We are a Christian Zionist ministry whose vision is to build an alliance between Christians and Jews, Israel and the USA.
We teach about our Hebraic roots and work to connect Christians to Israel and their biblical faith.
Rev. Rosemary Schindler Garlow, relative of Oskar Schindler, shares her experiences and archives from being part of the Schindler legacy that includes Oskar’s successful efforts to save more than 1200 Jewish lives in the face of Nazi genocide. She is continuing the family’s heritage and message through Schindler’s Ark International.
Schindler’s Ark’s purpose is to be a bridge of support between Christians and Jews, the USA and Israel. As a Christian Zionist, Rosemary, together with Holocaust survivors and their descendants,....Some of their stated goals...
- To promote...unity between Christians and Jews...
- ...to demonstrate our biblical mandate of Israel’s natural and spiritual restoration, and to prepare the way for Messiah’s coming.
- To be the branches, the “Notzrim”, Hebrew for Christians, who are grafted into the Olive Tree of Israel, having returned to our Jewish, biblical roots.
- To volunteer to serve the brave men and women of the IDF and the farmers in Israel’s Heartland. ...You can volunteer to plant, prune and harvest in Judea and Samaria by farming with the Waller family restoring the crops and cattle to the mountains of Israel.
- To participate in raising funds for ... the persecuted Christians in the Middle East and congregations of Believers and biblical causes.
The Knesset Christian Allies Caucus is a caucus within the Israeli Knesset that seeks to build a direct line of communication, cooperation and coordination between the Knesset and Christian leaders around the world. Josh Reinstein serves as the Caucus Director....
Launched in 2004, Knesset Christian Allies Caucus inspired a network of Israel Allies Caucuses in over 25 parliaments around the world.[Who would all be very upset with Israel if it came down on missionary activity.] Today, the Israel Allies Foundation serves as the umbrella organization helping coordinate the work of these various caucuses into a unified pro-Israel voice. (Source)[It's just another part of GoguMagog.]
The mission of the Knesset Christian Allies Caucus is to build direct lines of communication, cooperation and coordination between the Knesset and Christian leaders around the world. We strive to establish relationships between the members of Knesset and leaders of Churches, Christian organizations and political representatives throughout the globe. [There is that "relationship" thing again.] The Knesset Christian Allies Caucus has attracted an increasingly diverse and growing number of Christian leaders globally.
The Caucus works with Christians who support Israel alongside those who are undecided on their position towards Israel. Many Christians recognize that their belief in the Bible connects them to the land and the people of Israel. On this basis, we work together to achieve our goals.
Goals and Caveats
To recognize the contribution that Christians in America, Europe and around the world are making to the security of the State of Israel and to the welfare of the Jewish people.
To bring to the attention of the population of Israel the unqualified support Christians have given, and continue to give, to Jewish aspirations in the Holy Land.[1 and 2 to make Jews feel beholden to them.]
To provide Christians in Israel with assistance in dealing with the red tape and bureaucratic issues that may arise.
To reach out to all Christians in order to mobilize political support for Israel.
The Caucus refuses alliances with any group that actively pursues the conversion of Jews to Christianity. [But, not to "Messianic Judaism".]
The Caucus refuses cooperation with any group that regards terrorism as a legitimate form of freedom fighting.
The Roots of Judaism and Christianity in Israel
Israel is the birthplace of Christianity and Judaism and within this land lies the testament and the truth of our shared past. As history is displayed throughout Israel’s archeological landmarks, so is the story of our common Judeo-Christian values. The values of ethical monotheism, on which our precious systems of morality are based, can be found in our shared roots and history in the Land of Israel."

With high-profile Christian speakers from the United States and Jerusalem, a sold-out Israel Summit Conference drew 1,700 Bible-believing supporters to Colorado this week while launching a ministry that organizers predict will grow into a global solidarity movement of Jews and non-Jews.
Israel-loving Christians and Messianic believers from the United States, Brazil, Pakistan, Sweden, Australia and India filled Resurrection Fellowship Church's worship auditorium in Loveland as FIRM, the Fellowship of Israel Related Ministries, launched. A global online audience also joined the conference.
