Congregation Shema Yisrael is a congregation of Jews and Gentiles who believe in the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus), and who worship the God of Israel in a Jewish way. We are committed to restoring the Jewish Roots of our faith in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
Our purpose is to proclaim Messiah Yeshua to Jewish and non-Jewish people, connect them personally with the God of Israel through prayer and worship, draw them into fellowship, lead them to spiritual maturity, equip them to serve, and inspire believers everywhere to reconnect with their Jewish roots.
We are located at:
