Our Israeli Partners
Blessing Israeli Believers exists to bless and uniquely empower Israeli believers in Yeshua to be the Shining Light to Israel and the Nations of the World!
Daniel and Rachel Goldstein
Daniel and Rachel Goldstein have been living in Israel for almost 20 years - mainly in Jerusalem. They have been serving the Lord for 30 years and both speak Hebrew as their second language.
For many years this precious couple has been sharing the good news of Messiah Jesus and feeding and helping the poor saints in Jerusalem. They really have a heart for the poor and needy people of Jerusalem and have been very successful in producing results for the great needs of the Believing community in difficult situations. Daniel pastors a small congregation in Jerusalem as well.
In their own words:
"Due to the great economic crisis in the world, we are seeking your help in this most blessed endeavor to stand with us at this time. In addition, as the political situation changes and as we see the world turning against us in a manner not seen since World War II, we truly seek your support. We need you and we thank you for your help."
Blessing from Jerusalem,
Daniel and Rachel Goldstein
Pastor Oded Shoshani
My name is Oded Shoshani.
I was born in 1959 in Ramat Gan, near Tel Aviv. I came to know Yeshua, the Messiah of Israel, right after my army service. Shortly later, my wife, Sandy and I married and I began my studies at the Israel Institute of Technology , the "Technion", completing a degree in mechanical engineering.
During the 13 years of working professionally as an engineer, I served in leadership roles in congregations. In the spring of 2002, the Lord called me into full time service in ministry.
I have been the pastor of the Hebrew congregation of King of Kings Jerusalem since January 2004. My wife and I have seven children who follow and serve the Lord.
Yeshua said in Mattew 26:11 that we will always have the poor. Our desire, while helping the poor, is not only to provide help in severe situations but to make sure that people will learn how to better manage their resources. To facilitate that we provide financial counseling to the needy. However, we have single mother families who constantly struggle to have ends meet. The economic structure does not allow single mother families to thrive but always be "on the edge". We also have some families that are facing hard times for various reasons. We appreciate any help and make sure that all designated funds for the needy are used just for that.
Psalm 133: 3
As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion:
for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.
"Blessed Are Those Who Come"
Serving in Northern Israel
Ezra and Shulamite minister in the Northern areas of Israel---in their own words:
We are an Israeli immigrant family who face the difficulties faced by all immigrants in adapting to a new culture. Through these struggles God prepared our hearts to reach out to minister to others who find themselves in difficult situations. Presently we have been blessed to serve our LORD and His people for over 10 years and this is our life long desire, to serve Him.
Our Purpose is to gather together “…that He might teach us His ways, that we might walk in His paths…” Isa. 2:3
Our Goal is to reveal the Person and Divinity of Messiah, Yeshua, and the furtherance of Education concerning Early Christianity and its Judaic Roots.
Our Call is the “equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Messiah till we all come to the unity of the faith…” Eph. 4:12-13
The apostle John exhorts us through the Spirit, “let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth” 1Jn.3:18. Throughout the last decade, poverty in Israel has significantly increased. Social gaps have widened and the obstacles to escaping poverty have increased. In regards to employment, the study shows that 30% of poor individuals who get support from NGOs are employed, while 60% are unemployed who have been out of a job for over three years, an increase of 11% in comparison to 2009.
Some 1.77 million people live in poverty in Israel, of them more than 850,000 children, according to an "alternative poverty report". 75% of impoverished individuals in Israel forgo meals due to their financial situation, a 21% rise from 2009. Moreover, 83% of children did not receive dental care. In light of these statistics the LORD has directed us to establish a program to financially assist poverty stricken Believing Israeli families. We provide financial assistance for food, dental, utilities, clothing, and numerous other needs that can be substantiated by the applicant. We are thankful to Blessing Israeli Believers Partners who help us in our Kingdom work!
Praise King Messiah Yeshua,

The Beautiful City of Haifa Meet Ariel and Shayla
In 2010, Ariel and Shayla Hyde returned to Israel and started using every opportunity possible to reach Israelis with the Gospel.
Serving as part of Carmel Congregation and Kerem-El Congregation, they led many outreaches on Jewish holidays and multiple-day evangelistic events. Hundreds of Israelis experienced the love of Messiah and heard the Gospel for the first time. Meanwhile, they began holding workshops to equip believers in evangelism and worship.
Ariel and his father Richard published the booklet “Supernatural or Just Remarkable,” now used widely in outreach in Israel.
Then Ariel and his friend with a passion for evangelism, Eliel Fos, both sensed God calling them to share the Gospel on the streets, film the conversations, and post the videos online in order to reach many more Israelis.
We’ve been amazed to see how God has multiplied these simple efforts and caused the videos to reach over 10 million views, sparking countless conversations about Yeshua-Jesus on social media with seekers. What an honor to see how God is using these to bring Israelis to faith!
Just as God promised, He’s restored the Jewish people to their homeland,
they’ve reestablished their nation, and survived multiple wars against all odds.
And yet, there’s something missing: This people still don’t know their own Messiah. They’re mostly still lost spiritually, empty and broken inside.
But now is the time that God is beginning to breathe life into the “dry bones” of Israel. More Jewish people are receiving Jesus, Yeshua, now than at any other time in history!
May the Lord bless you richly,
Ariel and Shayla
