If the Bible is true and if Yeshua is the Messiah
and the king of the Jews, then the Messianic Jewish
movement is the most important phenomenon
of our time—the distinguishing feature indicating
that the world has come to a turning point.” – Abram Poljak
I’m Rabbi Nathan, the Senior Rabbi at Congregation Ruach Israel in Needham, MA. Pictured here with me are my wife Raina and six children.
At the summit of a life transforming journey – a 2,100 mile backpacking trip along the Appalachian Trail (AT) stretching from Georgia to Maine – I encountered Yeshua (Jesus) in the heart of the White Mountains. My life changed forever. Shortly after my new found faith and an answered prayer, I met Raina. Yes, the love story is true. Raina picked me up when I was hitchhiking into town. Raised attending Conservative Jewish synagogue, Raina also became a follower of the Messiah and we made Ruach Israel our home as newlyweds.
In 2008 Raina and I accepted the call to raise financial support in order to pursue full-time Messianic Jewish ministry. With God’s help, I completing my rabbinical studies at the Messianic Jewish Theological Institute (MJTI) and received Rabbinical ordination by the Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations (UMJC) and the Messianic Jewish Rabbinical Council (MJRC) in 2012. Now, we prayerfully ask those with a heart for the Jewish people to partner with us toward our mission to lead a Jewish awakening in Yeshua.
Our mission is to build a vibrant movement of Jewish people who love Yeshua (Jesus). Think of it like building a home for Yeshua in the heart of our Jewish people.
But we can’t do it alone. We need your help.
