Elyse grew up in the 1950s and 1960s in New York City. Her Jewish parents were secular and didn’t raise her in the faith. When she was in college, she started searching for meaning in life and truth. She came to the Lord Yeshua as a hippie during The Jesus Revolution. As she grew in The Lord, she started to appreciate how significant the Judaic roots are to Christianity. She now strongly identifies with her Jewish roots as a Messianic Jew. Elyse lives in Hawaii and is a very talented artist. Find her art projects here:

I met Elyse a very long time ago when I visited family in Hawaii. I was looking to connect with other Messianic believers and got her contact info. We have stayed in touch over the years. I first interviewed her at the Messiah Conference maybe 10 years ago, so this is a nice refresher!
You will love her story and of course the great music too! Here's a little more about Elyse:
