Brief Profile

The Israeli Jews, also known as Jewish Israelis, are an ethno-religious people group and are ethnic Jews who have direct or ancestry origins from Israel. The majority of Israeli Jews still have strong ties with Israel.

They commonly speak Hebrew at home while at the same time are fluent in English.

They often are business savy, well-educated, and are often in the forefront publicly influencing larger metro area politics. Marrying outside Judaism is frowned upon and in many cases results in being ostracizes family ties. To marry outside requires converting to Judaism.

Their ethnic identity is tied to their religious identity and vice versa. In other words, to be Israeli Jew means to adhere to Judaism. However, they adhere to many different branches of Judaism: to name a few, Reformed Judaism, Orthodox Judaism, etc.

Prayer Points

  • Pray God will send laborers to live among, become friends with, and exemplify through word and deed that Jesus Christ is the Messiah for all peoples.
  • Pray God will enlighten the hearts and minds, plus remove social, cultural, and religious barriers among Israeli Jews that prevent them from understanding Christianity and Jesus Christ.
