Messianic Rabbi Zev Porat, founder of Messiah of Israel Ministries, was born in Israel into a Sanhedrin’s family and raised in Bnei Brak, one of the most Jewish Orthodox cities in Israel. His grandfather, Rabbi Pinchas Porat, was a holocaust survivor who later became one of the heads of the Sanhedrin in Israel. Certified as a Jewish rabbi, Zev never truly experienced the presence of God and drifted away from Judaism. But that all changed when Zev had a number of supernatural encounters that brought him to faith in Messiah Yeshua (Christ Jesus). Led by the Holy Spirit, Zev founded Messiah of Israel Ministries, one of the very few Messianic congregations actively preaching the Gospel publicly in Israel today. Over the many years, Messiah of Israel Ministries has been reaching holocaust survivors, IDF soldiers, discipleship programs (Messianic congregations), and much more with the truth of Messiah Yeshua.
Zev teaches from a unique Biblical Hebrew foundation perspective of our faith in Yeshua, and how we can prepare ourselves as the Bride, to meet Yeshua the Messiah in the second coming. Zev is the Correspondent and Co-Host of Freedom Friday with Host, Pastor Carl Gallups, and has been heard nationally and internationally on Alfa Omega TV (Europe), CBN TV (Europe), Skywatch TV (USA), Prophecy in the News TV (USA), CBN TV (Europe), Asian Christian Network TV, EFR Christian German TV and Radio, as well as many other radio and television programs globally. He has also been interviewed numerous times on the TV program, "Why Israel," hosted by Rabbi David Naggi, which airs on Alfa Omega TV, TBN, as well as other networks in Europe.
Zev earned a Rabbinic Sanhedrin certificate from the Ponevezh Yeshiva (school for Rabbis) in Bnei Brak, Israel. Glory to Yeshua, after Zev got saved, he returned the certificate to the Yeshiva. Later, Zev became an ordained Messianic Rabbi (Pastor). He leads many Messianic house groups in Israel, and daily ministry outreaches in Synagogues and Mosques throughout Israel, which has resulted in many Jews and Arabs coming to the knowledge of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) as Lord and Savior. He has shared the message of Yeshua through the Biblical Hebrew Foundation around the world, including
the underground congregations in China, assisting in the establishment of over 100 congregations in Asia.
