Short-term Missions Trips

IBJM takes several short-term missions trips each year to locations around the world. Join us on these life-changing journeys; you may discover God’s calling on your life.

Experience the rich history and culture of cities such as Paris, France; Kharkov, Ukraine; Boston, Massachusetts; New York City; and other large cities where significant Jewish populations exist. Mission highlights include Bible and tract distribution, one-on-one evangelism opportunities on streets and in Jewish neighborhoods, teaching/preaching in local churches, and sightseeing popular venues.

Pack your bags and join us in making an eternal impact across the globe!

IBJM is committed to equipping team members in successful Jewish evangelism methods. We offer two-day training sessions prior to each trip. It is our desire to be used by God to the fullest extent which means preparing participants for the ministry He has planned.


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.
