Jewish Voice Ministries is taking a team of medical and prayer volunteers in 2012 to Woliso, Addis Ababa, and Gondar, Ethiopia, and to a new location in Zimbabwe to minister to the Beta Israel, Beta Avraham, Gefat, and Lemba Jewish communities respectively. These Jewish communities are considered the Lost Tribes of Israel. We offer free medical, dental, and eye clinics plus spiritual nourishment through sharing the Gospel of Yeshua.
Gerald Gotzen, a respected world-renowned authority who has worked with Ethiopian Jews for 45 years and who partners with a Jewish Voice-supported ministry in Addis Ababa, notes that there are some 10,000 Ethiopian Jews remaining in Gondar and some 2,500 in Addis Ababa. “These are Jews in dire need,” adds Jewish Voice’s CEO, Jonathan Bernis. “They are not welcome in Israel because they are labeled as Christians, and they are shunned by their Ethiopian neighbors because of their Jewish identity. They have been abandoned by the world, but not forgotten by God."
Jewish Voice is committed to doing everything possible to help these people until they can return to Israel or the Lord returns.
