What is Messianic Judaism?
Since Messianic Jews are practicing Jews, they refer to their way of life as Messianic Judaism. Simply put, Messianic Judaism is that branch of Judaism which claims that Yeshua is the Messiah of Israel and that Judaism is best expressed in and through him.
Why Messianic Synagogues?
A synagogue is above all a sacred community of Jewish people who gather for worship, prayer, study, benevolence, lifecycle events and other Jewish community activities. What distinguishes Messianic synagogues from mainstream synagogues is the centrality of Yeshua, the prominent place of the New Testament, and the presence of Gentile followers of Yeshua who come alongside Messianic Jews to build a congregation for Yeshua within the house of Israel. There are presently over 500 Messianic synagogues in Israel and the Diaspora.
