Died. Moishe Rosen, 78, Jewish-born Baptist minister, missiologist, author, and founder of Jews for Jesus, May 19, 2010, in San Francisco, of prostate cancer. After graduating from Bible college and deciding to be a missionary to the Jews, Rosen was ordained as a Conservative Baptist minister in 1957 and founded what became known as Jews for Jesus (www .jewsforjesus.org) in 1969. In 1973 he left the employment of the American Board of Missions to the Jews (now called Chosen People Ministries) to incorporate the separate mission. He stepped down as executive director in 1996 and continued as a staff missionary and board member until his death. He is coauthor with his wife of Christ in the Passover: Why Is This Night Different? (1977, 2006). Among the books recounting the Jews for Jesus story is Not Ashamed: The Story of Jews for Jesus (1999), by Ruth Tucker, an IBMR contributing editor.
