Roeh Israel today, is a congregation of Jewish and Gentile believers in Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah. Congregation Roeh Israel was started by Eliezer Urbach while he was working for Chosen People Ministries. It began as a small home fellowship and grew quickly from there. Within a few years this small home fellowship had outgrown Eliezer's living room, and in 1980 he was moved by God to start an independent congregation. In 1980, Roeh Israel was born. Burt Yellin was called to be the Pastor/Rabbi in 1985, where he still serves the Lord today. In 1991, Bill Berg was called to be the Associate Pastor, where he served until he went to be with the Lord in December 2018. What began as a fellowship has now grown to some 300 people.
