No experience necessary

God calls Jeremiah to be a prophet to the nations; before he was born. Jeremiah tells God that he is only a boy and that he cannot speak. God’s not interested in his excuses. When we apply for a job, we usually have to hand in a resume to show our prospective employer that we have the experience, skills and knowledge necessary to do the job. It’s different with God. He calls us before we’re even born. This means He calls us before we have any experience, skills or knowledge. Like Jeremiah God tells us we simply need to be willing. He will enable and empower us to do whatever He calls us to do. Family Update Gita and Reva are actively preparing for Cross Country and JROTC. Ravi has been accepted to take classes this Fall Semester at USF in Tampa. Asha will fly out of Syracuse tonight at 5:00 PM where she will meet her friend Elisa in Israel.

Should Israel give up the Temple for peace?

A few years ago when I went to Israel, Hillel (our tour guide) told us that Israel’s leaders will never give up the Western Wall (of the Jerusalem Temple). It is proof that we’ve lived there in the past, but it also reminds us of our future. When he said this, God told me the Wall is a stump . What do you know about a tree stump? If you have any ideas how the Wall is a stump I invite you to post them on my FB page at: This Saturday I will speak at Shoresh David in Tampa and teach about this. If you live in Tampa Bay, come out to hear me speak. If you can’t be there, watch the service on FB Live at: Rabbi Ron Speaks July 20 – Shoresh David, Tampa, FL Go to my Events Calendar at to find out more details. Family Update Gita, Reva and I (Ron) visited Annapolis; The Naval Academy and The Citadel. The Citadel is very expensive, but we all liked it. Last week

Invite Rabbi Ron to bring Israel to you

This week in Binghamton, NY I served as a Messianic Jewish Tour Guide and showed people some of the treasures of Jerusalem. People were engaged asking questions and sharing comments. We learned how the Western Wall in Jerusalem serves as a stump. What is a stump, how can the Wall serve as a stump, and what lesson can we all learn from this? I included 2 songs, and I’ll be adding an opportunity for people to place their prayer requests in the Wall. Most people will not get an opportunity to board a plane and go to Israel, so I encourage you to invite me to be your Tour Guide and bring Israel to you. Contact me so we can talk about this.
