Rabbi Michael Beyo shares his story.
Michael Beyo grew up as an Orthodox Jew in Italy. Michael went on to become a rabbi and lived in Israel for 25 years. When he and his wife moved to the US, he experienced financial hardships that made even buying groceries difficult. It was during this period of hard times that Michael met a man from a different faith.
