Ministry Highlight: Interview with Jonathan Craft, Las Vegas, NV

Our ministry is alive and well in Las Vegas, Nevada, which boasts a thriving Jewish community. We have several workers there loving and serving the Jewish people while sharing the truth of God’s Word in the community. At the root of these efforts is Jonathan Craft, our Las Vegas field representative who has served with The Friends of Israel for more than 20 years. He and his wife, Linda, model the mission of our ministry faithfully.

Jonathan sits down with us this week to discuss his work in Las Vegas’s Jewish community and how he and Linda chose to settle there. His story of evangelism with a Buddhist at the Warsaw Ghetto Remembrance Garden will remind you of the beauty of the Good News and strengthen your own faith in Jesus. Enjoy this up-close look at our ministry through Jonathan’s stories of his diligent service!

Zvi: The Miraculous Story Of Triumph Over the Holocaust

By Elwood McQuaid

The Friends of Israel’s best-selling book Zvi: The Miraculous Story of Triumph Over the Holocaust tells an incredible story of inspiration. Separated from his parents and forced to face the trials of Hitler’s Nazi regime, Holocaust survivor Zvi Kalisher triumphed against all odds and found his way to Israel and faith in the Messiah. 

His life was filled with incredible moments of courage and faithfulness. It will touch your life, as you’ll find it difficult to put down!


Apples of Gold: Mourning the Children of My Youth

While walking through an ultra-Orthodox section of Jerusalem, Zvi could hear school children singing an old song that he had sung as a child. The song was sad, and it reminded him of the other children he had sung the song with, many of whom perished in Nazi death camps. He desired for them to lament no longer and to call upon the Lord and rejoice in His salvation. Praying for guidance, Zvi entered the school to talk to the rabbi and the children to share the joy of the Lord with them.


The Friends of Israel Today and Apples of Gold theme music was composed and performed by Jeremy Strong.
