The David & Jonathan Foundation is a non-profit organisation, and was established 26 years ago by Jack and Annalee Carstens. We focus on partnering Churches around the world with Messianic Congregations in Israel. Messianic congregations in Israel have many needs. However, the biggest need is friendship, prayer and the sense of belonging to the body of Christ (Messiah). The believers are a small but growing minority in Israel. Many times they are persecuted and feel isolated. Knowing there are other believers out there that care and stand with them in their trials is a great encouragement to them.


We provide the opportunity to partner with these Congregations. Should your church wish to partner with a Messianic congregation in Israel, D&J will assist you to find a suitable group with whom you can make contact, send reciprocal newsletters, visit each other and, where possible, support them with material and financial blessings.


We undertake tours to Israel. Join us on our next tour and see the Holy Land. Tours are advertised in our 'upcoming events' tab. 

David and Jonathan Foundation is also available to discuss and share with the local church about God's age old plans and purposes with Israel and her role in the 'Last Days'. 

You are also encouraged invite our Simcha Puppet Ministry to share the Gospel and Bible lessons with your Sunday school or Kids Event. Please contact the office for more details. 

In his letter to the church in Rome, Saul/Paul says that he is not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus the Messiah, "because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile." - Romans 1 : 16 . 

-You are welcome to join us in this cause-
