Jewish people. This is a powerful testimony of Christian love that most Jewish people have never seen before…but together we are showing them the truth.
Holocaust Survivor Housing
There are still tens of thousands of precious men and women who endured the horrors of a concerted attempt to destroy an entire race of people. Now in their final years, most of them have no living family members to help care for them. Some don’t even have a safe place to live, but we are changing that, showing them love while there is still time.
Holocaust Survivor Community Center
One of the greatest problems facing Holocaust survivors is isolation and loneliness. At the request of the mayor of Jerusalem, we renovated a large World War Two era bomb shelter in the Holy City, and now operate it as a community center for Holocaust survivors. There they can meet with friends, get something to eat, and be shown they are not alone.
The tiny stipends Holocaust survivors receive from the government is often not enough for them to even buy the food they need to eat. Thanks to our generous friends and partners we are delivering food to more than 3,000 poor Holocaust survivors every week. This meets an urgent need, keeps them safe, and shows them Christian love in action.
Ten Boom Museum
The Jerusalem Prayer Team operates this wonderful museum in the ten Boom family home and watch shop to ensure that the story of the “Hiding Place” is never forgotten.
