I am so thankful for the multitude of blessings God has given. Every breath I breathe is a gift from the Almighty. Every drop of water, every bite of food—everything good comes from Him. I open my refrigerator, and I thank God for giving us food to eat. “Every good gift and every perfect gift

The Gospel of John records a significant conversation Yeshua (Jesus) had with His disciple, Peter. Three times Yeshua asked Peter if he loved Him. Each time Peter responded affirmatively, Yeshua gave him a job to do: “Feed My lambs…Tend My sheep…Feed My sheep” (John 21:15–18). Since 1990 Bridges for Peace has been feeding the lambs

 “I just came from a meeting with Prime Minister Netanyahu!” Josh Reinstein told our assembled board members. “He asked me to emphasize to all leaders that I meet the three most urgent issues Israel is facing today.” My ears perked up. As a supporter of Israel and one who wants to show true friendship, it

I have frequently been involved in conversations with Christians (in many countries) who are concerned about the decisions that are being made by their leaders—decisions that are often not in Israel’s best interests. Recently the P5 +1 (USA, China, Russia, United Kingdom, France plus Germany) were meeting with Iran and making decisions that could have

God’s connection to the Land of Israel makes it unique among countries and people groups. As a matter of fact, it has been said that all other nations were created by acts of man, while Israel was created by an act of God Himself. In the Bible, He repeatedly promises Israel that they will be

One day an immigrant from the former Soviet Union said to me, “In Russia we had money to buy bread but there was no bread. In Israel, bread is everywhere but we have no money.” Elie Wiesel, the well-known author and Holocaust survivor, described hunger in his book Night, saying, “Bread, soup—these were my whole

“Oh, give thanks to the LORD! Call upon His name; make known His deeds among the peoples! Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him; talk of His wondrous works! Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the LORD!” (1 Chron. 16:8–10). Growing up in the United States, my favorite

Fulfilling God’s Chosen Fast

According to Isaiah 58, God’s chosen fast is not about eliminating food from our diet but “to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free,…and break every yoke…to share your bread with the hungry…” (vv. 6–7). Bridges for Peace helps break the yoke of poverty and hunger

More than Enough?

June 1, 2016

When I am hungry, I walk into the kitchen and open my refrigerator or cupboard, and they are never bare. I have more than enough for my daily needs. In the westernized world, most of us are blessed with a surplus of food. We do not know the pangs of hunger unless we are fasting

“My dream is not to go to bed hungry, to stop hearing my mother cry, and to stop being destroyed daily by pain.” The little girl was picking up food supplied by Bridges for Peace when she spoke these words. She lives in Dimona, a southern Israeli desert town where many are economically depressed. I

You might ask, “Why should I send money to Israel to feed the needy, when there are so many problems all around me?” Many of our faithful supporters are from countries facing disasters. In Japan, a 9.0 earthquake and subsequent tsunami and nuclear threat have devastated the country. (We have yet to hear from many

Modern-day Israel is one of the most compelling proofs that God is still active in human history today. His actions in bringing the Jewish people home to Israel in fulfillment of many prophetic Scriptures are a powerful testimony to His character. He is proving over and over again that He is a faithful, covenant-keeping God,

EVERY DAY, we see many people who are in distress. They are new immigrants without work, children who have lost a parent, mayors who feel the pain of their community, Holocaust survivors in their waning years.

August is vacation time in Israel. Normally, heavy traffic becomes light. Families flood the Galilee region of Israel or travel abroad if they can afford to do so. Many businesses close for the month, and a general attitude of lazy days pervades. The Knesset (Parliament) is in recess, and government offices operate with a skeleton

The Hebrew word for mercy is chesed (chet, samach, dalet) and means kindness, loving-kindness, goodness, kindly, merciful, favor, and good. Truly that is the character of our God. In Genesis, it

Thousands had gathered to hear from Yeshua (Jesus). All day they had soaked in His teaching. It was now evening and they had nothing to eat. The disciples brought the issue to Yeshua and His response was, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat” (Matt. 14:16). Of course what

Righteous Action Blesses the Lord

Yeshua (Jesus) frequently stressed the importance of righteous action. When He talked about the judgment of the nations, He didn’t say that they would be judged by what they believed (although that is important), or what battles they fought, or if they stood for democratic principles. He said they would be judged by how they
