Estonian Jewish in Estonia


Estonian Jewish in Estonia

Yiddish is one of key Jewish languages in Eastern European countries like Estonia. Yiddish has been one of the things that set this group apart, along with the Jewish religion.

Ministry Obstacles

Because of the uniqueness of their history and culture, Yiddish-speaking Jews have a strong sense of identity. Persecution of and discrimination against the Jews have been the historical reasons for their migrations and settlements in other parts of the world.

Outreach Ideas

The Jews of Estonia are trying to maintain their Jewish traditions. They are opening Jewish schools and promoting Judaic studies in universities. Many Jews seem interested in learning more about their history and identity. Perhaps this can be a segue to the gospel.

Scripture Focus

"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever!"  Psalm 111:10

Scripture Prayer

Pray for fear of the Lord and wisdom to come to this people group.

Prayer Focus

Pray for the Jews who have chosen to follow Jesus to be bold in sharing their faith. Pray for churches to grow and engage in evangelism and disciple making. Pray for the hearts of the Yiddish-speaking Jews of Estonia to be open to the gospel and to Jesus as messiah. Pray for a movement to Christ among Eastern Yiddish-speaking Jews.
