Avner Boskey

Negev, Israel

Over the last two decades Avner and Rachel have raised their family in the Negev. During these years they established weekly worship and prayer meetings for local believers and for thousands of visitors from many nations. They have written and recorded much original Messianic worship music. They oversee a loose-knit community of worshippers, intercessors and prophetic artists in the Negev. They have hosted seminars on the prophetic gifts and prophecy in Scripture. They have shared the good news of Israel’s Redeemer, and have helped to foster an increase in Messianic ministry in the Negev.

Avner regularly writes informative newsletters to encourage prayer for Israel and to help God’s people be more aware of current events in Israel and around the world from a biblical perspective.

Avner and Rachel are blessed by the Lord with four sons and two daughters-in-law. They oversee a recording studio where they both record their own music and help young Messianic Israeli artists develop and record their own music. Avner  is the author of the book ‘Israel the Key to World Revival,’ A Perspective on Islam’ and ‘A Messianic Perspective on the Restoration of David’s Tabernacle’ available at www.davidstent.org. Avner and Rachel have released five CDs – ‘Old & New’ (1993), ‘Ancient Gates’ (2001), ‘LaKatzir—For the Harvest’ (2001), ‘Four Winds’ (2011), and ‘Dry Bones Boogie‘ (2015), all available at www.davidstent.org through David’s Tent Music.

Kerry Teplinsky

Jerusalem, Israel

Kerry is co-founder and Vice President of Light of Zion. A former medical doctor, he now serves full time with the ministry in overseeing all operations, in teaching and facilitating prayer, and in humanitarian outreach. He is ordained as an itinerant pastor and has served with the Messianic Jewish movement since 1992. Kerry’s expertise is on modern Israeli history and the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Kerry comes from an American Conservative Jewish community. He came to faith in Yeshua after achieving educational, career and worldly success, but finding no genuine fulfillment in them. Kerry earned his BA at the University of Illinois and MD at the University of Chicago. He was a member of the teaching faculty of the University of Chicago School of Medicine; served as volunteer faculty at Ben Gurion University in the Negev; and worked as physician volunteer with Hadassah Hospital Hospice Center in Jerusalem. He is certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Disease, and Critical Care Medicine. For over 25 years, Kerry brought his faith in Yeshua to his practice of medicine and witnessed supernatural healings.

Kerry organized medical missions to Jewish communities in the former Soviet Union in the 1990s, where he saw thousands of people make commitments of faith. He has been called the “Messianic heart doctor” for one’s spirit as well as body.

Kerry has a heart for the sick and needy in Israel. He reaches out to individual Israelis in personal and group homes, guided by the biblical parable of sheep and goats. In that parable Yeshua speaks to His followers about caring for His family in the last days: “The righteous will say ‘Lord, … When did we see you sick … and go to visit you?’ The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” (Matthew 25:31-46)

Kerry and Sandy have a daughter who serves the Lord as a nurse in Jerusalem in pediatric oncology.
