Rabbi Tovia Singer: Help Lost Jews in the Far East

$17,226 of $25,000 raised

raised by 119 people in 3 years

A groundbreaking journey in Southeast Asia began four years ago in the heart of the world’s largest Muslim country.  I received a surprising phone call from a leader of a Jewish organization in Indonesia who asked if I could help hundreds of descendants of Jews who were lost in churches throughout her country.  As it turned out, although their families converted out of the faith when Judaism was not a recognized religion in their country, they were finally willing to learn about their Jewish heritage.  She was very familiar with their Jewish ancestry, and having heard of Outreach Judaism's work in the West, she asked if I would study with them and answer their pressing questions.  A few weeks later, I flew to Papua, Indonesia’s largest Island and to Java, its most populous island.  Those special encounters launched a spiritual awakening that has dramatically changed the lives of hundreds of Indonesian Jews.

I studied intensely with descendants of Dutch, Iraqi, and Peruvian Jews.  They were all enthralled as they learned about the truth and beauty of the Jewish faith.  It was their first ever encounter with a rabbi.  This event marked the beginning of their spiritual odyssey. As history unfolded before my eyes, I realize I was bearing witness to prophecies I studied all my life: third to fourth generations of Jewish descendants longing to return and embrace their forefather's heritage. Although Judaism is still not an acknowledged religion in Indonesia, they are free to practice their newfound faith.  They asked me to remain as their rabbi and spiritual guide.  I agreed, and the Jews of Indonesia began to return home.

I am based in Jakarta, where broadband internet is available to continue making LIVE broadcast possible for my western audience.  Moreover, I travel to Papua to study with the descendants of Peruvian Jews. Together with Jewish leaders in Jakarta, I spent the past four years connecting the Jews of Papua back to Torah, the Jewish people, and the land of Israel. A stunning breakthrough occurred a few months ago when we organized the visit of three prestigious Jewish leaders from Israel to Indonesia’s Papuan Jews. This visit resulted in them being officially registered as a member community of Kulanu, an organization supporting isolated, emerging, and returning Jewish communities around the world. 

I am the only rabbi in this fourth largest country in the world, and my intense work here supporting the Jewish descendants in the East is crucial. There have been weddings and funerals of Jews, classes and seminars for Noahides, even meetings and discussions with local and international public figures. 

As Pesach approaches, we are now once again raising the funds for the vital operational cost of Outreach Judaism in Indonesia and the synagogue in Jakarta. We need to raise US$25,000 by April 15th, 2018 in order to pay for our annual rent and expenses. Would you consider giving from what God has given you so that we can sustain and continue our sacred work here?  The Jews in the East are  returning to the truth and beauty of the Jewish faith, and we need your help. Your generous support will make it possible for us to continue working with the Papuan Jews, sustaining our synagogues and programs for both Jews and Noahides of Indonesia.
