A Message from the Rabbi
Temple New Jerusalem (TNJ) is a messianic synagogue located in Palm Harbor, Florida, and has been serving our community for over 20 years. People come to TNJ from Pinellas, Pasco, Hillsborough, Hernando, and Manatee counties. We serve people coming from Clearwater, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Dunedin, New Port Richey, Trinity, Tarpon Springs, Spring Hill, Wesley Chapel, and all over the Tampa Bay area. TNJ belongs to the mainstream, international, messianic Jewish movement. A quick word about me: I am born and raised Jewish. I am duly trained and ordained as a messianic Rabbi. I am actively engaged in serving our community through the most reputable and established messianic Jewish organizations in the world, in which I serve as an executive leader and member of the rabbinical board. (See: and If you're interested in attending TNJ for the first time, I would love to meet you!

TNJ is are a congregation of both Jewish and non-Jewish people who identify with Israel, and who believe that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Messiah. We promote and defend conservative values. We are pro-Israel and pro-America. We believe in the Bible and hold to the age-old principle that the nuclear family is the pillar of a great society. As the Rabbi at TNJ, I want you to know the way to have more freedom and personal happiness. I believe that freedom and happiness is the birthright of all people who believe in the Messiah. At TNJ, we reject Marxism and Socialism in all its forms, and stand against the growing wave of anti-Israel, anti-American, anti-God fanaticism that has been cultivated by the Left in America and is threatening to destroy Western culture.

TNJ welcomes guests and visitors of all kinds, both Jewish and non-Jewish to attend our services, so some come check us out if you're interested. If you come for the first time, you will definitely be made to feel welcome, but know this: We will never put you on the spot. You can be as social or as incognito as you may want. Totally up to you. We are also sensitive to the needs of interfaith couples, where one spouse is Jewish and the other is non-Jewish. Whether you are a regular attendee or a guest, ALL are welcome to come and celebrate the rich spiritual heritage of Israel that is uniquely available to all at Temple New Jerusalem! 

My wife, Tara, and I were married in 1994. We are a family with four children who grew up in our synagogue, ranging from late teens to early twenties. Our home is filled with love and our family dinner table is a place of laughter and joy. We greatly value serving the unique needs of families, as well as singles, and newly married couples. I personally love to dialogue with young adults. We are shiny happy people who take our job very seriously.
I believe it is important to love God with all your heart, and to love your fellow human being as well. I also believe it's important to bless Israel. I think those who bless Israel are blessed in return.  I invite you to come to a Shabbat service at Temple New Jerusalem. Meanwhile, you can also connect with me thru facebook, my books, podcasts, and online video teachings. I look forward to meet you in person. Come see us!
