Rabbi Brian and Rebbetzin Sue Samuel were ordained to lead Mishkahn David Messianic Synagogue in August 2013, as Rabbi Peter and Lisa Oliveira followed Adonai's calling to move to Haiti and be a light to that nation. Rabbi Brian and Sue have been involved in the Messianic Jewish movement since 1996, when they first attended congregation Beth Zion Messianic Synagogue in New Jersey. They moved to Rhode Island in 2007 and have served as elders at Mishkahn David since 2010. They continue to have the blessed privilege to sing to the Lord in music ministry across the country in support of Sue Samuel's Music Ministry.
Sue has released three albums to date: “Promises,” “Songs-From the Secret Place,” and “Home Away From Home.” She has led worship and shared powerful concerts with her original music in conferences and congregations all over the country.
Beit Tikvah is located at 7935 136th Avenue SE in Newcastle and is led by Rabbi Hylan Slobodkin.
