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.
Chanukkah and Anti Semitism
What is the history of Israel after the Maccabees re-dedicated the Temple on Chanukkah? How was the post-Chanukkah history important to the coming of Messiah Yeshua? Why have the Jewish people been so greatly persecuted over the past 2000 years? Rabbi Jim answers these questions and more in this teaching given on December 28, 2019, the 30th of Kislev, 5780.
