Finnish Jewish in Finland

Finnish Jewish in Finland

Jewish people have lived in Finland since the 1700s. Their numbers rose when Jewish soldiers from Russia arrived in the 19th century and remained after their military service. Many immigrated to Israel when it was established, but more arrived in Finland after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Ministry Obstacles

Many Jewish people in Finland follow cultural Judaism, but they have rejected the spiritual elements taught in the Old Testament and refuse to receive Jesus. They are waiting for another Messiah.

Outreach Ideas

Audio and visual Bible resources, including the JESUS Film, and a complete printed Bible exist in the Finnish language. Someone needs to take these gospel materials to the Finnish Jews.

Scripture Focus

"Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchman stays awake in vain."  Psalm 127:1

Scripture Prayer

Pray that this people group understands that all their efforts are worthless unless they subject them to the Lord.

Prayer Focus

There are no known New Testament churches among Jewish people in Finland. Pray for this to change soon. Ask the Lord of the harvest to send forth loving Christians to work among the Jewish communities. Pray that the Jewish people would understand that Jesus is the long-awaited Messiah. Ask the Lord to soften the hearts of the Jews towards Christians so they might hear and receive the message of salvation. Pray for a network of Christ-centered fellowships to be raised up among this Jewish community.
