In addition to local outreach programs, Sar Shalom supports ministries around the globe.
Vision for Israel is a non-profit organization created by Barry and Batya Segal in 1994 out of the desire to help build and restore the Land. VFI freely provides aid to the poor and needy people, both Jewish and Arab, living in the nation of Israel today through The Joseph Storehouse, an international humanitarian aid center operating in the Judean Hills just outside of Jerusalem. Projects include help to Holocaust survivors, victims of terror, and medical aid, just to name a few.
The Messianic Jewish Alliance of America (MJAA), founded in 1915, is the largest association of Messianic Jewish and non-Jewish believers in Yeshua (Jesus) in the world. Its purpose is threefold:
- To testify to the large and growing number of Jewish people who believe that Yeshua (Hebrew for Jesus) is the promised Jewish Messiah and Savior of the world
- To bring together Jewish and non-Jewish people who have a shared vision for Jewish revival
- And, most importantly, to introduce our Jewish brothers and sisters to the Jewish Messiah Yeshua
Why is this necessary? For many centuries the Jewish people have frequently suffered at the hands of those calling themselves followers of Jesus. At the same time, the “Good News” or Gospel of Yeshua was often presented without mention of this Gospel’s roots in God’s relationship with His Jewish people throughout Scripture, and His promise of salvation through the Jewish Messiah.
These factors lead many Jewish people to assume that to follow Yeshua is to leave the faith of their fathers and become non-Jewish. The MJAA has worked to combat this misperception for almost a century.
Maoz Israel Ministries is a Messianic Jewish non-profit organization founded in 1976, and whose ministry headquarters is based in Tel Aviv, Israel.
They also encourage and sponsor born-again Jews returning to the land of Israel. They help immigrants set up small businesses, help them with immigration, and have fought for the civil rights of Jewish believers in Yeshua (Jesus) in the land of Israel. Maoz also manages a humanitarian aid organization, istandwithisrael.com, in Israel that supports widows, orphans, the needy, oppressed and victims of terrorism.
This organization also grants scholarships for educational advancement in Hebrew language studies (for new immigrants), job skills and career courses, and university studies for Israeli Messianic Jews.
