Elizabeth Appel Interview
A wonderful talk with our Rabbi's daughter. Born into a believing household in Rochester, New York, Elizabeth has been in the Messianic movement since she was 11 years old and is currently serving as the Administrative Assistant at Congregation Shema Yisrael, located in Rochester.
Elizabeth will be talking about her victory over depression and anxiety and her journey back to faith. Diagnosed at the age of 17 with clinical depression and anxiety disorder, she spent the next 14 years on medication, and for several years was unable to leave her house. During that time, she also walked away from her faith and turned her back on any belief in God's love or redemptive power.
She eventually found her way back to God, and in the process was completely healed of the depression and anxiety. She has been medication free for 6 years and enjoys a vibrant relationship with Yeshua.
