Sandra Teplinsky is cofounding director, together with her husband Kerry, of Light of Zion Ministries. From an Orthodox Jewish background, Sandy came to faith in Jesus (Yeshua) at the University of Illinois, where she obtained her B.A. She earned her J.D. from Indiana University School of Law, and obtained seminary training at Talbot Seminary in Los Angeles.

A former litigation attorney, Sandy is now an author and ordained minister. She has been involved with the Messianic movement since 1980. Her passion is to see God's saving and transforming power released on Israel and the Church. Her biblical teaching and pastoral ministry releases a distinctly prophetic, Messiah-centered, Jewish reality to the Word of God, imparting His love in the power of the Spirit.

Based in Jerusalem, Sandy speaks internationally on God's heart and prophetic plans for Israel and the Church. She mobilizes intercessory prayer for Israel both within Israel as well as in the nations. She also served in outreach missions to the former Soviet Union, witnessing the unprecedented Russian Jewish revival of the 1990's.

Sandy's books include Why Care about Israel? How the Jewish Nation is Key to Unleashing God's Blessings in the 21st Century, published by Chosen Books; Israel's Anointing: Your Inheritance and End-Times Destiny through Israel, published by Chosen Books; The Blessing of Israel; and Out of the Darkness: The Untold Story of Jewish Revival in the Former Soviet Union.

Sandy loves long walks or horseback rides in the woods, mountains, along the beach, or anywhere else the beauty of God's creation declares His majesty. She's also an incurable animal lover. But her greatest gift from God is her amazing husband Kerry.


Kerry Teplinsky was raised in a Jewish home in Skokie, Illinois, a heavily Jewish community at the time. He attended synagogue and graduated from religious school in Skokie. Kerry earned his B.A. at the University of Illinois and M.D. at the University of Chicago. He came to faith in Jesus (Yeshua) after medical school. He practiced cardiology for 21 years until moving to Israel, where he is engaged in medical work and ministry.

Kerry has spent many years in Jewish ministry, both in America and abroad. He helped organize medical missions to the former Soviet Union in the 1990s, where he saw thousands of people in those nations make commitments of faith. Co-founder/director with his wife, Sandy, of Light of Zion, Kerry speaks and ministers on God's heart for Israel and the Church.

Kerry desires to see intercessory prayer groups raised up in churches around the world for the salvation of Israel and the Jewish people. His messages draw people into the love of God poured out through Yeshua, by His Spirit.
