Not long after Beth Ariel was birthed in 1996, some members of the congregation had it on their hearts to begin a street ministry, a door to door outreach to the Jewish people of Montreal. With a population of close to 100,000 and with our Jewish communities demographically knitted so closely together, it was not difficult to identify where to go as long as we always knew to walk behind the prayer support of warriors who backed up the team and of course the Lord who led the way into many conversations.
 

We have given out more than 1800 bible sets (Old and New Testament) to Jewish homes. We are greatly indebted to the Society for the Publication of Hebrew Scriptures, who has provided these free bibles for distribution to Jewish non believers.

One sows, another reaps but we are all to enjoy the ingathering together.

Welcome to Knock and Talk. Join us in prayer as we go door to door together, sharing the truth of Who Yeshua (Jesus) is.

He proudly said he and his son practiced the annual chicken sacrifice on the Day of Atonement, a ritual called “kapparot”. This ritual entails taking a live chicken (or money) and waving it over a person’s head. The chicken is then slaughtered according to Jewish rules for slaughtering. This is usually done on the day before Yom Kippur and the following prayer is said: This is my exchange, this is my substitute, this is my atonement. This rooster (hen) will go to its death, while I will enter and proceed to a good long life and to peace.

Another young woman taking the pamphlet was asked if she believed in Yeshua.  Her astounding answer was, “Yes, he is the Jewish Messiah”. She confessed that she sometimes prays in Yeshua’s name and said that her family had died in the Holocaust. One of the team members shared her own testimony of going through a difficult period and how she came to have a personal relationship with Yeshua.

Then a man received a French bible and he told the team how he had been hurt by the religious Catholic system.  He had found it difficult to have a relationship with God because of this hurt and the team member told him the story of the rich man who met Jesus and wanted to know how to have eternal life.  Jesus replied that the gift was free and this seemed to touch this gentleman and he was very happy to receive the French bible.

One man was approached with the Passover pamphlet, and he responded well to receiving it. A conversation arose where he said that he was brought up in a very religious family and went to a synagogue when he was young.

We shared about the Messiah with him. He deeply respected Jesus for His moral teachings but couldn’t come to recognize Him as divine in nature. We pointed out many messianic prophecies from Malachi to Isaiah and many of the Torah writings which pointed to the deity of the Messiah and which hinted concerning the Trinity. He respected our biblical stand but wasn’t yet ready, in his words, to jump into the Christian faith.

Then a woman, who had lived in Israel many years, was happy to receive a pamphlet and a gift set. While giving her the set at her car she became quite upset and began to cry. One team member consoled her asking if she could give her a hug. The woman was so grateful for such a warm response and accepted to be prayed for in the name of Yeshua.
