Being a part of the Shalom summer mission team provides you the opportunity to see the heart of urban ministry, to understand the Scriptures from a Jewish perspective, and then to see the Scriptures everywhere you look as you tour Israel. While learning, you have the privilege of serving the Israeli people and meeting Jewish believers. Yet, the greatest opportunity the team provides is to see your love for Christ intensify as you develop a growing desire to see the Jewish people accept Yeshua.
From the summer I spent with the Shalom Team, I gained a greater love and respect for Israel and the Jewish people. I was also challenged like I had never been before in the area of street evangelism in NYC, with my eyes being opened to the blessings and difficulties of that type of ministry. I think my time with Shalom impacted me most in that it burned deeper into my heart a desire for Israel to know Yeshua, her Messiah, and it increased the reality of my hope in His return.

Through Jewish Eyes
In Through Jewish Eyes, you’ll find a myriad of parallels between Jewish customs and New Testament truth. Drawing from his own Jewish heritage, Hartman demonstrates how to use these parallels as points of contact for a gospel witness and for a better understanding of the New Testament s Jewish background. He speaks about the need for Christians to understand Judaism and to reach their Jewish neighbors and coworkers with news of the Messiah. Through Jewish Eyes will give you deeper insight into the Scripture and into Jewish culture.
