The R2a haplogroups have only small percentages of ancestors outside the Middle East. It is probably that out of the reported branches here we have a branch AB-083 that is far from the other R2a Jewish branches. It is likely that the AB-085 descends from a middle eastern branch that has descending branches AB-085, AB-214, AB-215, AB-216 and AB-265. It is also likely that the person reported on Yfull as YF04576 from Kuwait descends from the shared ancestor. At the moment the STR and public SNP information is insufficient to determine whether and when the ancestor changed relation. It is also not clear yet whether it was a change from the Jewish religion to the Islam religion or the other way around.
