Kibbutz Ramat Yohanan

After celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles with the Worldwide Church of God in Jerusalem, in 1982, I continued on to serve as a volunteer at Kibbutz Ramat Yohanan near Haifa in Northern Israel. Ramat Yohanan was the beginning of my kibbutz volunteer service, that ultimately included 8 kibbutzim, a moshav and precious months in Jerusalem! It was at Ramat Yohanan that I met Miriam Weiss, who "adopted" me and became my "kibbutz mother."

The following are pictures of my fellow kibbutz volunteers from Scotland, England, Sweden, France, Germany, the United States, Australia, the Netherlands, etc. at Ramat Yohanan, and on a trip to the Golan Heights, Akko, Rosh Hanikra; a few pictures of Worldwide Church of God member Simcha Gombo and her daughter, Michal, who lived nearby in Kiryat Ata, as well as pictures of Ilan Itzhayek and family (his mother baked a birthday cake for my 33rd birthday) from Kiryat Ata; pictures of Ilan and I in Jerusalem for Hanukkah (where I met Yitzhak Rabin), where, as *David Hoover, I was able to write the preliminary introduction to America Warned! - on the Temple Mount - that has since been published as Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall, as well as a picture of Ambassador College graduate Sylvia Owens, during a visit to the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, and Jerusalem's Liberty Bell Park that includes The Children's Playground sponsored by the Ambassador International Cultural Foundation.

*My name was David Hoover, but I legally changed it to David Ben-Ariel in 1989, as I testify in God-given Names and From Toledo to Jerusalem.

Face it. You changed you name to a Hebrew name is to convert Jewish people into your false religion of Christianity. and LMAO . G-d -given? You decided that name for yourself. and to seek citizenship of Israel. Purpose? To convert Jews to Christianity! People like you should be banned from Israel. Jewish state is founded to protect Jews and Judaism. Continue on the traditions that have been practised for thousands and thousands of years. And then you comes along and tries to ruin it. That is against G-d. Your actions are blasphemy! Jews are Guardians and Teachers of the Torah for Gentiles and you should respect that. Their 613 commandments are G-d given to them forever and ever, unlike your name which you choosed for yourself.

David Ben-Ariel said...

Ben, sounds like you've almost convinced yourself to believe your own lies! Why do you insult Jews, acting like they're so weak and easily converted because somebody legally changed their name? How ridiculous! I feel sorry for you.

My name was legally changed from David Hoover to David Ben-Ariel TWENTY YEARS AGO, as related within my articles God-given Names and From Toledo to Jerusalem.

Why have all those Jews changed their names, hidden their Hebrew names, to subvert and convert Christians? They testify against your ignorance!

And IF you're Jewish, you appear to be just one more hypocritical Jew who fails to follow Judaism to the Jewish homeland where you belong, as many of the 613 commandments prove that you disrespect.

If the professing Christian countries applied the stringent standards self-righteous Jews like you preach (in your hypocritical self-imposed exile), you would be thrown out for being so hateful against Christian Zionists. Shame on you!
