Tents of Mercy (Ohalei Rachamim in Hebrew) was founded in 1995 in the Haifa Bay area by Eitan Shishkoff, who continues to serve in an oversight capacity. In December 2016 Avishalom Tekle became the senior pastor and humanitarian aid director. He emigrated from Ethiopia’s Jewish community and is the grandson of a renowned rabbi. Tents of Mercy has birthed daughter congregations in Haifa and the Galilee. The facility is home to a Messianic synagogue, humanitarian aid warehouse/distribution center and pro-life counselling office.
