about our rabbi

Rabbi David is the son of Rabbi Eric and Pam Tokajer, of Brit Ahm Messianic Synagogue in Pensacola, FL. He accepted Yeshua as his Messiah at a young age and has walked in relationship with Him his whole life, and has felt a deep calling for ministry since most of his life.


In 2001, Rabbi David married Danielle, daughter of Rabbi Paul and Sally Collins of Congregation Beit Israel in Bayou La Batre, AL. In 2004, the they moved to Nyack, NY to attend Nyack College, where Rabbi David studied in the Messianic Jewish Studies program and served as rabbinic intern at Shuvah Yisrael Messianic Synagogue in Long Island. In 2009 they moved to Thomasville, GA where he served as associate rabbi at Beit Shalom Messianic Synagogue.


Rabbi David has served in rabbinic roles in congregations in Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, New York and Georgia. He has helped plant synagogues across the Gulf Coast as well as in Manhattan, and in 2011 G-D called them to rely on Him and the experience He has provided them to plant Congregation Mayim Chayim in Daphne. 


They are both always amazed and excited at the miraculous Hand of AD-NAI. Everything they have experienced, all the congregations they have worked in and been a part of, and all of the rabbis they have worked under culminate into what is Congregation Mayim Chayim, as well as their leadership style. They are always open and available whether you are in need of prayer, council or just need to talk. They are ever growing in their love for each other and for the G-D of their fathers, their passion and desire to see the Jewish world cry out Baruch Haba B'Shem AD-NAI (Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the   L-rd) and to see future generations rise up to serve the Living G-D of Creation is an ever burning flame that keeps them energized in the work of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) in their lives.
