Brett Weiner Interview

I was once a Weiner too -- back in the early days LOL.   I met Brett over Facebook and he agreed to share his faith journey on Bagels and Blessings.  You'll enjoy some music honoring Yom Hashoah (Day of Remembrance) and the Israeli Independence Day too.   Lots of great music.  And here's a little bit about Brett:

Brett was raised Christian, but his grandparents were Orthodox Jews. When Brett was in his twenties, the Psalms and the prayer book pronouns became personal to him.  He was told that Abraham would have descendants that would be as numerous as the stars in heaven, and the sands on the seashore and that he could be one of them. He just needed to accept his seed which was one in the Messiah. He loves celebrating the Jewish holidays, especially the Feast of Tabernacles. 

Brett and his wife reside in West Springfield Massachusetts and have two adult sons who walk with the Lord.
