Dan Sered, Director of Jews for Jesus' Israel Branch, was born in Israel to a secular Jewish family. While his parents might have been considered atheists, he, himself, always believed in God and the miracles that God does in the TaNaKh (Old Testament). At age 12, when studying to become a Bar Mitzvah, Dan had questions about the Messianic prophecies and realized his rabbi didn’t seem to have all of the answers. In his mid-teens, the Sered family was relocated to New York, where Dan later attended Stony Brook University and met Dinah, a Jewish believer in Jesus. Dinah shared the Gospel with Dan and showed him how Yeshua (Jesus) fulfilled the prophecies he had questioned about years before. His eyes were opened and Dan committed his life to the Lord. In 1999, Dan & Dinah were married and shortly after began to serve as missionaries; joining Jews for Jesus and later moving to Israel. In 2006, Dan was appointed as the Israel Director of Jews for Jesus. Israel currently has the largest
Jews for Jesus branch in the world today with multiple departments who are united together with the same goal of reaching the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
