Dan Sered was born in Israel on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. His upbringing, like that of many Israelis, was secular, though he was bar mitzvah at age thirteen. Two years later, his family moved to New York where Dan attended Stony Brook University and met Dinah, a Jewish believer in Jesus. Dinah shared the Gospel with Dan explaining that the name of Jesus in Hebrew is Y'shua, and showed Dan how the Hebrew Bible spoke of His coming.
Dan committed his life to Y'shua, but not before telling his parents first. Surprisingly, they didn't respond negatively and Dan discovered that Dinah, her family and church had all prayed about his parents' response. Dan's parent's reaction was one of 'you will get over this Jesus' which off course Dan did not. This led to Dan's parents' disowning him. In August 1999 Dan & Dinah were married and shortly after they responded to God's call to serve as missionaries joining Jews for Jesus.
In August 2000 they moved to Israel where they have been serving with the ministry since. In 2006, Dan was appointed as the director of Jews for Jesus Israel. In 2013 Dan completed his Master of Arts degree in Jewish ministry and leadership from Western Seminary. Dan & Dinah have 3 children; Yael, Eithan and Yoav. Dan & Dinah's children have led to a softening of Dan's parent's rejection and today they have a relationship with Dan's family; but still they are not open to the Gospel and Jesus.
