Expectations

It is for You
Shabbat is a beautiful time of rest, worship, and fellowship. You are welcome to attend our services. People from all ethnic backgrounds are welcome to worship at Beth Shalom. 
 
                            
 
 

It’s Shabbat

Relax it is Shabbat. Come as you are. If you come from a Jewish background you will recognize many of the elements used in traditional Jewish Synagogues. If you are from a Christian background, many things will be different than what you are used to. Come anyway and learn.
 
“For Moses from ancient generations has had in every city those who proclaim him, since he is read in all the synagogues every Shabbat.” – Acts 15:21
 

Food and Fellowship

Our service lasts about 2 hours. This includes Singing and Dancing, Blessings, Prayers, Torah Readings, and Discussion. After all of this, we are hungry. So we eat together and enjoy the fellowship. We call this Oneg.

 

What do the Kids do?

Kids need a Shabbat too!
The children join the adults for the service, and are welcome to participate in the singing, dancing, and the worship. We include the children in everything we do. Families stay together and learn God’s ways together. We expect the kids to participate in the reading of the Torah. 
 
Kids are Kids, we do expect good behavior, but we are a family. We have kids too, and our kids have just as much energy as yours. Bring em, they need to hear about Yeshua, and they need to learn the ways of God!
 
You are to teach them diligently to your children, and speak of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down and when you rise up.” Deuteronomy 6:7 

Lifestyle

At Beth Shalom, we believe Yeshua is the Messiah of Adonai. We believe that Adonai’s Torah is something that we should take seriously. How to follow Yeshua and live according to God’s Torah today is what we are learning to do. 
 
Is Yeshua for Jewish people?
But He responded, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” – Matthew 15:24
See Isaiah 53
 
Is Torah for Christians?
“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.” – John 14:15
 
“Also the foreigners who join themselves to Adonai, to minister to Him, and to love the Name of Adonai,and to be His servants all who keep from profaning Shabbat, and hold fast to My covenant these I will bring to My holy mountain,and let them rejoice in My House of Prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be acceptable on My altar. For My House will be called a House of Prayer for all nations” – Isaiah 56:6-7
