Simcha Pearlmutter was born in Boston, MA andis now a citizen of Israel. After completing Hebrew school he earned a B.A. degree from Boston University. He also studied two years at the Boston Universit of Law. After college, Mr. Pearlmutter moved to Miami, FL where he worked as a court reporter.
In 1966 he took his wife and children and moved to Israel where he settled in the Arava (desert), 30 kilometers south of the Dead Sea. His purpose in moving to the Arava was to see the prophecy of Isaiah 35 fulfilled, established Kibbutz Ir-Ovot and to proclaim the name of Yeshua HaMashiach as the redeemer of Israel.
Simcha's life experience in Israel has been one of struggling with a wasteland and facing hostilities from many quarters.
Rabbi Pearlmutter's name is known all around the world and many inquiries are received from all parts of the Christian church world regarding the validity of combining orthodox Judaism with the belief in Yeshua.
