Chosen People Ministries was founded in Brooklyn, New York in 1894 by Leopold Cohn, a Hungarian immigrant rabbi who encountered and came to believe in Yeshua as Messiah. Rabbi Cohn saw physical and spiritual needs in the Jewish community around him, and he responded! Since then, Chosen People Ministries has grown and now ministers in 17 countries globally.
Chosen People Ministries desires to see Jewish people come into a saving relationship with their Messiah. We have many workers who creatively evangelize and disciple Jewish seekers on the streets, university campuses, in congregations, and around a friend’s dining table. Sometimes a spiritual need cannot be met until the physical needs are met. Chosen People Ministries has benevolence ministries including food and clothing distribution, visiting of shut-ins and other practical aid. There is no limit when it comes to fulfilling the Lord’s command to make Him known.
Chosen People Ministries loves to invest in young people for the growth of the next generation, to lead our Messianic Jewish Movement in reaching those who don’t yet know Yeshua. That is why we happily host Camp Kesher!
