Rev. George and Jean Gruen
Georgeís grandparents on his fatherís side
were Orthodox Jews in Europe. His grandfather knew Hebrew from childhood and
studied under the leading Rabbi in Poland. Through a series of events, he
studied Hebrew Scriptures that he had not read before. As a result of
extensive research in the Hebrew Bible and about the Messiah, Georgeís
grandfather and grandmother found Godís forgiveness of their sins in the
atonement provided by the Messiah.
The family left Europe and moved to the United States in the early 1900s.
Georgeís father Samuel was among them. One son, Herman, stayed in Europe and
was murdered in the Holocaust at the Buchenwald Camp in WWII.
In his personal search for Godís truth and what would happen after death,
George studied the Holy Scriptures. Because of what the God of Israel did in
his life in giving George perfect assurance of life in Heaven after death,
and because of the great peace and joy that he has experienced daily, he
dedicated his life to sharing the Jewish Holy Scriptures in every way
George and Jean were married in 2002, both having been widowed. Together
they have 3 children and six grandchildren.
