Swedish Jewish in Sweden

Swedish Jewish in Sweden

Sweden’s Jewish population experienced antisemitism especially in the 1930s, when they were under the influence of the Nazis. Since that time, Swedes have learned to hate any form of racism. However, there are a large number of recently arrived Muslims, some of whom hold hostile feelings toward Jews. Sweden’s Jewish population is urban and prosperous.

Ministry Obstacles

This people group has already faced so much and may not be open to accepting change. This is especially true of those they regard as Christians. It might take generations before Sweden’s Jewish population can trust the general Christian population.

Outreach Ideas

Many of Judaism’s principles and beliefs are very similar to those of Christianity, and any outreach should focus on that.

Scripture Focus

"Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures,"  Luke 24:45

Scripture Prayer

Pray that the minds of this people group will be opened to understand God’s word by the Spirit Himself.

Prayer Focus

Pray that efforts to reach the Jews in Sweden would be conducted by those who love them and want them to thrive spiritually. Pray for Messianic Jews to present Jesus in a culturally appropriate way. Pray for a movement to Christ among Swedish Jews.
