Avi Mizrachi in the UK

We would like to introduce you to Avi & Chaya Mizrachi, Directors of Dugit Messianic Outreach Centre and Pastors of Adonai Roi Congregation, located in the heart of Tel Aviv, Israel.  We are delighted to share with you that the Mizrachis will be travelling to the UK in June for a speaking tour around the country.

Avi is a Jewish Israeli, born in the port town of Jaffa (Joppa), who came to know the Lord in the early 80’s while visiting his sister in Florida.  He married Chaya a short time later and after they both studied at Christ for the Nations (CFNI) in Texas, they returned to Israel with a passion to share the gospel with their fellow Israelis.  In 1993, the Lord led Avi to open Dugit, an outreach centre in the heart of Tel Aviv offering free coffee, free literature and a listening ear to any visitors.  A few years later, Avi & Chaya started Adonai Roi, a messianic Hebrew speaking Congregation, to help integrate and disciple new believers and visitors that came through Dugit.

Avi is a recognized leader among the believers in Israel and an international conference speaker. It is his heart’s desire to bring the Gospel to Israelis and to disciple them to become strong believers, rooted and grounded in the Word of God.

Israel's Big Day Out

Mention the 4th of July to someone on the street, and most people know you’re talking about Independence Day in the USA.  Mention the 5th of Iyar and you will probably have people scratching their heads.  Ask about Iyar 5th in Israel however, and they will gladly tell you all about Israel’s Independence Day - a modern national holiday unlike any other!

This year, the celebration falls on 6th of May, and as each day in the Hebrew calendar starts at sunset the evening before, it is the night of the 5th that the party gets started.  Crowds hit the streets - young, old, middle aged and children, all ready to greet you and spray total strangers with shaving foam and silly string!  Cities host open air concerts that are free to all with music and dance.  Flags are the order of the day and people walk around, proudly bearing their national symbol emblazoned on hats, blow up hammers and flags draped around their shoulders as a sign of solidarity and survival.  The party goes on late into the night, with fireworks and general fun-loving revelry, long after the concerts have finished and the shaving foam canisters have run out!

The next day, the city wakes up a little later than usual, but it is not too long before everyone is out once more to enjoy the fine day and grab their favourite picnic spot on the beach or in the park.  Fly-overs and sail-bys, BBQs and beaches, family and fun are the order of the day, and unlike many some countries, beautiful, sunny weather is all but guaranteed!  Smoke rises from parks and picnic sites around the country as families and friends lay out rugs, food and fan their BBQs into flame.  It is impossible to walk around without salivating with the smell of cooked delicacies all around you.  And then the entertainment starts.  Aircraft of various
