My Jewish Roots

Rachel Baron
Innovation, Solutions & Expansion Strategist

Very dear D'Vorah,
DVORAH was an important prophet, there is a reason for your name.
D’Vorah is a bee, it pollinates and gives honey.

All the above have a connection to who you are!  
Simply put: “PURE HONEY"

May your light always glow and reach all corners of the world,
May it bring warmth, brightness, hope,

and salvation to all who are helpless and less fortunate.

May G-D always shower countless blessings on you and forever protect you..

My Story

Blessed Be HIS Name

My Testimony About Finding My Jewish Roots

We Can Trust Our LORD! 


Being a Jew is about being set apart. Being HIS and leaning on HIM only.
The firstborn blessing also means suffering, because we need to learn the concept of LECH LECHA which G-d told Avraham! 

Meaning leave everything behind and follow ME! Coming to the point that you can say I want YOU G-d no matter what they say think do AND whatever YOU chose to happen, I will follow YOU and OBEY YOU.
I said that to Him in 2000 on my deathbed! (cancer) I surrendered! Totally. 

And Abba healed me suddenly instantly after the treatments which did not work. We need to live a set-apart holy life. Rest in HIM as He circumcises the heart. He will write the LAW (of love) upon your heart.
It is like being a salmon swimming against the stream. 

But you will be fruitful! Now think about those who say they support Israel but call our G-d nonsense.
You strip us from the essence of being a JEW!   

It was the Father, my Abba, Who told me about my Jewish roots.
It was the Father, Who led others, into my life, to give me a prophecy, to give me gifts, to confirm, and to encourage.

Teus Schep ⁺ (May his memory be a blessing) my dearest brother and friend, wrote a foreword in my book, in which he boldly spoke about my roots. When I asked him why? Was his answer plain and simple:
"Because the Father said so."  
For a long time, I had to keep my mouth, sometimes I was allowed to share some things with someone, but this is the first time I may, no, I must share it in the open. For I`m born for such a time as this.
Too much has happened, to share all His signs and wonders and confirmations, all at once.
But one thing is for sure, HE calls us back and HE decides when we need to make Aliyah!
Follow His lead, and do not lean upon your own understandings!  


My mamme's "wordly" name in Jewish Gematria.

Be Ready At Eight <> I received my first prophetic word, when I was eight. He Who Promised Is Faithful.

Blue Eyes <> My Mamme had black hair but her eyes were so -beautiful- blue.  

G-d Prophecy  <> Mamme gave me in the hands of the LORD,*** and He gave me a divine calling.

Her Hebrew Name was Leah Pnina and my Bubbes Name Pnina. 

My mom had a near-death experience after giving birth to me;
G-d spoke to her that He would give her extra time, up to about thirty years.
Two months after my birthday He took her home.

In June 1967 I received a word: "He Who Promised Is Faithful," and someone wrote it in my poetry album.
I did not know anything about my roots; little did I know about the six-day war.


The Six-Day War (Hebrew: מִלְחֶמֶת שֵׁשֶׁת הַיָּמִים, Milhemet Sheshet Ha Yamim; Arabic: النكسة, an-Naksah,
"The Setback" or حرب 1967, Ḥarb 1967, "War of 1967," also known as the June War, 1967 Arab–Israeli War, or Third Arab–Israeli War, was fought between 5 and 10 June 1967 by Israel and the neighboring states of Egypt (known at the time as the United Arab Republic), Jordan, and Syria. 

Then some years later, I received a word that I kept in my heart without sharing it with anyone.
But the words which I carried in my heart since childhood are coming to pass in front of my eyes.  


In the 70s, while I was watching ***Corrie ten Boom's movie "The Hiding Place" with my mother,  
I experienced it as if I was in a vision. While looking at the images of Westerbork, Vucht and Ravens Bruck, I suddenly knew for sure that I was connected to the Jewish people and that I would have a task in connection with and for them in the future. 


