love one anotherArni and Yonit Klein met and married in New York City in 1969. They came to faith in Yeshua in 1973 out of the counter-culture movement and immigrated to Israel in 1992. They have two children, Jonathan and Stephanie, and four grandchildren.  Arni is Jewish from Austrian, Polish and Russian descent, and Yonit’s ancestors were from England, Italy and Wales.  Prior to 2000 they served as congregational elders, directed a music ministry, and produced a music and drama street outreach.  Arni has recorded an album of original Hebrew songs for seekers (“One Way Ticket”), and their journey to faith “Nothing to Lose” is published in Hebrew and German and can be found on this website in English.  From 1999 to 2012 they built and stewarded centers in Tel Aviv and the Judean Hills to provide a place for brethren from Israel and the nations  to pray and minister to the Lord.  From 1998 to 2003 they worked with First Nations peoples from various countries to help them understand their calling and unique role in God’s plans for Israel.  Since 2003 they have worked extensively in Germany with a focus on building a bridge between the youth in both nations.  They have been part of the community of believers in the Tel Aviv area for 13 years, Jerusalem for 8 years, and currently reside in a village near Tiberias.  For more information you can go to “The History of Emmaus Way.”
