What would cause a successful young Jewish Harvard Business School professor, the son of German Jewish Holocaust refugees, to suddenly leave that promising career to become a “fanatic” Catholic evangelist?  It would sure have to be something!

It was.  Out of nowhere, one day God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, our Lord Jesus Christ, revealed Himself to Roy while he was walking alone in nature.  In an instant, Roy saw most of the truths of the Faith – that we live forever, that our eternity is determined by what we do on Earth, that every moment of our lives matter, that every moment we are watched over, and infinitely loved, by an all-powerful, all-knowing, all-loving God.  Why should he waste his time working for treasure on Earth, which would not do him any good at all even 100 years from now, when he could be building up treasure in Heaven, from which he would still benefit 100 million years from now?

Roy feels that his mission is twofold: to wake up Catholics to the infinite gift that they have in the Catholic Church and the need to share that gift with others; and to demonstrate the continuity between Judaism and the Catholic Faith — that the Catholic Church can be seen as the continuation of Judaism after the coming of the Jewish Messiah, Jesus, and Judaism can be seen as the pre-Messianic introduction and preparation for the Catholic Church. 

Over the past ten years, after the publication of his ground-breaking book Salvation is from the Jews: the Role of Judaism in Salvation History from Abraham to the Second Coming, Roy has spoken and given retreats and missions to Catholic groups and conferences across the US, Canada, and the UK, as well as in Ireland, France, Israel, Columbia, Ecuador, Australia, and New Zealand.  His unique perspective of Catholicism as the continuation of Judaism after the coming of the Jewish Messiah, Jesus, has brought numerous fallen away Catholics back to the Faith, and opened up the meaning of the Old Testament and Judaism to thousands of Catholics for the first time. 

In addition to his public speaking, Roy has written three books (published by Ignatius Press and the Catholic Truth Society) about the Jewish/Catholic connection, has taught at Ave Maria University and Holy Apostles Seminary, (and) has appeared dozens of times on EWTN Television and Radio.