When G-d took my mom home,  I inherited her Bible, and in it, I found a piece of paper, where Hannah gives her child back to G-d.*** But I had drifted away from G-d.  
I won a ticket to Spain, -  I could visit Spain for ten days for free included a hotel and touring car. -
and I met Yochanan on that bus. Although the spark of love was there immediately, we both built walls around our hearts, because of things we both had experienced as it turned out later. Some weeks after that trip, I heard my father was dying, and I cried out to G-d.




At the same moment the phone rang, and I heard a voice saying:
"This is Yochanan, the guy you met on the bus to Spain.
I am standing in my parent's living room.
I was taking a shower when I heard a voice,
"Call the lady you met on the bus to Spain, call her now."
And I could dial your number instantly." Without realizing how special and miraculously this was, I told him my father was dying, and I was desperate. He came, he was there for me, took me to my father's sickbed, took me to my father's funeral, and then we started to talk about what had happened. I cried out to G-d, and he heard a voice telling him to contact me. To make a long story short, we married.  

We started our journey together as Christians and in 1995  Abba gave me a task.
Which has been confirmed, through several Jewish men.

Years later a Jewish guy called Eliezer Braun, whom we interviewed for our TV program The Seven Pillars Of Wisdom, looked at me, while we were preparing for the program, and while he was talking about the situation in Israel, and the persecution Jews had to face, his eyes almost fell out of their eye sockets, as he stuttered several times while pointing his finger to me, "you know, you know it, you know all about it," Yochanan who was busy preparing the camera's calmly turned his face towards him, and said: " But of course her maiden name is Meijer ;)  

 G-d gave me a foundation that He wanted me to call Teshuva.
A Christian Lady who worked for Israel products gave me a Messianic Magazine, and she said that G-d had told her to do so. In that magazine on the very last page, the word TESHUVA jumped off the page so to speak. This very same lady also gave me a scripture, some years later. And confirmed my Jewish roots.  
-Since that moment, different people, were called by G-d, to tell me things or confirm things.
But it was all about Jewish roots. And all prophecies I received directly from G-d or through others were always connected to Yerushalayim.   I received crystal coasters, engraved with the star of David, from Marianne, my dear friend, on my 50th birthday,  who bought them for herself, but G-d spoke to her and said: "They once belonged to a Jewish family, and now they need to go back to their roots.  ​​​​​

After G-d healed me miraculously from cancer in the blink of an eye,
I heard the voice of G-d, and He told me that I would find a Jewish cemetery and then I would meet a guy who had something to do with Jewish graves. And then He said, I would see what the great "I Am" would do further.

It happened exactly as I heard. And the guy I met turned out to be a leader of a group who repairs and cleanses Jewish graves which are damaged by those who hate us. He invited me to a Synagogue.
As my husband and I entered the building, I almost fainted. I came HOME, which I also experienced when I visited Israel. 


In 2005 I met a Jewish woman who came to our studio for an interview for our radio program "Shammah"  Before she left, she told me,
" G-d will take you to Israel!"  I did not tell anyone. But out of the blue we received money on our bank account with the message: " For your trip to Israel."  It came from a Dutch Christian lady, who, when we confirmed her message, was surprised when we told her how G-d had revealed to a Jewish woman that I had to visit Israel.  To make a long story short, we wanted to make sure if this all truly came from G-d.  
So, we asked Him several things, which would be impossible IF WE WOULD NOT TAKE CARE OF THINGS OURSELVES, but of course, nothing is impossible for our G-d! We asked Him for someone to take care of all the animals. We asked Him for a place to sleep, but please Abba, not a hotel. We have asked Him so much, but we have not shared it with anyone. People came to tell us they would take care of the kittens!  And the same lady who send us money, for the trip,  also said that she wanted to take care of the dogs, without us asking her. How is that possible, you might think, The King was in the field! 

It was HIS plan and HIS doing!  We were invited to stay in Israel with our friend Paul Sherbow ( Pesach) from IFBN where we broadcasted our radio program Shammah. Paul said, when we were going back home, 

"Next time you visit Israel, it will be totally different." Many years later, he explained that G-d already showed him, back then, I am Jewish, and HE told Paul, I would have found my roots for 100% when I would visit again. ***

 We were able to rent a car for a cheap price almost a new one.  

