Walk in the Footsteps of St. Paul.

The JudeoChristian underpinnings of the USA originated in the Middle East a couple of millennia ago. Damascus, Syria is considered to be one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, with evidence of settlement dating back to at least 11,000 years ago. Jeffrey brings this city alive as the destination for Saul's conversion to Paul on the road to Damascus, his escape and the continuing influence on our belief system. You will never watch the news the same!

Stopping Antisemitism for the Benefit of All.

Antisemitism is as old as the Pharaohs of Egypt. It did not just begin with the Reformation, the Pogroms of Czarist Russia or the Holocaust. While it is important to understand the history of antisemitism, it is equally important to understand how this form of racism as with all racist and prejudicial beliefs can and must be turned around. How can we adhere to our First Amendment protections and yet not push back on the antisemitism that is wracking our nation, especially college and university campuses? Let's join in Martin Luther King's dream.


Sharia, Islam & Freedom in America.

Islam is more than a religion. It is a way of living. Its rules, when applied as intended, govern all daily actions and relationships. The first step in addressing the conflicts we see in our country is understanding the different cultural underpinnings of our society and how the different cultures can impact our lives. Jeffrey brings a deeply personal perspective to this question and conflict.
