Conversion to Christianity
Penina was born into a secular Jewish home in Lakewood Township, New Jersey.[3] After a traumatic childhood, Penina embraced Christianity in high school, and then went on to Miami Christian College (Now Trinity University) where she obtained a Bible Certificate. In college Penina became certified in the Evangelism Explosion (EE) program, was trained and served as a counselor with the Billy Graham Crusade several times and was certified as a crisis pregnancy counselor.

Shortly after leaving Miami Christian College, Penina married Paul Taylor, who had attended Moody Bible Institute and the two of them continued to serve in lay leadership positions in a variety of churches.

Messianic Judaism
In 1991, Paul and Penina became involved in the Messianic movement and in 1994 Paul and Penina, along with Penina’s parents, started the Messianic congregation, Knesset Hashuvim in Bowie, Maryland. During this time, Penina began reading books about Orthodox Judaism and the four leaders adopted the concept of “Torah Observant Messianic Judaism.” Penina’s father, Yeshayahu Heiliczer, established the “Association of Torah Observant Messianics” or ATOM.

From Messianic Judaism to Orthodox Judaism
After moving to Baltimore, Maryland in 2000 – while still Messianic Jews, Paul and Penina began to attend an Orthodox synagogue where they were introduced by the rabbi to the (then) director of Jews for Judaism, Mark Powers. As a result of their discussion with Mark, Penina rejected all forms of Christianity, including Messianic Judaism, and adopted Orthodox Judaism.
