MLO, pronounced M'lo, comes from the Hebrew word that means "full".
It is our desire to fill the earth
with quality literature
designed to reach the Jew first
with Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah.
Messianic Literature Outreach (MLO), founded by Rachmiel Frydland in 1977, is a unique ministry seeking to reach Jewish people through culturally sensitive literature. Rachmiel Frydland, Talmudic scholar, student in a top yeshiva in Warsaw Poland, and Holocaust survivor, was particularly adept at crafting literature for a Jewish mindset. Since his death in 1985, the ministry has continued through Elliot Klayman, now its Executive Director.
Estelle Frydland (the widow of the founder), Doug May, a lawyer, and Aaron L. Bortz, a business person - all Jewish believers in the Messiah - complete the ministry's Board of Directors. The ministry is based in Columbus, Ohio, and our staff includes our Office Manager, Betty Smith and our Financial Officer, Marcy Kotting
MLO produces a quarterly magazine that contains articles germane to an understanding of the Jewish origins and essence of the faith.
Through Messianic Publishing Company, a division of MLO, we produce several books including What the Rabbis Know about the Messiah and When Being Jewish was a Crime, which were written by our founder, as well as several others which are very effective for reaching and educating non-believers.
MLO also produces holiday and biographical tracts and other literature that is designed to answer pertinent questions that confront Jewish people.
Additionally, the ministry distributes free materials overseas to such countries as Nigeria, India, and the former Soviet Union. Our materials have been translated into several languages, including Yiddish, Spanish, Russian, French, and Italian. Through its Israel Outreach program, MLO distributes money to needy Jewish believers in Israel. MLO has endowed a scholarship at Moody Bible Institute for students who demonstrate a desire to go into Jewish ministry, and has seeded a scholarship through the Union of Messianic Jewish Congregation's Yeshiva Program.
