Happy to re-air this interview from 2016. Here is a little bit about Jonathan Bernis:
Not only was Rabbi Jonathan the founding Rabbi of my own congregation here in Rochester, NY, Congregation Shema Yisrael, but also Jonathan is President and CEO of Jewish Voice Ministries International (JVMI) and has been a leader in Messianic Jewish ministry for more than 30 years. He hosts JVMI’s weekly syndicated television show, “Jewish Voice with Jonathan Bernis,” aired worldwide.
Jewish Voice exists to transform lives and help fulfill the biblical mandate to see all Israel be saved. The ministries’ mission is to proclaim the Gospel, grow the Messianic Jewish community, and engage the Church concerning Israel and the Jewish people.
Rabbi Bernis is a sought-after speaker and a popular radio and TV guest. He has authored numerous books, including Unlocking the Prophetic Mysteries of Israel and his best-selling “Rabbi” series.
In addition to Jewish Voice Ministries, Jonathan is also the founder of Heritage LA, which is an interfaith Jewish community committed to creating space for all types of believers across the city of Los Angeles.
While Jonathan lives in Phoenix, Arizona with his wife, Elisangela, and their two daughters, he has a heart for the Los Angeles area and is excited to see Jewish and interfaith families thrive in the Heritage Community!
