Messianic Rabbi- Shema Y'israel
Ruben Orona was raised in a Roman Catholic home. He studied Philosophy and Theology while in a Catholic Seminary in order to become a Catholic Priest. A turning point came in Ruben’s life when he read the 10 Commandments. He was very acquainted with the 10 Catholic Commandments, but for the first time he had an ‘encounter’ with the Ten Words in Exodus 20. An immediate movement of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Sprit) started to operate in Ruben. He started to compare both lists of commandments and soon realized something was wrong with the way he was trying to follow YHWH.
Currently, Pastor Ruben Orona holds a Degree in Science and works as a Registered Nurse. He has been a preacher for over 20 years and a pastor for over a decade. Happily married and with a child, Ruben spends the majority of his time studying and teaching Torah in different churches and synagogues.
