At Long Last -- Rabbi Jan Rosenberg

I have tried to have Rabbi Jan on air with me so many times -- he is a VERY busy man!  But recently we were both at the Messianic Leaders Roundtable (MLR) in Phoenix, and he finally agreed to sit down with me and record an interview!

Rabbi Jan has been actively involved in the Messianic Jewish movement for well over 40 years. In January 1993, he and his wife Marlene became leaders at Beth Zion Messianic Synagogue in Jackson, New Jersey after serving for 16 years as members of the internationally known Messianic singing group, Kol Simcha (Hebrew for Sound of Joy). They were also members of Congregation Beth Yeshua in Philadelphia, PA for nearly 20 years, serving in various leadership capacities.
Jan was born and raised in a Conservative Jewish home in northern New Jersey. In his high school years, he and his brothers began to move towards a more observant Jewish lifestyle.
In his quest for an intimate personal relationship with the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, Jan found himself deeply involved in a powerful series of unusual events that ultimately led him to the realization that Yeshua was indeed the long awaited Messiah of his people.
After coming into a knowledge of Messiah in 1971, then in 1975, Jan moved back to Philadelphia, where he began to attend Congregation Beth Yeshua. That same summer, while attending Messiah ’75, a clear vision of Messianic Judaism was deeply sown into his heart.
After years of intensive personal study, and Messianic Yeshiva courses, Jan received his full smikhah (ordination) as a Messianic Rabbi through the International Alliance of Messianic Congregations & Synagogues (IAMCS) towards the end of the 1990s.
Jan is also the publisher of the very popular Passover Trilogy Messianic Haggadah, (in English and Spanish), and started the Lashon Hara-Free Zone button campaign (to stop gossip, slander and the evil tongue). He has also published the Word As A Way of Life Bible Reading Program, with his brother David (Messianic Rabbi of Congregation Shuvah Yisrael in East Wiliston, NY).
.Jan is also an accomplished singer/songwriter, and since coming to Beth Zion, has produced six musical CDs. With a wide-ranging gift for musical storytelling, he shares the truth of Yeshua through Jewish eyes in word and song (available at iTunes and RabbiJan.com). 
 
Enjoy a special program featuring many of his wonderful songs!

Suzy Linett Interview

What a pleasure to speak with this sweet lady from Southern California.   You'll love hearing how she came to know Yeshua and will also enjoy some great Chanukah music!!

Suzy Linett was born into a Jewish family and grew up on the East Coast before the family moved to southern California in 1967.  She attended local synagogues as she pursued her education and obtained a degree in occupational therapy from the University of Southern California.  At the time of this writing, she continues to work in that field providing services for children with special needs.  She met evangelical friends and accepted her Messiah and Lord in 1981.  Ms. Linett pursued her Bible education both in her local church and through online studies.  She became an active member of a local Messianic Jewish Synagogue in 1994 and was involved in leadership and teaching until that congregation dissolved.  In 2009, she joined Calvary Faith Center Foursquare Church in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, and pursued ministerial credentials obtaining her U.S. license in 2012 and ordination in 2014.  Currently, she serves on staff as a teacher at that church and is also is the leader of Kehilat Emunah, a Messianic ministry designed to bring Jewish and Gentile believers together in understanding of the whole Word of GOD.  Ms. Linett is the author of Mattityahu-Gift from God, a study of the Gospel of Matthew from a Hebraic perspective and is a speaker at churches and Messianic Synagogues.

Pastor Sam & Heather Walker

What would you do if your house and all your possessions burned down?   I recently met Pastor Sam & Heather Walker from Paradise, California .  Pastor Sam leads Congregation Harei Yeshua in Paradise, CA. The Walkers lost their home in the recent fires and are still praising the Lord. Their life has been turned upside down yet they still want to serve Adonai with their whole heart. At this time they are waiting to find out if their building and Torah scroll are safe. Our prayers are with them and all the families that were affected by the raging fires.

UPDATE:  The building and Torah Scroll were saved!  Hallelujah!

I had the opportunity to interview Pastor Sam and Heather recently when we attended a Messianic Leaders Training in Phoenix, Arizona.

If you want to donate to help the Walkers, please do so here:

Sherri Friedlander Interview

Nothing happens by coincidence!   I went to a women's retreat in Savannah and "happened" to sit at the same table as Sherri Friedlander and her two adorable daughters.   I learned about "The Strong Road" radio program, hosted by Sherri, her husband and a friend and we had a wonderful time of fellowship.

Besides The Strong Road they are founders of Be One Ministries.  

https://www.beonetoday.com/

Here is their story in their own words:
 

Our journey together began at the University of Georgia. We met and dated throughout college and were married a month after graduation. We each received a BS in Hospitality Management in 1990. After graduation, we dedicated the first year of our marriage to a leadership program called Master's Commission in Phoenix, Arizona. We both received a Christian Worker's License and since, I (Jeff) received an ordination by both the Assembly of God International Fellowship as a minister and the International Alliance of Messianic Congregation and Synagogues (IAMCS) as a Messianic Rabbi.

We have worked hard to build our life together with a dedication to full-time service for the Kingdom of God. We have 4 children, Morgan, Ben, Amanda, and Rachel, who we raised to have a passion for God and a  joy in their spirit. Our dinner table has always been filled with laughter, endless movie quotes and an extra seat for the many guests who have joined us.

Be One Ministries was born out of our desire to be a voice of unity in the Body of Messiah. We see the enemy has a plan to divide the body and we strive to do everything we can to stop that. 


Sherri grew up in a Gentile home, came to love the Jewish people and together she and her husband Jeff have a great ministry together.   Hear her wonderful story and enjoy the music of Marty Goetz, Sally Klein O'Connor, Joshua Aaron, Rachel Boskey,Corry Bell, Marty Goetz, Baht Rivka Whitten, Jonathan Settel and The Scheps.
