"From being a nightclub DJ, intermarrying & becoming a Jew for Jesus, to discovering the truth of Torah, becoming Shomer Shabbos and mitzvos and finally finding himself happily enjoying a life infused with Yiddishkeit and yet still able to keep people dancing with his music, Jeff Neckonoff will dazzle you with his very riveting & intriguing story.
Jeff's charismatic personality will make you laugh, cry and definitely raise a few eyebrows as he describes his very strange journey that Hashem had him undertake before he made teshuvah."
"Jeff Neckonoff is a true "Renaissance Man." In the spirit of the Biblical Jethro, he checked out religious landscape of the "other teams," and with a deep soul-searching quest for truth, has discovered his Torah-true roots, and positively influenced "Bnai Beiso," members of his household, to follow in his footsteps. Jeff brings a unique perspective and energy that will fascinate and inspire those who in the immortal words of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Z'L, "are already there, and those who are not yet there." In that spirit, the story of Jeff's journey, resonating with so many of his former co-coreligionists, thirsting to reconnect with their own roots.

"Jeff's desire for growth in Judaism was borne out through his son, Daniel, a 5th grade student of mine at the Hebrew Academy of Nassau County. Daniel shared with the class on many occasions how proud he was of being Jewish. When Jeff and his family were in the process of moving from Merrick to the Five Towns, Daniel exclaimed, "Now it will be easier for me to walk the streets wearing a kippah and to practice Judaism."
- Rabbi Moshe Cheplowitz, Head of School at the Hebrew Academy of Palm Beach, FL
