Meet the Speakers:
Jeff Siegel is a Jewish believer in Yeshua (Jesus). In 1976, at the age of 21, Jeff gave his life to Messiah Jesus but this decision did not come without a price. His family could not accept his faith and wanted nothing to do with Jeff after his acceptance of Jesus. The Lord began to work in Jeff’s life, bringing healing, restoration and direction. He also blessed Jeff with a terrific gift of evangelism. Jeff has been in ministry for many years, bringing the love of Messiah literally to the entire world by using his love for and experience in baseball as a means to share the Good News. In 2001, Jeff had the privilege of seeing both his father and brother come to know Yeshua. Jeff’s burden is not only to see his own family come to know their Messiah, but for all his Jewish brethren worldwide. The Lord has planted Jeff and his wife Terri in Westchester County, a suburb of New York City that is home to hundreds of thousands of Jewish people. Jeff is currently the Director of the Greater New York Area ministry for Chosen People Ministries. He continues to share the Good News to all who will hear, to the Jew first
and also to the Gentile. (Rom. 1:16)

At age 9 Steve’s life took a drastic turn when his father died rather suddenly. This began a 20-year downward journey of drug and alcohol abuse and severe depression for which he was hospitalized numerous times. Finally arrested for drug possession in New Orleans, his life seemed to be hopeless.
In the late 1960s he turned to LSD and Eastern religion like many of his peers. This led him onto a “spiritual path” which ultimately led to a radical life changing encounter with Jesus the Messiah. His life was changed radically and dramatically as he was no longer addicted to anything but new life in Messiah!
Today he is the father of three beautiful daughters, and grandfather to 2 granddaughters. Together with his wife Carol they lead Sha’ar Adonai, the largest Messianic Jewish Congregation in New York City.
David was born in Uruguay from Argentine Jewish parents and grew up in Europe where his father was coordinating the relocation of Holocaust survivors. He and his wife Julia live in New York City.
