A History of Tikkun: The North and the South

irst of all Eitan planted his congregation called Tents of Mercy, Ohalai Rachamim, and was planted to be an indigenous, Israeli-governed, Israel-centered equivalent of a 501-c3 in the United States, a non-profit. It's called an amutah in Israel. Ohalei Rachamim was his amutah and that expanded into humanitarian aid and then into five congregations over the years. Now we have five congregations under Ohalei Rachamim and three humanitarian aid centers in Acco, Haifa, and in between the two in the Kraiyot, in Kiryat Yam. Nazareth Ilit has something of a humanitarian dimension as well, but the main humanitarian aid centers are those three.

Then Asher also started an amutah in the south called Revive Israel. Also very interesting because out of that discipleship training center that he established in the Jerusalem area has come in connection to four congregations in the south, two of which Asher is directly in shepherding, in a sense. The primary senior pastor of our Jerusalem congregation is Eddie Santoro, but Asher is the overseer and original leader. He is also leading a group in Tel Aviv called Tiferet Yeshua.

Both of these congregations are becoming very significant in size and growth. In Tiferet Yeshua in Tel Aviv there is a growth in evangelism that is very exciting, as well. We're seeing this in Jerusalem, but even more in Tel Aviv.
