About 5 years ago my wife
suggested we start a music school. She herself loves music very much, and
all our kids play musical instruments, the older ones even on a
professional level (if you wish I can send you a video - just contact me).
The goals for the music school:
To give the children in our congregation a chance to receive good
To serve underprivileged new immigrant children in a humanitarian way
and keep them off the streets
To grant professional musicians an opportunity to teach instead of
"cleaning the streets"
To give both children and teachers the chance to learn the melody of
eternity under the umbrella of a Messianic Congregation
Now the Rainbow of Sounds Music School under the umbrella of Return to
Zion Ministries is in full swing. We have 45 students, many of whom are
very talented. The school employs 11 teachers part time - some of them
are believers, while others are far away from God, as is the case with
most immigrants from the former Soviet Union (that empire of failed
communism and belligerent atheism). But all of our teachers love the
atmosphere at the Messianic Congregation. For me this is a barometer of
activity or non-activity of the Holy Spirit.
Now allow me to introduce you to one of our teachers, an accomplished
My name is Mindia. I am a composer, arranger, producer and teacher. I
was born in 1973 in the city Batumi, Georgia in the Former Soviet Union.
After teaching music at university level, in 2012 I immigrated to Israel
and now live in Haifa. For one year now I have been teaching piano and
music theory at the "Rainbow of Sounds" School of Music and Arts under
the umbrella of "Return to Zion Ministries".
The school is like one big family. We rejoice together with our students.
Their success is also our success. Each time one of the kids advances in
musical expression, it stimulates me to continue and to create more and
No other activity unites the soul, spirit and mind like music - while
connecting us with our heritage and improving perception, empathy,
self-control and memory.
We would like to expand the school to include audio recording, as well as
advanced content such as arranging, harmony, acoustics and musical
Playing a music instrument requires a long term commitment. There are no
shortcuts to mastering a skill. This is especially important to impart
to our children, since today's world is bombarded with fast
technology and instant gratification. For this reason, we so appreciate
the chance to further develop the school.
Please pray for our music school, as a spiritual initiative - for the
Lord's face to shine upon all participants, students and teachers
alike, that they may open their hearts to Him. At the same time, I would
like to ask you to consider partnering with us financially in this
Blessings to you all.
