Today, according to statistics Israelis are spending more time a week surfing the internet than any other country in the world. Per capita, Israel boasts some of the highest numbers of people in the world who own and use computers and smart devices in their daily lives. These facts along with God’s leading has encouraged the development of an internet TV channel known as, “Yeshua Chai TV.” Yeshua Chai is a Hebrew play on words meaning, Yeshua is Alive or Yeshua Live.
The vision for the Yeshua Chai 24/7 internet TV channel was birthed in 2010 from the Revive Israel team as a project to reach the people of Israel with the good news of the Kingdom of God. This channel is one of our central projects, with a vision to unite the local body in Israel and serve as a dynamic platform for locally created evangelistic productions to bring the truth of Yeshua to all Hebrew speaking Israelis. There are over 6 million Jewish people living in Israel today; 95% of them have never heard the gospel and have never read the New Covenant Scriptures.
“How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?” – Romans 10:14
Over the years many believers both local and international have worked hard to bring the good news of Yeshua to our people, but have still only reached a small percentage of them. Yeshua Chai TV was established to reach a much higher number of our people through media and social networks in order to give them an opportunity to learn more about the truth of eternal life in Yeshua.
The channel was launched on September 21, 2015 and now broadcasts the gospel 24/7 through teaching, documentary films, worship videos, personal testimonies, and explanations about our faith. In addition to the programs that we are producing, our desire is to also provide a platform for all of local Israeli Messianic believers producing high quality evangelistic video materials in Hebrew and in a style that is attractive to young Israelis.
Currently the Yeshua Chai TV has forty-eight hours of material that is used around the clock. In 2019 we plan to add another thirteen hours of powerful content. But we can’t do this without you! We need $37,000 USD to reach this goal. For every $1,000 USD donated we are able to produce twenty minutes worth of high-quality content in Hebrew.
In 2018, through a paid online advertisement we put our channel in front of Israelis for the first time and we received over fifty thousand clicks which exposed them to the gospel. This led to many requests for the free New Testament we offered and much correspondence with those seeking to learn more about Yeshua. We plan to do another campaign in 2019 and need $35,000 USD to do so. Every gift of $70 USD will reach another 100 Israelis!