FIRM formed in 2014 with 20 Christian leaders signing on as board members under the leadership of Jerusalem-based pastor Wayne Hilsden. He, current Resurrection Fellowship Senior Pastor Jonathan Wiggins and Resurrection Fellowship's former pastor, John Stocker, forged friendships around Israel and the congregation Hilsden leads, King of Kings Community in Jerusalem.
Hilsden introduced the new ministry on the opening night of the Loveland conference, calling the summit "historic." Wiggins and other leaders echoed the sentiment, saying FIRM's formation and plans represent "history in the making."
"FIRM," Hilsden said, "is a global fellowship of biblically grounded believers committed to cultivating Messiah-centered relationships to bless the inhabitants of Israel (Jew and non-Jew) and the Jewish community worldwide."[Continues HERE.]
"Young ultra-orthodox who felt the need to protest at the FIRM (Fellowship of Israel Related Ministries) conference tonight in Jerusalem. Shouts of 'meshumed' (traitor) towards the Messianic Jews in attendance brought sadness to my heart, but reinvigorated my spirit to pray as Sha'ul did for 'all Israel' to meet Messiah, Yeshua and experience eternal and abundant life!"He can be seen HERE laying tefillin, knowing he is either an apostate from Judaism or not a Jew at all as he says he was raised in a "Messianic home", i.e. his parents were already xians. Sick!
People SAY "We want Mashiach". NO THEY DON'T. Because when Mashiach REALLY arrives, he is not going to pat people on the head and say, "It's ok to swindle, cheat and lie, there is one God in the Bet Knesset and another in the Boursa. Or the Diamond Exchange. Or the World Out There".
BLUNTLY. When he arrives, Mashiach is going to KICK ASS and BUST HEADS. Yes, the gentile nations coming against us will be/are being shattered and destroyed. But he is going to go after the bullies, the tyrants, the cowards, the thieves, the swindlers, the con men, AMONG US.
And he won't be interested in the "good stories" about the "bad homes" these people came from.
On Mashiach's Hit List FIRST and FOREMOST will be "religious" people, the one's who PROFANED and DESECRATED the Name of the God of Israel by saying THIS and doing THAT.
And he will go after the "nice people", the "good people", the "respectable people" who form a Greek Phalanx of Protection around the PERPETRATORS and treats the victims and those who defend them as the ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE.You'd better believe it because it's true! Somehow people have gotten the wrong idea about what is coming even though the prophets warned us. They ignore those warnings with the saying that "Bad prophecies don't have to come true." And yet, if you look back down the road of history, we see that every one of them has - until today. This is the track we are on and it's too near the end to change now.
In the first century BCE, Babylonian born Hillel (later known as Hillel the Elder) migrated to the Land of Israel to study and worked as a woodcutter, eventually becoming the most influential force in Jewish life. ...He was known for his kindness, gentleness, concern for humanity....
Hillel the Elder’s friendly adversary was Shammai, a native of the Land of Israel about whom little is known except that he was a builder, known for the strictness of his views. He was reputed to be dour, quick-tempered and impatient. Both lived during the reign of King Herod (37-4 BCE), an oppressive period in Jewish history because of the Roman occupation of the Land of Israel. Shammai was concerned that if Jews had too much contact with the Romans, the Jewish community would be weakened, and this attitude was reflected in his strict interpretation of Jewish law. Hillel did not share Shammai's fear and therefore was more liberal in his view of law.
Hillel was the more popular of the two scholars, and he was chosen by the Sanhedrin, the supreme Jewish court, to serve as its president. While Hillel and Shammai themselves did not differ on a great many basic issues of Jewish law, their disciples were often in conflict. The Talmud records over 300 differences of opinion between Beit Hillel (the House of Hillel) and Beit Shammai (the House of Shammai). The Rabbis of the Talmud generally sided with the rulings of the School of Hillel, although the Sages believed that both views were valid.
Sixteenth-century kabbalist Rabbi Isaac Luria (the “Ari”) said that not only are both the words of the House of Shammai and the House of Hillel enduring on the conceptual level, but each has its time and place on the pragmatic level as well. In our present world, we follow the rulings of the House of Hillel, but in the era of Messiah, the majority opinion will shift in favor of the House of Shammai, and their rulings will then be implemented. The Ari believed that in our present reality, where divine commandments must be imposed upon an imperfect world, the rulings of the House of Hillel represent the ultimate in conformity to the divine will, while the rulings of the House of Shammai represent an ideal that is too lofty for our present state (which is why we perceive them as “stricter” and more confining), and can only be realized on the conceptual level. In the era of Messiah, the situation will be reversed: a perfected world will embrace the more exacting application of Torah law expressed by the House of Shammai, while the Hillelian school of interpretation will endure only conceptually.

