Messianic Jew Returns to Judaism with Rav Amnon Yitzhak


Rav Amnon Yitzhak

Rav Amnon Yitzhak is by far my favorite online Jewish preacher. He has a fantastic sense of comedy and irony, and great timing. I don’t agree with his notion of the afterlife, but that’s OK, he probably doesn’t agree with mine.

This video is a masterpiece, both in terms of its drama and the way it absolutely speaks the language of the medium – You Tube.


About the Author: Yori Yanover has been a working journalist since age 17, before he enlisted and worked for Ba'Machane Nachal. Since then he has worked for Israel Shelanu, the US supplement of Yedioth, JCN18.com, USAJewish.com, Lubavitch News Service, Arutz 7 (as DJ on the high seas), and the Grand Street News. He has published Dancing and Crying, a colorful and intimate portrait of the last two years in the life of the late Lubavitch Rebbe, (in Hebrew), and two fun books in English: The Cabalist's Daughter: A Novel of Practical Messianic Redemption, and How Would God REALLY Vote.

  1. Did not watch it….But an authentic Messianic Jew who has come to know the reality of Jesus would never return to orthodox Judaism….You could not….The evidence and reality of Jesus is just too much….I have experienced Jesus and so has billions of others both Jew and Gentile….Just fact…Not seeking to debate….

  2. Scott Jacobs says:

    If it were a video of a man claiming to be Yeshua speaking, oughtn’t you watch it before blabbing either way about its inaccuracy- on a thread about THAT video?

  3. This video is filled with too much lies,and the condescending way the rabbi spoke is typical ,and ill informed on scripture no wonder when they hold the Talmud over holy scripture.

  4. Messianic Jews mean uneducated or mentally compromised Jews and it also means real Jews who are too polite to confront this nonsense. Even ‘Yeshua’ would reject these cults and idolatrous crap. I rejected Xianity and converted on my own after growing up in the church. It’s simply a lie.

  6. Who is this my educated friend
    Proverbs 30:4 – Who has gone up to heaven and come down? Who has cupped the wind in the palms of his hands? Who has wrapped up the waters in his cloak? Who established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and what is his son’s name? Surely you know!>

  8. Your right too not Jesus Yeshua BORN a Jew lived as a Jew died a Jew and most importantly resurrected as a Jew and coming back soon as Machiach ben David and The Lion of the Tribe of Judah.

  9. Romi Itzik says:

    ha ha abd who was jesua ??? wasnt he not a prechen in Temple? did he said one word abaut Christianity? no He was A jew Please du not Change History Christanity was invented Later ..300 years after his death Orthodox greeck axepted and another 300 years Passed Until Rome used it as Political Instrument to rull so many Contries and all with Blood on The Hands Like Moslem No Diferece at all .ist all writen look for it serch dont ever believe those who make living out of it .Cristanity is not a Religion .. and for shure not from a jew to be teached .

  10. [ Even 'Yeshua' would reject these cults and idolatrous crap] Agree with you, he was a Jew and a righteous who teached to the other nations to return to the Torah and to the ONLY ONE G-d, the G-d of Israel. Men after him invented a religion of idolatry and killed people in name of it.

  11. Want to know more about Judaism.

  12. Want to know more about Judaism.

  13. That’s right it’s not about religion, religion will not save you from your sin only G-d who offered up his son Yeshua as a final sacrifice your covering your redemption false pagan Roman Catholic religion has much to answer for but so have the Rabbis who lie but know in their hearts the truth (emet) of Machiach. YESHUA did NOT come to start a new religion he came that you might search the Torah and your heart and know that he and Abba are one.

    YHWH did something greater than he did with Moses and Mt Sinai. There were prophesies about the Messiah. And he came. He was G_d on earth. You can't get bigger than that!

  16. And yes, God IS a plurality:

    Isaiah 48:12,16 – 12 “Listen to me Ya’akov; Israe’el whom I have called: I am he who is first; I am also the last.”….16 “Come close to me and listen to this: since the beginning I have not spoken in secret, since the time things began to be, I have been there; and now Adonai Elohim has sent me and his Spirit.”

  17. And yes, God IS a plurality:

    Isaiah 48:12,16 – 12 “Listen to me Ya’akov; Israe’el whom I have called: I am he who is first; I am also the last.”….16 “Come close to me and listen to this: since the beginning I have not spoken in secret, since the time things began to be, I have been there; and now Adonai Elohim has sent me and his Spirit.”

