Our Teachers

Israel Nick Amic


Israel Nick Amic has been teaching for the past 20 years in the Messianic Movement on a wide variety of subjects in adult, youth, and children’s education—including enjoying the position of youth leader for five years for one of the premier Messianic congregations in Southern California. Outside of the Messianic world, he taught in public school for two years and co-owned and ran a tutoring agency for over 12 years. He brings his background in Chassidut, Yeshiva-style education, and a commitment to including the teachings of the Apostolic Writings (New Testament) into every class he teaches. He has a passion to help raise up the next generation of followers of Messiah. He is committed to transmitting his education, received in the larger Jewish world, to tomorrow’s Messianic leaders. He currently attends Beth Immanuel Messianic Synagogue in Hudson, WI, where he leads programs for young adults and enjoys educating on various platforms for the larger Messianic world.

Abby Schwab


Abby is a Messianic Gentile with a deep love for learning and teaching others. She recognizes the importance of passing our faith on to the next generation and regularly teaches weekly Shabbat classes for teen girls. She is also involved in teaching Hebrew and Torah to elementary-aged children at Beth Immanuel Messianic Synagogue’s Torah School. Abby believes making connections enhances learning and works to get to know each of her students individually.

Yoshi Mcleod


Yoshi McLeod has been active in teaching teenagers in the Messianic Jewish community for over 8 years. He grew up in Seattle’s oldest messianic synagogue, Beit Hashofar, and has spent extensive time learning in the wider Jewish community, as well as in Israel. These experiences have given him a passion for passing a love for Yeshua faith within traditional Judaism on to the next generation. His love for teaching is evident in his many years serving as a camp counselor for Messianic summer camps. In that role, Yoshi has taught Torah and davening and learned how to cultivate meaningful mentor relationships with his students. Yoshi received a Bachelor of Arts in Jewish Studies in 2012 from the University of Washington. He currently attends Beth Immanuel Messianic Synagogue in Hudson, WI, and teaches in their children’s Torah school.

Our Technology

Moodle is a user friendly and adaptive way to organize class materials, communicate with students and parents, and foster collaboration between students. For the live, online classroom component we use Zoom.us.