The idea that the Halacha will be in accordance with Beis Shamai in the time of Moshiach comes from the Arizal. It is quoted in his name by Mikdash Melech to Zohar Parshas Bereishis 17b and in Likkutey Torah (Rabbi Shnuer Zalman of Liadi) Parshas Korach 54c. The Arizal interprets the Mishna in Pirkey Avos (5:19) that an argument for the sake of heaven such as that of Hillel and Shamai will endure; although now the Halacha is like Beis Hillel, the argument will endure as later the Halacha will be like Beis Shamai. An alternate source is Tosfos Chadashim at the beginning of Avos who brings this in the name of the Gaon of Nikolsburg.
There are two general explanations brought:
1) Mikdash Melech: Hillel represents kindness and Shammai severity (hence the rulings of Beis Hillel are almost always more lenient). When Moshaich comes the advantage of the severity will be revealed and therefore the halacha will be in accordance with Beis Shamai. [Based on this reason some say that this is only in cases where Bais Shamai are stricter].
2) Tosfos Chadashim: Bais Shmai comes from such a high level this present world is incapable of withstanding and only when Moshiach comes will we be able to follow their opinion. [It seems based on this reason we will follow all Beis Shamai's rulings, not only the stricter ones.]
The Lubavitcher Rebbe explains at length in his Kuntres "Torah Chadosha Me'Iti Teztzei" how the fact that the Halacha will change in accordance with Beis Shamai is consistant with the immutable nature of the Torah. (Source)So, if you are one of those who is looking forward to Days of Mashiach being a time when halachah no longer applies, think again!
"To be completely honest, I do not think that Halacha is something that must be followed in every instance. There are plenty of areas including LGBT rights, the Agunah problem, and many other moral imperatives that I believe override any Halachic consideration. However, one of the interesting things about not having Halacha be the only ethical system that I follow, is that I feel that I can have a much more objective view than someone who is completely committed and engulfed by it."They have elevated their own thoughts and feelings above the revealed will of the Creator. They refuse to submit their personal opinions and sensitivities to the constraints of the Covenant and thereby make themselves into rebels who spread apikorsus and kefirah.
So apparently Jared and Ivanka play golf on Shabbat. Cue the handwringing.
The New York Post reported Wednesday that the president’s Jewish daughter and son-in-law like to hit the links on the holy day, and stay within the bounds of the Sabbath rules by walking the course (instead of driving a cart) and tipping the caddie the next day (instead of handling money). Of course, the newspaper also noted that even according to the “less strict” Conservative movement, merely playing the game is a violation of Shabbat.
Articles of this type — I’ve written a couple — are premised on the idea that if Javanka are Orthodox Jews, they should be observing Jewish law, called halachah, strictly by the book. Anything less is hypocrisy or blasphemy.
On the surface, that assumption seems to make sense. But it’s wrong.
That’s because Jared and Ivanka have never claimed to strictly observe halachah. And among Jews who identify with Orthodoxy and belong to Orthodox synagogues, they are far from alone.
The real abomination is the vitriol directed at Rabbi Dweck (Times of Israel blog)
It’s really disheartening to hear of all the negative energy sent in Rabbi Dweck’s direction. As a man of deep integrity and wisdom, it is clear from all of his teachings that he understands the fragility of the human condition and is keen to find ways for people to embrace the love of Torah.
Having spoken to him directly on issues concerning LGBT+ members of the Jewish community here in London, it is abundantly clear to me that Rabbi Dweck is perplexed by the disproportionate actions taken by members of the community to denigrate its LGBT+ members, purportedly in the name of Halachah.
Time To Rethink Our Resistance To Intermarriage (The New York Jewish Week)
...While the Reform movement has the most welcoming posture towards families with non-Jewish partners, the Conservative and Modern Orthodox worlds would be well served if they adopted a similar approach. Gone are the days when dogma and devotion rule; today every Jew is a Jew by choice. If our traditional communities do not learn how to adapt to modernity and cater religiously to different people’s needs, Judaism risks nearing its extinction date.
