“That is an eye-opener,” she said. “If you’ve never been to the land of Israel, you have to go at least once in your life. It makes your Bible mean more to you and come alive to you.”
One of Cheryl Hill-Guy’s favorite activities is updating her Web site, http://MessianicCommunity.com, where she talks about the Messianic Community. Messianic Judaism differs from Judaism in that it adheres to the fact that Jesus, or Yeshua, is the Messiah.
She also enjoys history — whether it’s about survivors of the holocaust during World War II, to just learning about the history in her local community.
“I love history. That’s why I watch the History Channel, … about holocaust victims who are still alive, and history of the land where I live,” she said.

Interesting facts: Went to Israel in 1999 with Global Baseball as a photographer. Was able to put a stone on Oskar Schindler’s grave and visited many sites that the usual tourists would not be able to, thanks to our wonderful guides.
Currently doing online ministry with my Web site (http://MessianicCommunity.com) where I teach the Jewish roots of the Christian faith. I also send out weekly Torah Portions and news from Israel. I have personal contacts in Israel that keep me up-to-date on what is really happening there.
I like to attend the special events at Piedmont Skills in Greenville. I was a volunteer there for years when they had the kitchen where meals were prepared and served.
