About Me

God desires that ALL people would accept God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ. God has compelled me to share information with the world relating to the biblical seven year tribulation in order to share Truth in a deceived world.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. (John 1:1-5)

Jesus answered, "I AM the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

Jewish Herald-Voice
Daniel Cardinal DiNardo and Rabbi David Rosen of Jerusalem will share perspectives during the luncheon, which also features the election of Tracy Stein as the new chapter president and a thank you to David Barish, outgoing president.

Rabbi Rosen, chairman of the International Jewish Committee on Interreligious Consultations, a broad-based coalition of Jewish organizations representing world Jewry to other religions, is head of the department for interreligious affairs and director of the Heilbrunn Institute for International Interreligious Understanding of the American Jewish Committee.

He serves as an honorary president of the International Council of Christians and Jews; and as an international president of the World Conference of Religions for Peace.

In November 2005, Rabbi Rosen was made a papal Knight Commander of the Order of St. Gregory the Great for his outstanding contributions to promoting Catholic-Jewish reconciliation.

Rabbi Rosen was educated in England and Jerusalem. He served in the IDF and was chaplain to the forces in West Sinai. Subsequently, he served as the senior rabbi of the largest Jewish congregation in South Africa, in Sea Point, Cape Town, as well as on the Cape Beth Din (Ecclesiastical Court), and he was the founder/chairman of the Cape Inter-Faith Forum, the Council of Jews, Christians and Muslims.

Thereafter he was appointed chief rabbi of Ireland, during which time he also served on the Academic Council of the Irish School of Ecumenics. He returned to Israel in 1985 to take up the appointment of dean at the Sapir Center for Jewish Education and Culture in the Old City of Jerusalem and subsequently became professor of Jewish Studies at the Jerusalem Center for Near Eastern Studies. At that time, he also served with the Anti-Defamation League until 2001, when he assumed responsibility for the interfaith activities of the AJC based in Jerusalem.