... In order for the Jewish people to be a light unto the nations, it’s time we revisit our tribalistic approach toward intermarriage and our highly divisive conversion practices. Instead, welcome “the other” into the Jewish family.It's all about erasing the lines of division and creating One New Man out of the Jew, the Muslim and the Christian.
Approximately half the attendees are Israeli residents of the Gush Etzion settlement bloc communities of Efrat, Alon Shvut, Kfar Etzion, Bat Ayin, Tekoa and others, who have come to celebrate the end of the fast, talk about co-existence and build relationships.
The evening, hosted by the Shorashim/Judur organization, a local NGO that calls itself a “grassroots movement of understanding, nonviolence, and transformation among Israelis and Palestinians,” is second of four break-fasts the organization will be hosting in June and just one of dozens of interfaith programs throughout the month.
Top religious leaders urge followers to ‘make friends’ across faiths (Times of Israel)Only Israel was bidden by her Creator to remain a separate people entrusted with a unique mission. This Truth is under attack like never before in the history of the world.
...In a three-minute video made in partnership with Twitter, the petitioners — including Pope Francis, Former UK Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, the Dalai Lama and Egyptian Grand Mufti Shawki Allam — disseminated their message in 16 different languages.
"You will but gaze with your eyes, and you will see the annihilation of the wicked." (Tehillim 91)Some want to preach "unity above all", but there is only one kind of unity among Jews and that is the unity we shared at the foot of Har Sinai - unity of purpose, unity of devotion, unity of destiny - all of it rooted in our acceptance of the Torah.
...When you think about the fact that Torah observant Jews know that the roots of christianity are false and inconsistent with their own worldview, and yet a significant amount of them, while ardently warning other Jews against touching such a poisonous worldview, would encourage gentiles to stay in and embrace the christian religion saying there’s nothing fundamentally wrong with it (including the Jesus-worshipping parts of it), a potentially disheartening realisation can dawn upon a savvy gentile, especially one that knows of and does his best to observe the Seven Commandments. What’s that realisation? That we are not all in this together!
...And how do you think this comes across to those, like me, who are watching the actions of the christianity-promoting/preserving Jews? Like they really give a damn about gentiles? You’ve gotta be kidding me. It seems more like they are trying to appease the religions around them and remaining in somewhat comfort in their exile while their attempts to appease surrounding religions only gives those religion confirmation to continue in the sort of actions that bring us as gentiles lower. And once the time of these christian-appeasing Jews is over, whether by death or by return to their homeland in “aliyah”, having protected themselves and ensured their own safety, our “reward” for such “service” is that they would have done a fantastic job in watching over and guiding the poisoning of our “water supply”, our sources of knowledge; let’s enjoy the potential mental retardation of us and our children and the further establishment of the house the Esau/Edom built [rabbis more faithful to the cause of truth see the link between the christian and Roman sources of our society and the ways of biblical Esau]. Sorry if I don’t rush to show my gratitude.A very sobering perspective that cannot and should not be ignored.
Jewish views, as codified in Jewish law, are split between those who see Christianity as outright idolatry and those who see Christianity as shituf. While Christians view their worship of a trinity as monotheistic, Judaism generally rejects this view.
The Talmud warns against causing an idolater to take oaths. The commentators living in Christian Germany in the 12th century, called Tosafists, permitted Jews to engage in business practices with Christians, even though this could result in the Christian partner taking an oath by God, which to Christians would include Jesus, by saying that so long as another deity is not mentioned explicitly, there is no idolatry taking place, but only an association. In a terse comment, they wrote:Three hundred years later...
It is permissible to [cause a gentile's oath through litigation with one's non-Jewish partner because] today all swear in the name of the saints to whom no divinity is ascribed. Even though they also mention God's name and have in mind another thing, in any event no idolatrous name is actually said, and they also have the Creator of the world in mind. Even though they associate (shituf) God's name with "something else", we do not find that it is forbidden to cause others to associate (shituf), and there is no issue of placing a stumbling block before the blind (see Leviticus 19:14) [by entering into litigation with the non-Jewish business partner, thereby causing him to take an oath] because Noachides were not warned about it.
