STATEMENT OF FAITH

There is one God. He has many names in Judaism. Each name that God has given us in the Hebrew Bible describes an aspect of his nature without voiding any part of who he is. He uses his names to help us relate and to better understand of who he is and what he does. As it is stated, “Sh’ma, Yisra’el! ADONAI Eloheinu, ADONAI echad [Hear, Isra’el! ADONAI our God, ADONAI is one]" Deuteronomy 6:4 CJB


 As for our redeemer, the LORD of hosts is his name, the Holy One of Israel. Isaiah 47:4 KJV

Mission

To connect people to the ancient teachings of Torah. 

Vision

To inspire the world to trust in Yeshua and to express that trust through good deeds and a Torah centered life.

How We Live

We live by a few words, "Love your neighbor as yourself."

Come and See

 Philip found Natan’el and told him, “We’ve found the one that Moshe wrote about in the Torah, also the Prophets — it’s Yeshua Ben-Yosef from Natzeret!”


Natan’el answered him, “Natzeret? Can anything good come from there?”


“Come and see,” Philip said to him. 

John 1:45-46 CJB

the bible is one teaching

Moses gave a warning

 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Ye shall walk after the LORD your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him. Deuteronomy 13:1-4 KJV

Jesus agreed with Moses

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.  Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:17-20 KJV

Paul agreed with Moses

But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets: Acts 24:14 KJV

Calendar

Chanukah (Dedication)

Chanukah/Hanukkah is a Jewish winter celebration, "And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter." John 10:22 KJV. Chanukah is the Feast of Dedication. It is a 8 day celebration also known as the Feast of Lights. In 2 BCE a small group of devout Jews took on one of the most powerful forces of the time, the Syrian-Greek military. The Greeks were forcing the Israeli people to embrace pagan thoughts and ways. With the help of God a few faithful Jewish people fought to maintain the way of life God instructed Moses and won. It was a difficult fight and finally the Temple was purged and dedicated back to the God of Heaven and Earth.
God gave Israel the victory.
Now Chanukah is a yearly celebration to remember the rededication of the Holy Temple in 2 BCE. It is called the Feast of Lights because of a letter addition to the events that God allowed a one day supply of oil to last 8 days. However, this event is not found in the Book of Maccabee's. The miracle is that a hand full of people defeated the Syrian army.

And the evening and the morning were the third day.
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years Genisis 1:13-14 KJV

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts. Leviticus 23:1-3 KJV

Thus saith the Lord, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed. Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil. Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the Lord, speak, saying, The Lord hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree. For thus saith the Lord unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant; Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off. Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the Lord, to serve him, and to love the name of the Lord, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant; Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. Isaiah 56:1-7 KJV