All things we prayed about, miraculously were available. And we had not told people anything!  


When Abba brought me to Israel I learned about Shabbat and since then, I learned more about His feasts about Torah and my Jewish roots. The story is all about signs and wonders, and most of all about HIS faithfulness. In His time, He will bring me home. It is all about Elohey Av'raham, Yitz'chak Ya'acov!   

Abba led me to a family tree of my Mamme, a friend of the family made it.  

Due to (forced) conversions and well-kept family secrets we lost track of our roots.*** And I also found the family tree of my Avi.

Thanks to my LORD I am the one who can proudly and unashamed tell everyone who wants to know,
I am a Jewess!  אלוהי אברהם יצחק ויעקב Blessed Be HIS Name.  


In the 80th's I had a large plant in the hall of my home. I had a dream that a leaf was detached from the original plant. But no matter how far away it was from the main vein, blood flowed between the leaf and the natural branch. 

So many years later I was allowed to know the meaning.
Jew in Diaspora, no matter how far away, still Jewish. G-d made sure that I found photos of my deceased family. 

The Jewish faces with black hair, are staring at me.
I started to understand some things which I never understood before. 

The freesias, bought by my father, for Saturday. (Shabbat)
The words that were spoken by my Bubbe. 

And things that I keep for myself, but which are a huge confirmation and blessing. And given by G-d. Pieces of the jigsaw puzzle fall into place. And G-d gave me a house in an area that, after Amsterdam, had one of the largest populations of Jews. All taken away, all gassed. But my maiden's name is on the synagogues and on the war memorials. And then Bubbe, who in retrospect clearly spoke Yiddish.

Wow, how big is our G-d!

"More is to come,” He said. " But you need to trust me! Allow ME to finish what I started."​​​

*** Cornelia Johanna Arnolda ten Boom (or just Corrie ten Boom) (April 15, 1892 – April 15, 1983) was a Dutch evangelist and Christian Holocaust survivor. She helped nearly 800 Jews escape the Nazis during World War II. Ten Boom co-wrote her autobiographyThe Hiding Place. It was later made into a movie of the same name. In December 1967, Ten Boom was given the award of "Righteous Among the Nations"' by the State of Israel.

Benjamin in Biblical Hebrew


Benjamin <> Benjamin is a Hebrew name that means ‘son of the right hand’.
The name is derived from the Old Testament of the Bible. Ben means ‘son’ and yāmīn translates to ‘right hand’ or ‘right side’.
According to the Hebrew Bible, Benjamin's name arose when Jacob deliberately changed the name "Benoni", the original name of Benjamin, since Benoni was an allusion to Rachel's dying just after she had given birth, as it means "son of my pain".

The noun בן (ben) means son, or more general: a member of one particular social or economic node — called a "house", which is built upon the instructions of one אב ('ab), or "father" — within in a larger economy (hence: the "sons of the prophet" are the members of the prophet-class; the prophets). This noun obviously resembles the verb בנה (bana), to build, and the noun אבן ('eben), stone.

Our noun's feminine version, namely בת (bat), means daughter, which resembles the noun בית (bayit), meaning house. Sometimes our noun is contracted into a single letter ב, whose name beth comes from בית (bayit) and means "house" as well. As a prefix, the letter ב (be) means "in." The word for mother, אם ('em), is highly similar to that of tribe or people, אמה ('umma).

The city of Jerusalem was originally assigned to Benjamin (Joshua 18:28, Judges 1:21). The tribe of Benjamin was decimated after the atrocities committed in Gibeah (Judges 19-21) but still, a generation later Israel's first king was from the surviving remnant of Benjamin 1 Samuel 9:1Mordecai, whose adopted daughter Esther helped to avoid Israel's annihilation, was a Benjaminite Esther 2:5.

25 Thus saith Adonoi Hashem: When I shall have gathered the Bais Yisroel from the people among whom they are scattered, and I shall show Myself as set apart as kodesh in them in the sight of the Goyim, then shall they dwell in their adamah (land) that I have given to Avdi Ya’akov  (My servant Yaakov).​