In the 16th Century, the terse comment is explained as follows by Moses Isserles:
Today, it is permitted [to form a partnership with Christians], because when they swear on their holy scriptures called the Evangelion, they do not hold it to be divine. Even though when they mention God they mean Jesus, they do not mention idolatry since they really mean the Creator of heaven and earth.
Even though they mention jointly (shituf) God's name and another name, there is no prohibition to cause someone to jointly mention [or associate] (shituf) God with another... since this association is not forbidden to gentiles.Another two hundred years after that, again in Germany!...
...Moses Mendelssohn, the 18th century Jewish Enlightenment thinker, used the concept of shituf as cited in Tosafot to justify any form of association of God with another entity.And we all (should) know what happened to Moses Mendelssohn...

Jewish Sanhedrin and Muslims Agree on Coming End Times
The Jewish Sanhedrin, a recently reinstated public body of Jewish leadership, has voiced their agreement with some Muslims that the coming Mahdi is the Messiah. Both agree that the building of the Temple is one of the stages in the Messianic process. In this interview, they attempt to bring Christians in as part of the "divine plan." Author Adnan Oktar recently met with three representatives from the re-established Jewish Sanhedrin, a group of 71 Orthodox rabbis and scholars from Israel, to discuss how religious Muslims, Jews and Christians can work together on the project.
Rabbis of the Sanhedrin have sent a letter to the heads of countries in the world with a call to Israel to encourage the establishment of the Temple and participate in prayer on the Temple Mount, which is not reserved only for the Jewish people, they said, and that is what will bring peace. ...The Rabbis of the Sanhedrin write that prayer on the Temple Mount is a right reserved for all people, and even an obligation, as long as it is done in the permitted places - according to the person praying, beginning from Cohanim, Levites, Israelites, ending with B'nei Noach. They also added, based on a Jewish "midrash", that the non-Jews can arouse Israel to fulfill its role and to help building the Temple.One Muslim, Adnan Oktar, answered this call and invited rabbis from the Sanhedrin to come to Turkey.
Rabbi Loebel: ...We are aware of the excellent books of Islam which Mr. Oktar has been publishing over the years. We have initiated contacts to bring Mr. Oktar's understanding of Islam to our Ministry of Education, to adapt the books of Mr. Oktar for schools – both for the Muslim sector and for basic knowledge of Islam necessary for mutual understanding between Muslims and Jews. We also have initiated a process by which these books will be adapted for use in the process of rehabilitation of Muslims. We ask your help in these projects; preparing the syllabus and the textbooks.
This vision must be taught in Israel and in Gaza.
The Islam of Mr. Oktar, the Islam of tolerance and compassion and understanding and respect and dignity for all believers is exactly the medicine that the world in this 21st Century needs.As with Christianity, so with Islam. Each side thinks the other will yield to his "truth" willingly...
Video Proof: [WARNING! Immodest "kittens" present]
Look I am a Muslim and the rabbi who came here is loving towards me. He says, "you are the sons of Noah." You speak of him like the enemy. Why is this? There is no such thing. Since they do not know our Prophet (pbuh), they do not submit to him. After they know him, they do. For example, the rabbi who came here - I am not going to give his name - when I talked to him, he said, "it is clear that he is a just and true Prophet." He said, "When I look sincerely I can see that he is a real prophet." he says, "just like we accept the prophet Abraham, we must also accept Prophet Mohammad (pbuh)." He spoke very openly.
But of course they are not all like this. In the time of the Mahdi, our Prophet (pbuh) says, some Jews will believe and the chest of Solomon will be brought and put in front of the Mahdi.
Look, the Messenger (pbuh) says this. Except for a small group, all Jews will become Muslims in the time of the Mahdi. It is very clear.And, of course, Yehudah Glick, will not be left behind: VIDEO HERE. [Keep barf-bag handy for when Glick gets up from his seat to approach Oktar and hug him repeatedly.]
"That you may know today and understand this truth: that Hashem alone is God in the heavens above and on Earth below; there is none other. ...On that day Hashem will be One and His name One.” .It won't be (Y)allah and it won't be Yeshu!!!
As Christian Zionism changes, attacks on Judaism are becoming more overt. The bulk of the shift in Christian Zionism is a result of the growing international dominance of charismatics who reject the concept of being raptured and stress the conversion of Jews to trigger the end times.
