But over the last 50 years, since the Six Day War in 1967 and the restoration of Jerusalem to the Jewish people, attitudes toward Jesus are changing dramatically. Here are just two examples of influential Israelis who have had a major impact on Jewish attitudes toward Jesus, King of the Jews.
Yochi Brandes: Background
Yochi Brandes was born in Haifa in 1959, the daughter of the famous Hassidic Rabbi Yitzhak Rabinovitz. Brandes’ family tree is littered with eminent rabbis, and she herself was a star student in ultra-Orthodox schools, obtaining a BA in Biblical Studies and an MA in Judaic Studies. She has been teaching Bible and Judaism for many years and has created courses on Jewish thought that are taught in schools throughout Israel. Her novels are bestsellers in Israel and she has been awarded the Book Publishers Association Platinum Book Prize for seven of her works.
