In his early twenties Ariel Blumenthal was a Zen Buddhist living in Tokyo, Japan.  In 1992 he met some Korean Christians in Japan and had a dramatic encounter with the crucified and risen Yeshua. Since then Ariel has served in ministry in the US, Israel and the Far East. 


Ariel has a passion for seeing the One New Man come into being—the universal church of Jew & Gentile, Israel and the nations.  He has taught widely and also written much on the subject. Ariel speaks English, Hebrew and Japanese fluently; and is conversant in, and reads, Mandarin Chinese.    


Ariel and his wife Vered are co-pastors of the Ahavat Yeshua Hebrew speaking congregation in downtown Jerusalem—where they also live with their 4 children.
