JudeandJen2
Senior Rabbi and Rebbitzen
 
Rabbi Jude Caracelo is originally from New York and grew up in Brevard County, FL.  He came to know Yeshua as his messiah at the age of 16, and shortly thereafter his family started attending Kol Mashiach Messianic Synagogue.  In July of 2012, Jude was ordained and became the Assistant Rabbi under Rabbi Dr. Alan Levine until God opened the door to move to Savannah, GA in 2014.
 
Jude is an Italian Jew, and both his parents are descendants of conversos (Jews that were forceably converted to Catholicism).  Conversos publicly became Catholics but still retained their Jewish traditions and heritage in secret for fear of persecution.  Today, many Spanish and Italian people are rediscovering their lost Jewish ancestry.  These events are a fulfillment of God’s Word.  Over and over again, God warned His people that they would be “scattered throughout the nations,” yet He also promises to “regather them as a people.”
 
Jude is married to Jennifer, also a Messianic Jew.  Together, they have six children.  The Caracelos have worked in messianic ministry for over 20 years in various capacities, serving as youth leaders, music leaders, and teachers.  The Lord called them to Savannah, GA to plant and shepherd Keren Ohr Messianic Synagogue.
 
Assistant Rabbi and Rebbitzen
 
Assistant Rabbi Larry Greenhaus was born on Long Island, New York to secular Jewish parents.  Larry married Eileen in 1988, found Yeshua as his Messiah in 1990, and started attending Beth Emanuel Messianic Synagogue in Holtsville, NY at the age of 31.  During his 18 years at Beth Emanuel, Larry served on the Business Board, co-led the Care Ministry with Eileen, and served in various ministries.  Due to a job change in 2008, he and Eileen moved to Melbourne, Florida and began attending Kol Mashiach Messianic Synagogue.  During their 10 years at Kol Mashiach, Larry served the congregation in various capacities and also began a Prayer Ministry.  Larry has a heart for both personal prayer and seeing corporate prayer having a larger role in people’s lives.
 
Eileen is also from Long Island, New York.  She was raised in a Christian home, and has been very active leading and serving in ministry within the messianic synagogues they have attended.  They have two adult daughters with families of their own.  In April 2018, the Lord called them to Savannah, GA to serve as the assistant rabbi and rebbitzen.  Together, they share a desire to serve the Keren Ohr community and see the light of Yeshua spread throughout Savannah.
