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 city of 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 felt the presence of God and drifted away from Judaism.
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.
Messiah Of Israel Ministries has been reaching the Holocaust Survivors, IDF soldiers, the Needy, Discipleship programs and so on.
Messianic Rabbi Zev Porat teaches from a unique Hebraic roots perspective of our faith in Yeshua, and how to prepare as the bride to meet the second coming of Yeshua the Messiah in the End Times.
Zev is a frequent guest on Freedom Friday Radio with Pastor Carl Gallups in the United States.
Zev has been heard nationally and internationally on Alfa Omega TV (Europe), CBN TV (Europe), Asian Christian Network TV, EFR Christian German TV and Radio, as well as many other radio programs throughout the United States and Europe, including the United Kingdom and Finland.
Zev has been interviewed several times on the TV program Why Israel, hosted by Rabbi David Naggi. This program airs on Alfa Omega TV, TBN TV, as well as other networks in Europe.
Zev’s ministry has been highlighted in several World Net Daily (WND) articles.
Zev has presented live teaching via SKYPE from Israel to the Highland, California congregation of Messengers of Messiah (Peter A. Michas, Founder, Senior Pastor and Teacher).
Zev earned a Rabbinic Sanhedrin certificate from the Ponevezh Yeshiva (School for Rabbis) in Bnei Brak, Israel. Glory to Yeshua, after Zev was saved, he returned the certificate to the Yeshiva.
Later on Zev became an ordained Messianic Rabbi (Pastor).
Zev leads many Messianic house groups in Israel, and daily Ministry outreaches in Synagogues and Mosques in Israel that have resulted in many Jews and Arabs coming to faith and salvation in Messiah Yeshua (Jesus).
Zev has shared the message of Yeshua through the Hebraic Roots around the world, including underground congregations in China.
Messianic Rabbi Zev Porat has performed many Messianic weddings.
Zev’s ministry is featured in Carl Gallups’ book, The Rabbi Who Found Messiah, including a new chapter added in the Kindle version (published by World Net Daily).
