In 2001 Leon and Nina planted the Shavei Tzion (Return to Zion) community in Haifa to help reach Russian Jews from the former Soviet Union. Since then, it has grown from a fledgling Messianic Jewish congregation into a multi-faceted center.
Shavei Tzion is a place to worship the Lord, seek His will and hear His prophetic voice. There are educational opportunities for both children and adults. Outreaches include assisting the weak and needy, and a broadcast studio to help answer the questions of Jewish people seeking the truth. In addition, Shavei Tzion has planted a daughter congregation in Upper Nazareth.
