Unreached of Day: 2024-5-4

Croatian-speaking Jewish in Croatia

The Jews have been in Croatia since the third century. Many were killed during the Nazi occupation of Croatia in World War II. Following the war, most of the survivors fled to Israel, so the Jewish population in Croatia today is small. The largest concentration is found in the capital of Zagreb.

Ministry Obstacles

While the Jews in Croatia tend to be secular, they maintain a strong Jewish cultural identity. Antisemitism has been increasing and is often perceived as coming from Christians in general.

Outreach Ideas

The Bible and other resources are available in their language in print and online. Offering these resources could be effective, especially among college and university students.

Scripture Focus

"Oh sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth! Sing to the LORD, bless his name; tell of his salvation from day to day."  Psalm 96:1-2

Scripture Prayer

Let many from today’s people group sing a new song of praise to the Lord.

Prayer Focus

Ask the Holy Spirit to give the Jews of Croatia a spiritual hunger. Pray for them to realize their need for the only Messiah. Ask God to counter the growing antisemitism and to demonstrate his love through caring and compassionate Christ followers.
