About Our Congregation

Pastor Tal & Tigi

Pastor Tal and Tigi Shefraw are Messianic Ethiopian Jews who have made Aliyah back to Israel. During “Operation Solomon” over fourteen thousand Ethiopian Jews were airlifted to Israel in thirty-six hours. Tal and Tigi were on those planes, and they later met and then married in Israel. They have a vibrant family with three children: Benjamin, Joel, and Shir.

Heart Of Hospitality

As a family their heart of hospitality is tremendous. Like Jesus, they never stop giving out, they serve the body of Christ and love the broken world with true compassion. Many other Ethiopian congregations across Israel look to Pastor Tal for guidance and spiritual leadership. Between 75-100 people attend their church in Jerusalem.

Our Challanges

One of the challenges for our Ethiopian Jewish families in Israel is that most of our background is from the village of the northern part of Ethiopia. Most of them have a past history of farming the land and never received proper education. Most of children who grew up in Israel were raised without a father, this kind of family life has proven difficult for children and caused a lack of motivation in educated and left them without much hope for the future.

Please pray for us, join us for service & consider a tax-deductible donation.
