Another meaningful exhibit is the Holocaust Memorial with a special focus on the rescue efforts of the Corrie ten Boom family and the Hiding Place.

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.
