Croatian-speaking Jewish in Croatia
pronounced: croh-AY-shun joo

The Jews have been in Croatia since the third century. Many were killed during the Nazi occupation of Croatia in World War II. Following the war, most of the survivors fled to Israel, so the Jewish population in Croatia today is small. The largest concentration is found in the capital of Zagreb.

Ministry Obstacles: While the Jews in Croatia tend to be secular, they maintain a strong Jewish cultural identity. Antisemitism has been increasing and is often perceived as coming from Christians in general.

Outreach Ideas: The Bible and other resources are available in their language in print and online. Offering these resources could be effective, especially among college and university students.

Scripture Focus: "Whoever says I know him but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him."
- 1 John 2:4

Prayer Focus Pray for this people to learn and obey the commandments of God. Ask the Holy Spirit to give the Jews of Croatia a spiritual hunger. Pray for them to realize their need for the only Messiah. Ask God to counter the growing antisemitism and to demonstrate his love through caring and compassionate Christ followers.
