Earlier this week I had the opportunity to chat with Myriam Levy Chernoff, wife of Joel Chernoff and VP of the Messianic Alliance of Mexico. We had a great conversation and she shared her story of coming to faith in Yeshua.
Myriam was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. She came from a
broken family, her mother left when she and her siblings were small
children. This suffering caused her to want nothing to do with God, she
had no interest at all in Him.
in 1992, when she was 21 years old, a friend of her father’s invited
them to a Messianic Synagogue. Levy Chernoff says, “It was there that I
knew for the first time that God loved me and that He had plans for my
life, my heart was deeply touched, and I learned about who Yeshua was
and why we need a Messiah, and my life was transformed. The best thing
that has happened to me is to have given my life to Yeshua!!!”
soon after she also understood her call to share this beautiful message
with her Jewish people, and since then that has been her priority in
life! In the years since that fateful visit to a Messianic Synagogue her
life living in Mexico has been about sharing Yeshua with the Jewish
community. After becoming a believer in 1992, she became a member of the
Yeshua Ben David Messianic Synagogue in Guadalajara and she worked as a
real estate agent.
becoming a believer she became a member of the Messianic Jewish
Alliance of Mexico (AJMM). Later she became a part of the leadership and
has served a few times she president of the organization. Levy Chernoff
currently serves the AJMM as vice president.
1992 (every 3 months) Levy Chernoff has written articles for the
magazine “Chalutzim," the official voice of the Messianic Jewish
Alliance of Mexico, which can be read at www.ajmm.org.mx.
1992, she began to attend “Mashiach” (the Messiah Conference), the
National Conference of the AJMM and has never missed one since!
1997, she became a vice president of the International Messianic Jewish
Alliance (IMJA), and is still serving at the moment as one of the vice
2000, she went to Israel and worked as a volunteer for a few weeks in
Ebenezer Home in Haifa, which is a home for elderly people that are
2007, she visited Argentina, and for two months she shared about
Messiah every day with Jewish non-believers. I gave each of them a book
from Rabbi Paul Liberman, who at that time was was the Executive
Director of the IMJA. It was a wonderful experience, most of those she
ministered to were very open to know about Yeshua. She is still in
communication with all of them, some have since become believers!
In 2015, she married Joel Chernoff, the General Secretary of the MJAA, and she is thankful to God to be so blessed!
