Jews for Jesus Canada

Vision for Change

Every Jewish person has the right to make up their own mind about Jesus. Many Jewish people have never heard that following Jesus is a viable and thriving expression of Jewish life. We want other Jewish people to have the opportunity to experience the spiritual richness we’ve found in being Jewish and following Jesus.


Jews for Jesus was established as a Canadian not-for-profit, charitable organization in 1976, and is governed by a six-member Canadian Board of Directors. Our mission is to relentlessly pursue God’s plan for the salvation of the Jewish people. Jews for Jesus also has branches in other countries including the United States, Israel, Germany, Hungary, England, France, Russia, Ukraine, South Africa, Australia, and one undisclosed location.
