Philip was born to an Orthodox Jewish family in Brooklyn, New York. His grandfather was the president and Rabbi of Beth Emmanuel, an Orthodox Synagogue in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn.
After his formal musical schooling and a concert at Carnegie Hall, Philip toured as the keyboard player with a national musical recording group and wound up in Nashville, Tennessee. He wrote for Frank Sinatra's music company, performed with gold record celebrities and finally settled in Atlanta, Georgia in 1977.
Shortly after becoming the father of a beautiful daughter, Stephanie, he suffered the devastating loss of his wife in an automobile accident. Philip and his daughter lived with much anguish until the Lord sent an angel of mercy.
Her name was Sheila and she reached out to this Jewish man and his daughter. A nurse by profession, she sensed their inner pain and was able to lead Philip to the only "true" healer, Yeshua (Jesus). As a Gentile believer, she showed them how to release their heavy burdens and to be free in their Jewish Messiah.
They soon began attending Congregation Beth Hallel, a Messianic Jewish Synagogue in Roswell, Georgia. Later that year, Philip and Stephanie joined Sheila and her children, David and Colleen in marriage. The Lord blended two broken families into one whole family in Him. They enjoy their Jewish roots and heritage and celebrate all the Biblical feasts and holidays.
Philip is now praising the Lord with the talent that He gave to him. His personal testimony is moving and powerful. His lyrics and melodies will stir you deeply; bring tears to your eyes and healing to your spirit. Listen to one of Philip's CD's and you will become a fan forever.
He now has a one-hour Messianic radio show (United in Messiah) on internet (WTRCradio.com) as well as reporting the "News from Israel" on that station.. Go to Press Page and choose radio, then scroll down to United in Messiah Radio Show and follow the directions.
