The other day I was sent an email from an old friend of mine who now lives as a Pastor of a Messianic Jewish Congregation in Israel. He has been experiencing persecution along with his congregation in the small town of Arad in the Negev Desert.
He sent me some news items that explain what is happening. Firstly there are a couple of News Items from Israeli television that explain what Messianic Judaism is all about:
Then there is a CBN report on Arad and what’s happening here and includes an interview with Yakim. (http://www.cbn.com/CBNnews/210220.aspx)
I was talking with Yakim a few months ago and he was telling me the increasing pressures these congregations are coming under. So please pray for them. I think you will find the news reports here very interesting.
