"Ammi" is Hebrew for "My People," one of God's covenantal terms used in the Tanakh for Israel. Ammi Ministry is a Christian ministry to Jewish people. We do not ask you to "convert" to Christianity. The message of the Prophets to the people of Israel was always, "Return to the Lord your God!" We believe that in today's context, returning to God means accepting Yeshua (Jesus) as Israel's Messiah. But here again we do not ask you simply to accept this belief. First, we ask you to commit yourself to study the Tanakh, Israel's Holy Scriptures. This site helps you study these Scriptures. Then we encourage you to follow where Moses and the Prophets lead you. If the Word of God leads you to believe that Yeshua is Ha Mashiach (the Messiah), then commit your life to him, for as the name Yeshua (Hebrew for "Salvation") implies, he came to save his people from their sins.
Ron Elkin, Director and Founder
This Web site is organized into two major divisions:
There are many Jewish Web sites that represent anti-missionary organizations. The purpose of these organizations is to present material to counter the arguments of Christian missionaries to Jewish people. Ammi Ministry and this Web site present materials that argue from the Tanakh that Yeshua is Ha Meshiach (that Jesus is the Messiah). We do not object to Jewish organizations that present arguments from the Tanakh in support of Judaism on this issue. Contact us and we will discuss any biblically-based argument with you.
Please be aware, however, that some--though certainly not all--of these anti-mssionary Web sites accuse organizations such as Ammi Ministry of using deliberately deceptive arguments. Some of these sites also misrepresent both Christianity and its goals in Jewish missions. For example, one such Web site states that the goal of such mission endeavors "is the eradication of the Jewish people through assimilation."
We pledge to you that this is not our goal. Our founder, Ron Elkin, was born Jewish and remains Jewish. We believe and teach that accepting Yeshua as the Messiah of Israel in no way renounces or repudiates your Jewishness. Think about it: if the God of the Tanakh, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, did indeed send Yeshua, King Messiah, then believing on him is nothing less than returning to the Lord God of Israel. We also believe in the future fulfillment of all the promises made to Israel in the Tanakh. We pledge that the material presented here is based on honest biblical scholarship and is not deceptive in any sense. Yes, we would like you to believe that Yeshua is Israel's Messiah and Savior--but only if you believe our case is built on the correct interpretation of the Tanakh--the meaning intended by Israel's prophets who wrote it. We are always ready to discuss any honestly raised questions or biblically-based counter arguments.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
"He who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep."
I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your descendants after you. I will give to you and to your descendants after you, the land of your sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.
He has remembered His covenant forever, the word which He commanded to a thousand generations, the covenant which He made with Abraham, and His oath to Isaac. Then He confirmed it to Jacob for a statute, to Israel as an everlasting covenant, saying, "To you I will give the land of Canaan as the portion of your inheritance."

In Judah God is known;
his name is great in Israel.
His abode has been established in Salem,
his dwelling place in Zion.
There he broke the flashing arrows,
the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war.
"The care of Salem, or Zion, lies at the bottom of all God's powerful actings and workings among the sons of men. Every mighty work of God throughout the world may be prefaced with these...verses. The whole course of affairs in the world is steered by Providence in reference to the good of Salem [Jerusalem]."
