Persecution is on the rise. As the number of Israelis turning to their Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) increases, the need for legal aid has also escalated. Messianic believers in Israel have been severely persecuted, mainly by ultra-Orthodox organizations whose acts of violence and legal harassment in the last few years are meant to intimidate and suppress the free practice of faith in Yeshua the Messiah.
Maoz has been involved in helping persecuted believers in Israel virtually since our establishment. Many times we've written in our monthly Maoz Israel Report about the victims of persecution—such as Ami Ortiz, Israel and Pnina Comforti and believers in Arad and Beer Sheva. Their rights to worship and practice their faith in freedom are being severely violated.
Several cases taken to court by believers in Israel are still pending, and istandwithisrael.com is committed to help these families suffering because of their faith. Israel, as a democratic state, promises freedom of religion as a core value.
