Bob Mendelsohn is the director of Jews for Jesus in AustralAsia which covers
Australia, New Zealand and Singapore. He grew up in an Orthodox Jewish family
in Kansas City, but became a college drop-out when he decided to look for the
meaning of life in the counterculture of the ’60s. He found meaning and
relevance in Jesus which caused him much trouble at home. But he says, “it was
worth the cost.” Bob has worked for Jews for Jesus since 1979, and served as the
leader of our work in Washington DC and New York City before moving to Sydney
in 1998. Bob and his wife Patty both graduated from the University of Kansas and
Fuller Seminary. They have three adult children and four grandsons.
