Rabbi Ron serves as President of Shelanu TV, the only 24.7, Hebrew language TV channel sharing the message of Yeshua. He also serves as the Israel Director for God TV, where he hosts two TV shows—Out of Zion and Get Real. Ron was born into a Jewish home, circumcised and Bar Mitzvah'd, but he did not know God! He realized at age 17, there must be more. This led him on a journey where he discovered that Yeshua (Jesus), whom I thought was for the Gentiles, was in fact, the Jewish Messiah.
He received his degree from
Messiah Biblical Institute and recently obtained his master's in theology from
the King's University. Rabbi Ron served
as the Associate Rabbi at Beth Messiah Messianic Congregation in Rockville, MD
until his family moved to Odesa, Ukraine to work at the Messianic Jewish Bible
Institute. In Ukraine, they birthed a congregation in Bedichev, the city upon
which Fiddler on the Roof was based. They then moved to Budapest, Hungary.
In 1999, they accepted an invitation to teach Jewish Roots at the Brownsville Revival School of Ministry. In 2003, Ron and his wife Elana, a native Israeli, along with their girls, made aliyah (moved to Israel). He served as the co-pastor and interim senior pastor of the King of Kings Community in Jerusalem.
During this time, they birthed
the Isaiah 2 Initiative, taking Israeli young adults to third-world nations to
preach the message of Yeshua. In Nigeria, we saw many miracles, and tens of
thousands profess faith in Yeshua.
In 2013, Ron agreed to become the lead pastor of Tiferet Yeshua, a Hebrew-speaking congregation in Tel Aviv. Three years later, they turned the congregation over to a native-born Israeli, and while still functioning as an elder there.
In 2020, GOD TV partnered with
several Messianic Israeli leaders to birth Shelanu TV. Ron was asked to become
