I have known Eliot Katz for many years. He and his wife Claude were on Bagels and Blessings over 15 years ago and it was wonderful to reconnect.
Eliot Katz is a retired attorney and active real estate investor who was raised in a Reform Jewish household and became Bar Mitzah at 13. He has an interfaith marriage with his wife of 39 years, Claude. Eliot had been at times an atheist, at times an agnostic, and at times simply a cultural Jew. He came to the Lord and accepted Yeshua late in life 19 years ago. He is thankful to Congregation Shema Yisrael and Rabbi Jim Appel for this. Eliot is the father of four children, all adopted from the Far East. All of his children are young adults and he is pleased that all four of his children are believers and have relationships with the Lord. Eliot is also a grandfather with three grandsons and one granddaughter. As a Messianic Jew, Eliot is part of the Adult Sunday School Teaching Team at the Rochester Chinese Christian Church. He says that the Lord has a sense of humor in placing this “Jew Born Anew” with a Chinese church that has supported his youngest daughter from China from the time that she came to the U.S. at 12.
I know you will enjoy the music too!
