Jew, Yemeni in Israel

The immigration of the majority of Jews into Yemen appears to have taken place about the beginning of the second century AD. With the advent of Islam in the 7th century, the political status of Jews underwent a radical change for the worse. The Jews lived under difficult conditions in Yemen for many centuries, and many have now returned to Israel.

Ministry Obstacles

The apostle Paul spoke of the veil over the eyes of the Jews. This veil continues to be a serious obstacle to understanding.

Outreach Ideas

The Messianic Jews of Israel are well positioned to carry the Gospel to the Yemeni Jews, but they need our prayer support.

Pray for the followers of Christ

There are few known Messianic Jews among the Yemeni Jews of Israel, but pray there will soon be growing numbers. Pray these Jewish believers will be zealous to know and serve Jesus.

Pray for the entire people group

Pray the veil will be lifted from the eyes of the Yemeni Jews that prevent them from recognizing the Messiah that has been sent.
