I first interviewed Rabbi Eric Tokajer 4 years ago and decided to re-air it on Saturday March 30. Rabbi Eric was the editor of The Messianic Daily News website. That website was updated daily with news that pertained to the Messianic Jewish people. Since the induction of that website in 2006, the website grew rapidly. In the beginning of 2012 the Messianic Daily News began merging with the Messianic Times. This merger was completed in July of 2013. Since this merger the Messianic Times website has over 30,000 hits a month from over 100 countries.
Raised in a traditional Jewish home, Rabbi Tokajer began study the
Hebrew scriptures closely and questioned much of what he had been
taught. When unable to get answers from his rabbis, he became agnostic.
While serving in the United States Navy, Rabbi Tokajer challenged a
believer in Yeshua to study the scriptures with him until he found the
answers within them. During this time of study, Rabbi Tokajer accepted
Yeshua as his promised Messiah of Israel.
Now, thirty-one years later, he is an ordained Rabbi of the
International Alliance of Messianic Congregations and Synagogues
(IAMCS). He has helped to establish five congregations across the Gulf
Coast including Slidell, Louisiana, Pascagoula, Mississippi; Foley and
Spanish Fort, Alabama; and Pensacola, Florida. He has served as Rabbi
of the Tree of Life Messianic Congregation in Mobile, Alabama and is
currently the Messianic Rabbi of Brit Ahm Messianic Synagogue in
