You have surely heard about the events that took place recently in Israel. I am not referring to the rockets which Hamas was shooting into Israel, but rather to our Arab neighbors (mainly from Muslim backgrounds) who suddenly took to rioting in usually quiet Israeli towns and neighborhoods. Those involved in the riots and violent… Read more »

I.D.ENTITY

Who am I? Most people ask this question at one time or another. We hide behind a fence that builds a ghetto around us. Moroccan, Yemenite, Brazilian, Argentinian, Ethiopian, American, Afro-American and so on. These associations come from the areas where we grew up and the culture within them. Even in the time of Yeshua… Read more »

An Expectancy of Community

Ever since I became a believer in Yeshua, I have had an expectancy of the community of faith becoming like the first-century congregation in Acts 2. In such a congregational fellowship, the connection between people is not only emotional but also spiritual. There is a lifestyle of giving to, investing in, and building up one… Read more »

Crude Oil/Tar Spill Damaging Israel’s Whole Coastline

Over the last few days, black tar has washed up all along the shores of Israel from Ashkelon in the south all the way to the Lebanese border at Rosh Hanikra, causing damage to sea animals and ecosystems.

Bite your Tongue?

There is much in the Word of God relating to the tongue. From James 3:1-12, we see how the tongue, as small as it is, has such a profound effect. It is like a bit in a horse’s mouth, like the rudder of a ship and like the flame of a single match that is… Read more »

Begin the Change

I was born and raised in the city of Akko. As a young boy, due to a fever, I lost 80% of my hearing. Because of this, I was labeled by teachers and ridiculed by children. As I think back on that difficult time, I realize that if you want to change yourself or the… Read more »
