Return to Zion Congregation

Return to Zion Congregation was established by Leon and Nina Mazin in 2001, with Russian-speaking immigrants from the former Soviet Union comprising ninety-nine percent of the congregation. In 2004, the congregation birthed a daughter congregation, called Branch of Galilee, located in Upper Nazareth.
The vision of Return to Zion is to “Restore faith in Yeshua in Israel in our days.” We do this through humanitarian and educational outreaches such as Oasis Media (a Russian language media ministry), Rainbow of Sounds Music School, a food distribution program, Haifa Theological Institute and a ministry to Holocaust survivors.
