Israel is at the heart of Christianity, but many people don’t understand the significance of their Jewish roots or their connection to the Land.
CMJ Israel has been active in the Land for nearly 200 years and continues to impact the nation through reconciliation, outreach, evangelism, education, and discipleship. They bring believers of Muslim background from across the Middle East to Jerusalem to worship, pray, and share with Messianic Jews and Christians at Christ Church Jerusalem. CMJ’s four heritage centers and Shoresh Tours teach the Jewish Roots of the Christian faith, the Anglican International School, Jerusalem, provides educational excellence to local and international students, while their Guest Houses offer lodging and peaceful areas for fellowship that facilitate outreach and evangelism.
CMJ Israel has been a presence in the Land since the 1830s. Their three-fold purpose is to inform the gentile church of their Jewish roots, serve and honor the Jewish people, and promote the spiritual restoration of the Body in Israel.
