Yiddish is a Germanic language, spoken throughout the world and written with the Hebrew alphabet. For a significant portion of its history it was the primary spoken language by the Ashkenazi (European) Jews. Yiddish is written and spoken as a living language in many Orthodox Jewish communities around the world. It is most notably used as a first language in most Hasidic communities, where it is the first language learned in childhood and used in home, schooling and many social settings.
Orthodox Jews find it quite difficult to accept Jesus as the Messiah of Scripture, the anointed of God.
The Messianic Jews of Israel may be able to demonstrate with their lives that trust in Jesus has validity and brings life.
There may be a few followers of Christ the Messiah among the Yiddish speaking Jews. Pray they will become firmly grounded in the finished work of Christ on the cross, trusting him fully for salvation and for a fruitful life.
Pray for the Yiddish speaking Jews to see that the scriptural references to the coming Messiah describe so well the person of Jesus Christ, his life and finished work.
"Since Abraham will surely become a great and mighty nation, and in him all the nations of the earth will be blessed." Genesis 18:18
