Rabbi Ron Cantor Returns

I had a chance to speak with Rabbi Ron a few months ago. Here is some info about him:

Rabbi Ron serves as President of Shelanu TV, the only 24.7, Hebrew language TV channel sharing the message of Yeshua.  He also serves as the Israel Director for God TV, where he hosts two TV shows—Out of Zion and Get Real.  Ron was born into a Jewish home, circumcised and Bar Mitzvah'd, but he did not know God!  He realized at age 17, there must be more. This led him on a journey where he discovered that Yeshua (Jesus), whom I thought was for the Gentiles, was in fact, the Jewish Messiah.

He received his degree from Messiah Biblical Institute and recently obtained his master's in theology from the King's University.  Rabbi Ron served as the Associate Rabbi at Beth Messiah Messianic Congregation in Rockville, MD until his family moved to Odesa, Ukraine to work at the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute. In Ukraine, they birthed a congregation in Bedichev, the city upon which Fiddler on the Roof was based. They then moved to Budapest, Hungary.

In 1999, they accepted an invitation to teach Jewish Roots at the Brownsville Revival School of Ministry. In 2003, Ron and his wife Elana, a native Israeli, along with their girls, made aliyah (moved to Israel). He served as the co-pastor and interim senior pastor of the King of Kings Community in Jerusalem.

During this time, they birthed the Isaiah 2 Initiative, taking Israeli young adults to third-world nations to preach the message of Yeshua. In Nigeria, we saw many miracles, and tens of thousands profess faith in Yeshua.

In 2013, Ron agreed to become the lead pastor of Tiferet Yeshua, a Hebrew-speaking congregation in Tel Aviv. Three years later, they turned the congregation over to a native-born Israeli, and while still functioning as an elder there.

In 2020, GOD TV partnered with several Messianic Israeli leaders to birth Shelanu TV. Ron was asked to become the president.

Lori Kate Lowenhar returns

It's been many years since I last interviewed Lori.   She is an amazing woman and will share how life is in Israel since the tragic events that recently took place.  Plus we will hear some of her music from One Lev, her wonderful singing group.

Originally from Elkhart, Indiana, Lori grew up playing the flute and clarinet. She graduated with a Music Education degree from Cedarville University and began traveling internationally performing Jewish Gospel Music with the Liberated Wailing Wall. Upon moving to Israel, her musical training allowed her to teach a variety of instruments to students in various schools in the Jezre'el Valley.

Lori Kate has now been living in Israel for more than 25 years. She's part of an amazingly talented trio, playing clarinet in the musical group, One Lev.