  18. I’m not trying to facetious but began as a historic Jesus scholar many years ago. There is, of course, even among Christian scholars different theories of what he was up to. So I didn’t just reject Christianity or become a Jew one day. I mostly agree, Giulia. But I do not believe he ever had a ‘mission’ to gentiles, and in fact there are bits that don’t fit that indicate he wanted nothing to do with gentiles. And as for claims of messiahship, Christian scholars have questioned that for a long, long time. In ancient times, actually a movement predating him, blamed Paul of Tarsus for starting all the Christian mystery cult. The number 666 is Tarsus in gematria. He was involved in a proto or pre-rabbinic reform and restored “kingdom” reign of G-d movement. Today he might be seen as ultra-orthodox, nationalist. Some of the most pro-pacifist quotes like ‘Render unto Caesar’ are actually anti-Roman and subversive. I doubt he was ever truly pacifist in his teaching. He was executed for sedition against Rome, more a ‘Bar-abbas’ in reality. What Christians have in the gospels are a reworked Pauline influenced, pro-Roman/ occupation product of propaganda and certainly not inspired in any way. I came to these conclusions before ever becoming a convert.

    To: Pradip Kumar Das: Learn TORAH my friend and NOT Judaism. TORAH is what YAHSHUA the Maschiah of Israel Himself taught while Judaism teaches the TALMUD a distortion of the TORAH. Do your research and learn the truth – it is vital.

  21. @shemaya you are just a convert and it’s very easy to see why your whole theology on belief in Machiach and even Christianity is somewhat muddled to say the least to say he had no mission to the gentiles when Tanakh says this
    Isaiah 49:6 says God’s salvation would reach the ends of the earth. (In Isaiah 49:6, the prophet speaks of a servant of God who would be a light to Gentiles (non-Jews) so that God’s salvation could reach the ends of the earth. Messianic believers believe that Yeshua is the fulfillment of this promise. There are now about two billion believers in Christ worldwide. And they believe that salvation is available to anyone who accepts Yeshua as their savior.)
    Messiah came 2,000 years ago! As all Man, yet also all God, He was a DIVINE sacrifice. No one else could, or has ever, fit these particular qualifications besides YaHashua (Yeshua), whose very Name means “God is Salvation” (“Ya” is short for YHWH, or Yahweh).

    The Tanach provides ample evidence about Messiah, and the bottom line is: Y’shua is the ONLY one who has fulfilled all the qualifications. Tanach also clearly shows that Isaiah 53 IS about Yeshua and not Israel, in part, because Israel can’t be stricken for Israel. Messiah Y’shua, the “arm of HaShem,” was real and he was our Final Sin Sacrifice – and he was the “suffering servant” is Isaiah 53 because the Tanach, read in context, speaks for itself:

  36. Not muddled at all. Grew up in Christianity, good ol’ Southern Baptist. Had a time among messianics, studied Christian theology, history, with a goal to convert Jews who ‘needed Jesus’. Is 49:6 has nothing to do with Jesus. You read passages then automatically assume it must be J. when they are not. Your circular argument is ‘This is messianic, and J was the messiah, so passage is about J.’ Defective and false. Jesus is not only NOT the messiah, but Christians have never followed him.

  38. I and any other Jew who point out Christian lies do not need or use the Talmud to do so. Tovia Singer doesn’t for example. But not only this, one of the most famous anti-Chrsitian book Khizzuq Emunah, Faith Strengthened, was written by a Qaraite Jew who is also anti-Talmud. Funny thing is that Christians need the Tanakh to be scripture, but Jews need NOTHING of the Christian writings. The Christians might as well add the Qur’an and Book of Mormon to its lit. They are as sacred as the ‘NT.’ (Not at all)

  46. You came from a cult and to even say ‘to convert Jews’ shows your lack of the message of the gospel and why would you use the Talmud which are man’s views and commentaries I use G-ds word and what Christian writing are you talking about the new testament is a Jewish set of writing written by Jews that is 70% quotation from Tanakh. The whole word of G-d is my measuring stick whats yours.

  47. Tired semantics from down at da church house. LOL And the anti-semitism is a wonderful touch. ‘Jesus (as I portray him) is a REAL Jew, not like those satan inspired rabbis who KNOW the TRUTH but lie about it.’ You’re not only delusional, but use the same reasoning Martin Luther did. Later Germans took up his teaching in the theology of Nazi Christianity. All of the anti-Judaism from Paul of Tarsus up through the camp builders.

  49. You don’t know anything about me ,but I’m a frequent visitor to Israel a Zionist supporter of Israel in word and deed so to come out with that anti Semitic line shows your ignorance big time just because you change your name a have an orthodox boy beside your new name does not make you a Jew just an impostor ,you have no history or heritage to be calling yourself a Jew and the burning you do of scripture shows me you have alot to do to try and prove yourself to those you wish to be like because of your own identity crisis. I’m sure your parents are really proud of you.

