Our Teachers

Our teachers represent a variety of Rabbis and teachers of Torah instruction. We are pleased that prominent Rabbis have committed to teach Torah lessons to the nations. You will find that each one of these teachers have their own method of teaching which brings honor to the word of G-D.


Ira Michaelson

Ira was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, and attended Bnai Israel an Orthodox Shul led by one of the trailblazers of the “kiruv” movement, Rav  Avner Geman  zt”l.  Unfortunately, as a young man Ira was drawn away from traditional Judaism and succumbed to the missionary message. This former Hebrew Christian leader brings over twenty years of experience in various Christian groups. This gives him a fresh perspective on tactics used by the major Hebrew Christian organizations used to convert Jews to Christianity. He now works tirelessly to keep Jews Jewish, and to bring rectification and unification to the Jewish community.His passion for Torah and Tikun Olam (repair of the world) is what has driven him to launch the Torah Threads website. Ira is currently the “Outreach Coordinator” for Jews4Judaim East , www.j4jeast.org
