A Pastor’s Journey

To Judaism

with Rabbi Yaakov Parisi

An intriguing story of an Evangelical Christian Pastor and his wife, Sarah, who in exploring the roots of their faith and their search for the truth, arrive at the doorsteps of Judaism.

Starting as a co-Pastor in 1987, Yaakov and his wife, began this life-altering journey. They attempted to understand doctrinal discrepancies which left them with many unanswered questions and no one to turn to. In 1992, Yaakov became pastor of his own church ‘smack dab in the middle’ of the ‘Bible Belt’. While searching for answers in the “Old Testament” their congregation actually began keeping Shabbos, the church’s main symbol was removed, and eventually the church was closed…and the Parisi’s converted to Judaism.
Their awesome and inspiring account is complete with many challenging moments and funny memories.
Yaakov and Sara Parisi are now Chabad and reside in Israel.

Get Around on Shabbos

Wouldn’t it be nice to meet more of the community, rather than eating at the same Shabbos table again and again? Or at least have Shabbos out of the apartment around a family table like back home?

Chaya Wolf will gladly get you and your friends in touch with gracious hosts who look forward to greeting new faces at their shabbos table!
Contact Chaya (any week by Wednesday evening) and have your plans arranged for you: or 646-404-2530


  1. Wow the pastor speaker looks really cool. I’m definitely looking forward to it!