  50. Isaiah 53 says “for my people, he was stricken”. The 53rd chapter goes on to say that HE was wounded for OUR transgressions. So the question is, who are Isaiah’s people? Whose transgressions is HE wounded for? The answer is ISRAEL, so Israel cannot be wounded for the sake of itself when Israel sinned and broke the covenant in the first place (Jeremiah 31).

  52. There are a number of good Jewish scholars who could help you out of paganism, Nigel. Try the outreachjudaism site; Gerald Sigal writes many helpful books, and one more for you might find more helpful _Leaving Jesus_ by James Wood. I’ve read plenty of Christian/messy books like Y’shua, etc., as a Christian, all pretty easily disproven. God is better.

  53. Cody Flecker says:

    You have a pretty wife, but she needs to remove her eye makeup. She looks like Jezebel. I am sure that that was not her intention.

  54. He does not fulfill one qualification. And you obviously do not understand the sacrificial system at all. And human sacrifice? Good grief. Have you ever actually run the reference in the C. writings? None are about Jesus. No Talmud necessary to shatter Christianity. And I bet Rav Amnon didn’t need Talmud to restore this young man.

  55. I’ll tell you what you’d need to go and read the Bible because you are the worst wannabe Jew I’ve ever tried to debate with you need to forget silly books with wacky ideas and start and read Torah and come back when you know a bit more instead of being a smart ads and just pure ignorant your not fooling anybody. Especially G-d

  56. Jarrod Watts says:

    Cody Flecker Why thank you….I've never seen a picture of Jezebel though so I can't comment.

  57. Ellen Francis says:

    So you think Jesus was G-D? And you pray to Jesus? So where is G-D when this is happening? And where in the Torah does it say moshiach is G-D? Was Jesus G-D's son? EVERY Jewish man is G-D's son.

    WHY DO YOU OPEN YOUR COMMENTS TO CHRISTIAN PROPAGANDA WHICH COULD MISLEAD INNOCENT READERS WHO THINK THIS IS A JEWISH NEWS SITE

  59. jewish peoples can be very humourous, one of their better quality's,joke from jew, he said american jew arrived in jerusalem, said to taxi driver, take me too that place were all jews are crying and praying to god, taxi, took him too tax office,

    he also thinks it's not tznuah for women to drive, that is his latest thing. sorry, although he has a lot of good to say, he also verges on very dangerous, almost islamic thoughts when he says things like this.

  62. Dan Silagi says:

    This is the idiot who said that it was "immoral" for Jewish women to drive an automobile.

  63. @Jarrod Watts: "He was G_d on earth. You can't get bigger than that!"

    Sure you can: The real, eternal God, who is infinitely bigger than some man on earth.

    The concept of a "god on earth" was not invented by Christianity. It was around for a long time, and rejected by Judaism. (E.g., Zeus, Apollo, etc.)

  64. @Moshe – "And he said, Is it too little that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Yaácov, and to restore the netzrey of Yisraél? I will also give you for a light of the goyim, that you may be my yeshuah to the end of the earth." Yeshayahu 49:6

  65. David Berkovich says:

    Jarrod, to say that G-d became a man and walked on earth is painful to the ears of any Jew, or anyone that studies Torah, for that matter. Then, to go as far as saying that G-d, the creator of the heavens and earth died? What kind of god would die?! Not the G-d of Yisroel. It puzzles me how millions of people carry a "bible" and not learn that an infinite G-d would not, by any means, come to earth and live as a man. This sounds like out of a fairytale, a real bad one too.

We’ve completed Rosh Hashanah. We survived Yom Kippur. We enjoyed Sukkot. We celebrated Simchat Torah… What’s next? Chanukah!

As this week’s Parsha is Breishit (Genesis), we thought it would be interesting to run one of Rabbi Natan Slifkin’s talks on Torah, Creation… and Dinosaurs. The photo above is from the site AllAboutJerusalem.com and the article there talks about the dinosaur footprints that were found in Beit Zayit in Jerusalem.

Yishai debates a cynical friend about the Jewish State, talks about the lack of Sukkot in the Hague, and broadcasts from the Moshav Carlebach Music Festival.

Yishai is joined by Renowned Israeli cantor Binyamin Nakonechny and Malkah Fleisher in-studio with special Sukkot songs and stories. Listen in and get inspired!

Jeremy Gimpel sent us this amazing Sukkot related video linking the ancient with the modern…

Yishai presents a special Sukkot show directly from Jerusalem!

Yishai Fleisher talks to Zvika Klein, award-winning journalist covering the Diaspora beat for Makor Rishon and NRG, about the shocking reality of Jews living in refugee camps in Ukraine’s war zone. Also Gil Hoffman, VOI broadcaster and Chief Political Correspondent for the Jerusalem Post recounts the plight of another long-suffering Jew, Jonathan Pollard.
