Whilst in Jerusalem recently I met Meno Kalisher. His father was a holocaust survivor, his mother a Jew from Iran. Meno was born in Israel – his parents were amongst the first Messianic Jewish believers in the land and Meno had to decide whether or not to believe in Jesus – not an easy decision for a young Jewish person, especially in those days.
However, today he is the pastor of a congregation in Jerusalem that has grown from 13 to over 350. Are these people all new believers, I asked him?
