The Unreached Peoples Prayer Profiles
The State of Israel, located on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea, has had a long and turmoiled history. Modern Israel's founding in 1948 ended 1,900 years of exile for the Jews. However, five wars with surrounding states and the 1991 Gulf War have exacted a heavy price on Israeli society.
Including the immigrants from 102 nations, Israel is 81.8% Jewish. Many still speak the languages of their lands of birth, and are better reached with the gospel through those languages. There is freedom for all religious groups to minister in their own communities except for Jewish Christians, who are denied any legal standing as a religious body. Proselytization and evangelism are frowned upon but not prevented.
