Eli and Vanessa Ben-Moshe

If you've been around the Messianic movement for awhile, then you remember the early days with the music group Israel's Hope.  Marc Chopinsky was a founding member of that group and has gone to his eternal rest.   His son Eli has picked up the torch and produces wonderful Israeli worship music through the Ashira Project.  I had a great interview with Eli and his wife Vanessa and this program features some of the music from Ashira.

Babette Biddlecombe Interview

A few weeks ago I had a great chat with Jonathan Biddlecombe, only to find out that his wife, Babette has an equally fascinating testimony!   I am very happy to share her story here.

Rev./Dr. Babette C. DuPlessis-Biddlecombe’s greatest desire is to see the name of the Lord lifted up, His Kingdom extended on this earth and His righteousness, truth and justice established. Seeing people healed, delivered, set free, and discipled for their calling is very important to her.

Dr. Babette grew up in South Africa where she preached and assisted in missions. As a teen-ager she wrestled with her faith in Jesus/Yeshua; trying to understand her Jewish roots and how God could use her as a woman. After graduation, she studied art, psychology and biblical studies and worked as a graphic designer for many years while being involved in social issues. She married Jonathan in 1986 in a Messianic Congregation and open her own Art studio once their first child was born. She also served in ministry in various capacities: administrative, preaching, teaching life skills to many who were oppressed by the apartheid system, designing as well as being the assistant editor of a Christian newspaper. She coordinated the opening and management of an orphanage for street children and witnessed many miracles along the way.

At the age of 36, Dr. Babette, her husband and two children moved to Dallas, Texas after an offer of a tuition scholarship at Christ for the Nations. There she completed her three-year practical theology and pastoral studies. She was also licensed and ordained, interned in Chaplaincy at the Dallas men’s prisons and at a private mental institution. After graduation, her family moved to Tulsa, OK to intern with the Osborn’s ministry and began the immigration process while continuing their education. They met Bishop LaDonna Osborn and Pastor Chyanna Mull-Anthony in their first year of studies, and the impact these women of God had on her life as a woman in ministry would be everlasting.

Dr. Babette founded Eagles Glide International Ministries in 2004 and started a Messianic Congregation, Beth Shalom, with her husband Jonathan. They also opened a Bible college, distribute Bibles and Biblical books, and are working on the opening of a Safehouse for abused women and children. They both manage their own graphic design and web development, Smart Art, and are working on a health food product that Whole Foods Market is interested in retailing. Her husband is working on his PhD in Hebraic studies, and their children are both studying and serving the Lord. Pastor Babette also takes time out to paint whenever she can.

Dr. Babette has a B.A. in Practical Theology, as well as a M.TH and her PhD is in Religious Education. Her main research is in biblical equality and understanding the Biblical Hebraic Roots of our faith.

Rick Heller Interview

 It was fun chatting with Rick Heller today.  In his own words:


I am a devoted follower and lover of Yeshua (Jesus), my Messiah. I am a husband, a father, a grandfather and even a great-grandfather by marriage. I have several degrees, including a bachelor’s in psychology and a master’s in human resources. I have had many careers,  including: the Navy Nuclear Field, carpentry, computer instructor, and nursing in various capacities.

I still wonder what I want to be when I grow up. Not really. I have had many titles, but my favorite one was given to me by a friend, whose anointing I’ve always admired. She once said to me that she saw me as a friend of God.  I don’t deserve such a title, but it resonates in my heart. I can only hope.

Sherry, my wife, and I have made our home in Florida for the last eleven years.  We have a beautiful (if somewhat headstrong) dog, a Whoodle, named Maxi. He brings a lot of love, comfort and challenges into our home.

Like everyone else, we have our ups and downs and times when life goes sideways. But we love the Lord. He is the foundation of our life and marriage. Life can be hard enough with Him. We don’t ever want to be without him.

I am a sinner saved by grace, the unmerited favor of God, which I could never earn or deserve. It is in Yeshua, Jesus, my Lord and Savior, that I place my trust. When you read these stories, I hope you can catch a glimpse of His love for you.


Here is a link to his book:

Itzhak Shapira-2

Today's pre-recorded program features an interview with Rabbi Itzhak Shapira.   It's been awhile since he was on the show.   Here is a little background:

Tzahi (Itzhak) Shapira was born and raised in a traditional Sephardic Jewish home in Israel. After years of studying Rabbinic Jewish texts, he found the Messiah within the Hebrew writings. Far from a study of kosher dietary laws, The Return of the Kosher Pig is an unprecedented journey toward the true identity of the Divine Messiah - the one previously considered "unkosher" and "unacceptable" by Jewish people. This encyclopedic volume will surprise and challenge you with the compelling words of Jewish sages and rabbis over the last 2,000 years, many in English for the first time. Rabbi Shapira serves as the as the founding rabbi of Ahavat Ammi, an international Jewish organization that is focused on reconciliation between Jews and Yeshua.


