Born to a Jewish family in Boston, Baruch immigrated to Israel, where he was converted to Christ while serving in the Army. He worked with Christian Witness to Israel (1974–2005) and pastored Grace & Truth Christian Congregation in Israel from its founding in 1976 until his retirement in 2008. He is presently engaged in a writing, teaching and preaching ministry in Israel and abroad. He and his wife, Bracha, were married in 1968 and live in Gedera, Israel.
In the course of his labors he translated, among other works, The God Who Is There, Knowing God, Genesis Three. He has edited over 50 books in Hebrew. Baruch was also a member of the Editorial team for the translation of the NT into Hebrew and a contributor and member of the editorial team for the Annotated Hebrew NT.
He has written 61 theological papers, delivered in Germany, Britain, Finland, the Netherlands, Singapore, Taiwan and the USA.
He continues to edit the translation of the Bible into Modern Hebrew. Work on the OT is now drawing to a close and work on the New is soon to commence. He has translated the Westminster Confession into Hebrew and is presently engaged in various other writing and teaching projects. Recently, he completed a major work on hermeneutics.
His goal is to leave behind him as broad as possible a collection of theological, exegetical and expositional literature, written in Hebrew for Hebrew readers.
