Rabbi Alan Levine was born into a Jewish home in Sullivan County, N.Y. (in the Catskill Mountains, often called “The Jewish Alps”!). While in college, like so many of his friends, he was exposed to many “New Age” and Eastern religious practices, and Judaism became no more than an occasional cultural experience. It was not until years later that, after being exposed to the New Testament, he came to realize that it was a Jewish book about a Jewish Messiah. After accepting Yeshua as the Messiah, his life started changing over the next few years. He knew that God wanted him to reach out to Jewish people in the Brevard County area.
Trained and accredited to practice Chiropractic, Rabbi Alan opened his Melbourne practice in 1979. As time went on, the calling to seek training as a Messianic rabbi led to his interim rabbinic s’micha (ordination) in 1990, and full ordination in 1992. He closed his Chiropractic office in 1994, to better serve the congregation.
Rabbi Alan and his wife Diana founded Kol Mashiach Messianic Synagogue in 1989. He is the Co-Chairman of the Southeast Regional Conference on Messianic Judaism, held each year in Orlando, FL. This conference is the largest regional Messianic conference of its kind. He is also a regular speaker at both the SE Regional Conference and the MJAA (Messianic Jewish Alliance of America) Messiah Conference, held each year in Harrisburg, PA.
