Welcome to Restorers of Zion
We provide ways that you can give: You can help restore Israeli believers to the full strength, health, stability and fruitfulness available in the Lord. A Restorers-sponsored project brings a unique approach, where the goal is not to "rack up statistics" but to produce "fruit that remains".
We provide opportunities for you to receive: Believers worldwide are able to use Restorers to network with their Israeli brethren - for personal relationships, fruitful partnerships and spiritual enrichment - profiting from the gifts that are unique among Israeli believers.
Our goal is not Fundraising, it's Serving.
Sometimes Service requires funding, sometimes it requires different investments: time, prayer, exercising spiritual gifts, opening the heart and home. Restorers is working in areas where lack of money is not an obstacle... and where "throwing money at the problem" would not bring restoration.
Meet a ministry where
we and you TOGETHER
the "Restorers of Zion".
We are privileged to work in partnership with other Restorers who share our vision:
- Jewish and Gentile disciples of Yeshua
- believers in Israel and abroad
- congregations, individuals and ministries

IF? The End of a Messianic Lie
This book was published by Uri Marcus, aka Uriel ben-Mordechai, at the end of 2011. Shortly afterwards, the author wrote to a Messianic dissenter: “Do you know why you won't read my book? It is because you are afraid that you won't have answers to refute the arguments there.”
Although I give the Body of Messiah more credit than that, the odd fact is that this condemnation of the Messianic community (and particularly the Israeli Messianic community) has not been answered by a critical review in the 3-1/2 years it's been circulating. Eventually I was asked to take up Uriel’s challenge, by some who see me as uniquely equipped to do so.
In addition to the Review, readers can also access a linked file of Appendices which compare some the author's specific claims with credible sources.
Torah Answers for Anti-Missionaries
We issue a warm invitation to all believers, both Jewish and Gentile, who are harboring doubts (even in secret). If you have been troubled by inadequate answers to challenges from counter-missionaries, and honesty has compelled you to conclude that Yeshua cannot be the Messiah after all, or that it's wrong to call Him "G-d", this Torah-based web hub will encourage and strengthen you. We recommend that you start here for a pleasant shock.
We also issue a respectful challenge to our dati/frum Jewish brethren, to test your foundations. There are certain "givens" concerning rabbinic history, the chain of Torah transmission, and other assumptions that inform your view of Torah obedience. Regardless of your position on Yeshua, you cannot hope to merit the days of Moshiach unless you are first committed to deal only with the truth of G-d. Enter here... if you dare.
