Congregation Tiferet Yeshua,
“If we are going to reach Israelis, we have to do it in Hebrew.” This was the vision driving Ari and Shira Sorko-Ram in 1995 to birth Tiferet Yeshua (Yeshua’s Glory). At the time, there were no Spirit-filled congregations in Israel operating exclusively in Hebrew.
Most Israelis don’t know the Jewish Roots of Yeshua, and therefore assume that to believe in Him is to leave Judaism—to sacrifice their identity and heritage. God was birthing a congregation that would boldly proclaim the Gospel, but do it in a way that exudes the fact that we are Israelis.
In February 2013, after leading the congregation for 18 years, Ari and Shira asked Asher Intrater to serve as the senior pastor and Ron Cantor to be the executive pastor. Both Asher and Ron have a long friendship with Ari and Shira and Maoz Israel. You can see many of Ron’s teaching videos, read his blogs and listen to his weekly podcast on the Maoz site.
Ron shares, "I remember talking with Asher in a parking lot in Gaithersburg, Maryland, over twenty years ago during the Feast of Tabernacles, where we dreamed of one day serving together in Israel. Now it is happening. I deeply share Asher's passion for revival and raising up leaders."
Today Tiferet Yeshua is a vibrant community of Israeli believers.
- We have nearly 30 Israelis in our monthly leadership training
- Four anointed worship leaders (with more in training)
- A new believers' class, youth group and young adults ministry
- In 2013 we immersed 10 Israelis in the waters of the Mediterranean Sea!
Asher, Ron, and our team of elders are asking God for revival in Tel Aviv. Would you consider standing with us by becoming a monthly partner or giving a special gift to Tiferet Yeshua Congregation? You can have a direct impact on what God is doing in the miraculously restored nation of Israel. Thank you.