His newest book is The Besorah according to Covid-19.   Find more info at www.goodnewscovi19.net.

Liz Stout Interview

Many years ago I was privileged to attend Shabbat services with the Herman family in Rochester, NY.   They produced three wonderful children, all grown now, and today I played a pre-recorded interview with their daughter, Liz Stout.   It's been so wonderful watching her grow up into a strong woman of God.  

Liz was raised in Rochester, New York in a Messianic Jewish family. She always knew the Lord, but only dedicated her life to Him on her 18th birthday. She received her BA in religion and philosophy from Roberts Wesleyan College. She moved to Israel in 2005 in order to study for an MA in education at Tel Aviv University, where she met her husband Simon. For much of the last decade, Liz has been an elementary school teacher at a private Christian school. However, in mid-2019, she joined the Jews for Jesus family and now serves missionary in Jerusalem. Liz has a heart to see children come to know the Lord in a deep way, and to see them actively serving in their community. Liz asks that you please pray with her for the children whom she serves, that they will “dedicate their lives to the Lord and know His voice!” Liz and Simon currently reside in Jerusalem and have two young children.

Mindy Chernoff Interview

Mindy grew up in a Jewish home and found her Messiah.  She has the most fascinating story.  No horsing around here.....:-)

Mindy Chernoff, MA, provides a novel and innovative approach to healing, using horses as a context for promoting self-esteem and a sense of competence with children and adults of diverse backgrounds. With over 50 years experience with horses and 28+ years in addiction recovery, she brings mindfulness into play with her clients, all the while interacting with horses and the peaceful environment. In her experience with both children and adults, she uses animals to foster personal growth and transformation. Within a safe environment, which she has called “The Resonant Horse,” together with the horse, she explores areas of resistance, fear, discomfort, love and acceptance. Mindy feels every life lesson can be learned in the barn.

Mindy’s primary goal is to build upon each individual’s positive traits, encouraging a sense of calm, contentment, and freedom to let go. Her sessions vary in length and focus, depending on the needs and desires of the client.

Horses, in particular, evoke a strong sense of authenticity in those who interact with them, and in the horse’s environment a client is inclined to slow down, notice, feel and heal. By being in close proximity to horses, under the supervision of a trained mentor, stress levels often diminish. One typically experiences deep levels of inner awareness of his/her feelings and desires.

Mindy is a published writer and has facilitated workshops for diverse audiences, such as teenage unwed mothers, and with the Archdiocese of Wilmington. She has also presented workshops at Pendle Hill and at an International Conference in Chicago. Her post graduate training includes study in mindfulness meditation and executive leadership training.

When not attending to clients, Mindy can be found riding “Viton” her Pinto Congress two-time champion.

Ron Gitelman Interview

I had the pleasure of speaking with Ron Gitelman last month and am excited to share the interview with you today!   Enjoy fabulous music too!

In Ron's own words:

" I was born in Denver and moved with my parents to Fayetteville Arkansas shortly afterwards. We were one of very few Jewish families in a university town that today has grown significantly. I had many Christian friends who would share the Good News with me and at 16 made an initial commitment to Yeshua. However I fell away from that commitment but in my freshman year of college at LSU I recommitted asking Yeshua to show me He is real. Since then I helped build a student led Bible Study at LSU that is still going strong today. I moved to San Francisco and became involved with Jews For Jesus and went on staff for two years before realizing that wasn't my calling. After moving around I settled in New Haven CT and after a divorce that caused much pain God brought my current wife into the picture just over a year later. I started attending Congregation Simchat Yisrael in 1998 and became an elder in 2001. I have been serving as President since 2010 a position which I will be turning over in 2021. My wife and I have been married for 20 years and have 3 wonderful children and are fierce advocates for Messianic Judaism."

Rabbi EricTeitelman

Welcome back!   I am still pre-recording these shows from home until a) the Pandemic slows way down or b) my board operator (Peter) is recovered from Covid and able to come back to the station.   Please keep him in your prayers.

Today I aired an interview with Rabbi Eric Teitelman.   Here is some info about him:

Pastor (Rabbi) Eric Michael Teitelman is a Jewish Christian and follower of Yeshua. He is ordained as a bi-vocational pastor with the Southern Baptist Convention and is also a worship leader and photographer. He was born in Chicago to Jewish Ashkenazi parents and raised in Bat Yam, Israel for much of his childhood. There he attended Yeshiva Aderet, an orthodox school for rabbinical study.

In 2002 after reading the New Testament, Eric received Yeshua as His Lord and Savior. With a firm knowledge of Old and New Testament scripture and a deep understanding of Jewish culture and rabbinic writings, he brings a unique perspective to his teachings.

Pastor Eric oversees the House of David Ministries—a teaching, worship, and creative arts ministry, focused on building the Kingdom of God by bringing Jew and Gentile Christians together as one new man in Christ Yeshua (Ephesians 2:14-16).

I know you will love the music today -- I am featuring a NEW song from Ted Pearce called "Reign!"

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
