Rabbi & Mrs. Jay Howard

Rabbi Jay Howard has been teaching the Hebrew Roots of the Christian Faith for more than twenty years. Raised in a non-religious home, it was a gift from Adonai when He revealed to Jay that he had been adopted at two, and his name was changed.  Born an Utzinger and being Jewish, his desire is now to equip the followers of Yeshua with the knowledge of the Torah so that they may walk out the lifestyle that YHWH desires for us. By teaching Torah principles we are all becoming one new man and one in The Messiah, with the same Torah, the One True God and One True Life.  Rabbi Howard teaches character change within the boundaries of the Torah, as we were never meant to stray from the teachings and instruction of God, His Torah, and so we are fulfilling the great commission to preach the Good News of Yeshua, which is the truth of His Torah, filled with the Spirit and love of The Lord.
Learning to live as a Hebrew and walk the way Adonai intended for us, means more than mere head knowledge.  It means changing our life.  It means looking into our self and peeling off the layers of bitterness and hurt. 
Rabbi Howard's roots go deep into Southwestern AZ where he and his family ranched 66,000 acres for most of his young life.  For the past 23 years he has been raising natural beef in Colorado. His 5 children and and their spouses are all walking in Torah and actively serving in the ministry. His wife of 32 years has written two books and is a breast cancer survivor, teaching skills of forgiveness and how it relates to healing. All of his family actively serve in the ministry of Simchat HaMashiach Beit Emunah.
