Good News For The City

This weekend is the start of Passover—or Pesah—when our Jewish friends commemorate how God freed their people from 400 years of slavery in Egypt. Each household sacrificing a spotless lamb and painting the doorposts with its blood. 

John the Baptist later used the same Exodus imagery to declare Jesus—or Yeshua—the Messiah. “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the World!”

Our guest today has dedicated his life to helping his Jewish brothers and sisters know Yeshua as their Messiah. Just like Paul said in Romans, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.”

Rabbi Aaron Allsbrook Born and raised in Southern California, Rabbi Aaron Allsbrook has known Yeshua his whole life. He shared about Yeshua to his Jewish and non-Jewish friends in high school. At the end of high school Rabbi Aaron began to feel that there was more to his Jewishness than just Passover and Hanukkah at his grandparents. 

At this time, he made his first visit to a messianic synagogue in Philadelphia, his first trip to Israel, and then his first visit to an Orthodox synagogue. God certainly was moving in his life, revealing to him that his Jewishness was something central to his identity. He went so far as to begin to live like an Orthodox Jew, including getting Orthodox rabbinic ordination. 

Not long after that Rabbi Aaron knew there was something missing, something more. While the traditions were great, he craved more of the Spirit of God and the love of Yeshua. He left the Orthodox world and began to seek a way of living an authentic Jewish life under the leading of the Spirit. 

His travels brought him to Israel, where he lived for four years, and then to New York, where he met his beautiful wife, Brooke, with whom he has three children. It was in New York that he was a special education teacher and an assistant rabbi at a Messianic synagogue on Long Island. After several years of serving in this capacity, he wanted to pursue being a full-time Messianic rabbi, which is what led him to Ohev Yisrael. 

He desires to see Jewish people come to know Yeshua, their Messiah, and live their life in service of our Master as Jews full of the Spirit of God.
