Rabbi Steve Berkson

Host

Born and raised in New York City of the tribe of Levi, Rabbi Berkson is well grounded in Torah and brings a Hebraic understanding to his teachings. He went to Hebrew school as a child and was Bar Mitzvah at age 13.  In 1986 Rabbi Berkson came to know Messiah Yeshua through the Worldwide Church of God where he continued to study and eventually ended up in the United Church of God (a splinter from the fragmented WCG) in Tampa, Florida, where he met and married his beautiful bride Juliana in 1998.  After moving to Knoxville in 1999, Rabbi Berkson was ordained and planted his first congregation. By 2001 he was serving congregations in Knoxville, Nashville, and Chattanooga, Tennessee.

In January 2010 Rabbi Berkson planted Beth Shalom Messianic Congregation in January 2012 where he and his family serve the needs of the Messianic Torah Observant community in the greater Chattanooga area.

Now Is The Time are segments from Steve’s teaching to his congregation in Tennessee.
