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 is the Gift Giver

This last Sunday was our last outreach for Hanukkah. We had one team in Montreal and we are excited to share this latest report with you.


Door to Door of Another Kind

In these last several weeks, a decision was made by the outreach teams that we would stay on the sidewalks in Jewish neighborhoods and hand our Hannukah “gifts” in the form of pamphlets. The picture above shows the lovely Calgary “gift” bag handed out to Jewish people. In Montreal, our bags were very similar but contained three special Hannukah candles and a children’s toy called a dreidel.


I tell them, “Behold the Days are coming…!!


What a privilege it is to be part of the Knock and Talk team of Beth Ariel Congregation.

I have been with this outreach for a number of years and experience it as a great blessing.

My husband and I listen to the messages from our Pastor Jacques Isaac Gabizon. Preached from a Jewish perspective, they enhance our understanding of the Scriptures and cause our hearts to be stirred to share this wonderful News, especially with the Jewish people.


This was the Day She Wanted to Know More


While we are still in quarantine from going door to door, we continue to pray and be encouraged concerning the work that God has given us for this Kingdom march. Here is a testimony of another team member of the Knock and Talk outreach, recounting what this work has meant to her.


The Word: Our Watered Oasis


Through the Knock and Talk ministry, God rejoices our hearts week after week with encounters, touching stories, and sometimes with the privilege to pray with His people. We also witness some of their personal suffering. Some of these Jewish people we have met were eagerly hoping in the soon coming of Messiah. They understand and believe, each to varying degrees, that with his coming, pain would end.


What we will NOT be doing in heaven

One thing I have been taught at my congregation is: “Evangelize here and now because this is what we will not be doing in heaven… after all, there are no sinners there”.

Here is our second testimony, this one coming from a long-time member of the Knock and Talk team as she shares the incentives in and the goals for joining this ministry.


A Busy Time of Prayer

Since the Covid 19 outbreak, many activities have come to a standstill. One of those ministries which was affected was the Knock and Talk outreach. It has been about one month since the group stopped going out, but they met up in another great way; the strategic battle plans changed their course of action. Instead of going to the doors, they are praying together by phone, remembering so many of those to whom they gave out Bibles and praising the Lord for all the great opportunities given them. They are fortifying themselves and covering each other until they get back on the battle front again, never losing sight of the ultimate victory, meeting Yeshua at the finish line. Please continue to pray with us that many would have their eyes supernaturally opened so that during this lockdown they would be able, by God’s grace,  to see the hand of God and hear His own battle cry of warnings to us all.


We would like to share with our readers some personal testimonies from the Knock and Talk team members.  These quieter times have given them opportunity to reflect and write about things close to their heart concerning Knock and Talk. This first report is from our sister who heads up the Knock and Talk teams. Be blessed as she shares her heart with you.


My chains are gone

There was one team of three persons on this week’s outreach. We gave five sets, 3 anti-Semitism pamphlets and one sheet on Isaiah 53.


Hebrew at its Best


As messianic Jews we are often reminded by the more scholarly orthodox that we cannot understand the scriptures unless we know the Hebrew language very well. So what happens when a Hebrew teacher reads the language in a different way, for now she recognizes the Spirit Who authored the letters. What a different kind of read that can be.


Standing worlds apart

… And they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not lift up sword against nation.
And never again will they learn war. Isaiah 2:4b
Knock and Talk February 17th, 2020


A total of nine sets and one Tanakh were received during the evening’s outreach.
