Devar Jonah



Devar Jonah is A Ministry to the incarcerated, everywhere.

Devar” translates to bringing The Word into The World!

The Book of Jonah teaches a universalism that inspires a vision of values that apply to people of every religion and ethnicity. Our mission is not  limited to any one “faith group”

In fact our materials are relevant for the rehabilitation of atheists and agnostics. The Ministry facilitates a process that inspires an attitude of respect for the orderly restructoring of values that restore Tradition and the Law. We call these values “Torah.”

Our main goal is to supply Torah resources  and individualized programs for everyone behind bars. We also offer training and workshops on prison ministry. Our main focus for now is to supply inmates with books, cassettes, DVD’s and educational software.

I am now retired from the New York State Department  of Corrections and Community Supervision.After thirty years of state service i  look forward to working from the outside in.

My team will include volunteers  from all walks of life who will mentor and teach the Torah, the  “Devar” of Jonah the prophet to all. Contact information is below:
