God is doing something special in our times. Abram Poljak, a Messianic Jewish luminary from the twentieth century, said, “The Messianic Jewish movement is the most important phenomenon of our time—the distinguishing feature indicating that the world has come to a turning point.”

One of the best examples of the reality of Poljak’s viewpoint is that Christians are desiring Messianic Jewish teaching more so now than we have seen since the days of the apostles.

Mike Eldred is an elder in a Lutheran Church and leads a Torah Club in Connecticut. Recently, the Torah Club staff had the opportunity to visit Mike. We asked him to share about how God is using Torah Club in his community.

Torah Club Staff: Mike, what led you to want to start a Torah Club?

Mike: I was called into ministry and assumed that it would be a typical pastor’s path. I started going to seminary and soon realized that there was a fire in my belly for Hebrew and Hebrew studies. It was more than just the language. I wanted to learn about the culture of the Bible and God’s people. This began a process that led me to Messianic Judaism, and I eventually found FFOZ and Torah Club.
