Programme 103 – Shira Sorko Ram (part 3 of 3)
For the past two programmes we’ve been in Tel Aviv talking to Shira Sorko Ram, who, forty years ago, along with her husband Ari, founded the Messianic congregation called Ma-oze. Shira has lived in Israel a long time and watched as thousands of Jewish people from all over the world have come to live in the land they call home. So, as Christians living in the West, what should be our response? I asked Shira to help us understand God’s heart by sharing with us some of the Scriptures that are speaking about the times in which we are living.MP3 Download: Download programme 103
Programme 102 – Shira Sorko Ram (part 2 of 3)
Today we’re back in Tel Aviv talking to Shira Sorko Ram, who, forty years ago, along with her husband Ari, founded the Messianic congregation called Ma-oze. This has grown from a small home group to a vibrant congregation that is touching Israeli society in all sorts of imaginative ways. We are used to large churches in the West, but in Israel, the actual number of believers in Jesus is still very small … but those numbers are steadily growing as Shira explains.MP3 Download: Download programme 102
Programme 101 – Shira Sorko Ram (part 1 of 3)
Recently I was in Tel Aviv and met with Shira Sorko Ram, who with her husband Ari lead a congregation called Ma-oze (MAOZ). It’s taken over 40 years of hard work to reach where they are today not only meeting each week as a congregation, but also caring for the needy and encouraging many individuals and groups to reach out to Israeli society with the gospel creatively and boldly.
Today Shira describes some of the most significant events of the past 40 years – events that have shaped her life and the life of Israelis.MP3 Download: Download programme 101

My guest today is Riti Katz. She is Jewish. I met her in a noisy shopping mall on the outskirts of Jerusalem recently. I had heard about her work as a teacher to both Jewish and Palestinian children and wanted to find out what motivated her interest in reconciliation.

Programme 93 – Dalia Alon
This week my guest is Dalia Alon – we heard her husband on last week’s programme. Dan and Dalia became believers in their 40s whilst on a trip to America. As you will hear later in this interview, Dalia had suffered from rejection for her entire life – but all that changed when she met Yeshua.
She is concerned now for the small but growing body of believers living in Israel and she and her husband now live in the peace and quiet of the Negev desert in southern Israel and spend much of their time in prayer and intercession.
I met Dan and Dalia in Beersheva recently and in this interview Dalia shares from the heart about why she believes the Lord brought them to the Negev.MP3 Download: Download programme 93
Programme 92 – Dan Alon (part 2 of 2)
Last week we heard the story of Dan Alon, a Jewish believer living in the Negev in southern Israel with his wife Dalia. Whilst on a visit to America they met a lady who happened to have the same camera as Dalia and who happened to be a Jewish believer. A conversation followed and a friendship was started which led, some months later, to Dan and Dalia finding faith in Jesus … by this time they were in their 40s. On returning to Israel they eventually met other believers and joined a congregation in Tiberias where they stayed for many years. As they grew older they realised the Lord wanted them to move and now they live in the Negev where they have started a small congregation.MP3 Download: Download programme 92
Programme 91 – Dan Alon (part 1 of 2)
My guest today is Dan Alon who today is a Messianic Jewish pastor in the Negev in southern Israel. He was born into a secular Jewish family. His father was an officer in the Israeli army. Dan, after finishing his army service, studied Industrial Engineering at university and worked in that field for 16 years. During that time he married Dalia and they had three children. It was during this time that Dan had the opportunity to work in America for one year. Little did he and Dalia realise that during that year their lives would change for ever.MP3 Download: Download programme 91
