Jewish Evangelism Seminar

International Board of Jewish Missions was founded in 1949 by Dr. Jacob Gartenhaus, a “completed” Jew, who, after being reared in an Orthodox Jewish home in Austria, moved to America in search of riches. Instead, he was led to the Messiah by his older brother in New York City.

We are living in the last days.

The return of Christ is near. As a result, Christians today need to be challenged as never before with the events of Bible prophecy, the fulfillment of many of these events, and their responsibility to the Jewish people. Remember, God’s heart is with the Jewish nation; they are precious in his sight (Deuteronomy 7:6).

Let IBJM arrange a Jewish Evangelism Seminar at your church emphasizing prophecy, evangelism and Jewish missions. We would love to work with your local church in setting up a Missionary or Prophecy Conference. We will cooperate with your pastor and congregation and help arrange missionary speakers and presentations. We can supply missionary speakers, candidates on deputation, special instruction in setting up a Jewish outreach, and more.

Support the Ministry

The ultimate purpose of IBJM is to bring the Jewish people in direct contact with the truth of the gospel. Help IBJM fulfill our purpose by supporting the ministry financially.


About IBJM

IBJM was founded in 1949 by Dr. Jacob Gartenhaus. Brought up in an Orthodox Jewish home in Austria, he moved to New York City in his early twenties where he trusted Jesus as Messiah and Savior after reading Isaiah 53.

Persecuted and beaten by friends and forsaken by his family, the young Gartenhaus was led by God to become an ambassador to his own people, establishing the IBJM ministry.