In their version of the end times drama, they do not watch idly from the grandstands of heaven after being raptured but remain on earth to fight evil and the anti-Christ themselves. It is Jesus who remains in heaven until the job is completed and a Christian Israel calls out for his return. This cleansing of the earth is done by the combined forces of charismatic or “spirit-filled” Christians and their Messianic partners, the term applied to Jews who convert but retain Jewish identity. The shorthand catchphrase for this distinctive end times narrative involving converted Jews is “one new man in Yeshua.”
Not surprisingly, the growing importance of converts in the end times narrative is encouraging a new wave of proselytizing to convert Jews to Christianity. As Hagee’s Jewish allies are quick to point out, he publicly opposes proselytizing, but much of his organization’s leadership and events are hosted by those who have embraced this “one new man” ideology and you can find it throughout Christian Zionist media. Hagee also publicly endorsed a Messianic ministry in Israel.
...By repenting of the Holocaust and allowing Messianics to retain their Jewish identity, these Christian Zionists teach that the stumbling blocks will be removed and Jews will convert in large numbers.
...Another stated goal of the Christian Zionist/Messianic partnership is to fight antisemitism. However while they are very anxious to defend Israel from an Islamic world they view as a common enemy, this conceals the fact that they are equally determined to save Israel from Judaism.
In "Your People Shall Be My People", Finto quotes convert Dan Juster as stating “Rabbinic Judaism is a more severe departure from biblical faith than I had ever realized in my early days of Jewish recovery… We who are Jewish are biblical New Covenant Jews, not Rabbinic Jews!”
...We already are seeing the onset of disillusionment with Jews who resist playing their assigned prophetic role. Believing themselves to be better Jews than the Jews, Christian Zionists step in to fill the role themselves. Like the British Israelites of the last century, today a group calling themselves Ephraimites believe themselves to be the true Israelites. But unlike the British Israelites, they are multiracial, including Whites, Blacks and Latinos, and even international.
Members of Israel’s Likud Party are working with these Ephraimites and other Christian Zionists through World Likud, headed by Danny Danon. Following a 2007 conference in Texas with Likud leaders, Joel Bell and friends launched a new organization called Worldwide Biblical Zionism (WBZ) to provide housing, legal assistance, employment aid, and military training to Christian Zionists who wish to make aliyah to Israel and the West Bank. [This role has now passed to HaYovel.]
Several leaders in Benjamin Netanyahu’s government participated in the inaugural WBZ event on November 16, 2008, including Gideon Sa’ar, current Minister of Education; Ayoob Kara, Deputy Minister of Development of the Negev and Galilee; and Yulie Edelstein, Minister of Information and Diaspora Affairs. Much of the outreach in the United States has been by Sagiv Assulin, the Knesset Leader of the Young.
One group reporting contact with Assulin is the Messianic Israel Alliance (MIA), whose name is misleading since the organization is comprised of Ephraimite Christians who believe they have a right to land in Israel. Before their 2008 national convention, they formed a “Provisional Israelite Council in Exile” and demanded their “inalienable right of return to their biblical inheritance and historical territory located in current Samaria and Judea.”The preceding was an excerpt from an excellent expose written by Rachel Tabachnick in 2010. The WBZ has since been replaced with B'ney Yosef, Commonwealth of Israel (COI) and their practical arm - HaYovel. But, as you will recall from recent quotes, the Biblical Zionism terminology remains.
...It is not clear whether WBZ will succeed in bringing substantial numbers of Christians to the West Bank even as Christian Zionist funds continue to flow to the region; Ariel, described as the capital of “Samaria,” has a swimming pool named for CUFI director Billye Brim, located in the “John Hagee Building.” In fact, there are signs of a backlash within Likud against Christian Zionism that could interfere with the Ephraimites fulfilling their hopes. Moshe Feiglin is among the most right-wing of Likud politicians, but he recently disengaged from his partnership with Christian Zionists. He wrote in the Jewish Press,...
"The Christian conquest is much more dangerous than the Muslim conquest because it is not direct. It is not violent. Embracing and supportive, it connects with Israel against the Muslim enemy. It supports a Jewish Land of Israel in its entirety – even speaking up for the sanctity of the connection between the Nation of Israel, the Land of Israel and the Torah of Israel. It just forgets to specify which Nation of Israel and which Torah."
