The
Jewish People

God chose Israel, the Jewish people, and entered into an everlasting covenant with them so they might be the firstfruits of a renewed humanity, who would mediate blessing and restoration to all the nations of the world.

God & Creation

There is one God, who has revealed Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Every divine action in the world is accomplished by the Father working through the Son and in the power of the Spirit. God is the Creator of the heavens and the earth. He created humanity in the divine image to serve as creation’s priest and ruler. Through the exercise of free will, human beings disobeyed God, tarnished the divine image, and abandoned their privileged vocation.

Holy
Texts

The writings of Tanakh and Brit Hadasha are divinely inspired and fully trustworthy (true), a gift given by God to His people, provided to impart life and to form, nurture, and guide them in the ways of truth. The Jewish tradition serves as the living link that connects us as contemporary Jews to our biblical past. Furthermore, the Christian theological tradition offers riches of insight into the revelation of the Messiah and His will, and Messianic Jews need to draw upon this wealth.

Yeshua the
Messiah of Israel

In the fullness of time, the Divine Son became a human being—Yeshua the Messiah, born of a Jewish virgin, a true and perfect Israelite, a fitting representative and one-man embodiment of the entire nation. Yeshua died as an atonement for the sins of Israel and of the entire world. He was raised bodily from the dead, as the firstfruits of the resurrection promised to Israel as its glorification. He ascended to heaven and was there enthroned at God’s right hand as Israel’s Messiah, with authority extending to the ends of creation. Messiah Yeshua will return to Jerusalem in glory at the end of this age, to rule forever on the throne of King David. And those who put their trust in Yeshua will live forever with God in the world to come.

Messiah’s Community

God poured out the Divine Spirit on the community of Yeshua’s followers, so that they might be joined intimately to the Messiah as His Body and become the preliminary representation of the New Covenant fullness promised to Israel. To this early Jewish community God added partners from among the nations, who heard the news of God’s work in Yeshua and responded to the good news with faith. Together, we are now joint heirs of those promises. Messiah’s community is a single community expressed in diverse forms within the Jewish community and among the nations. All are called to a dedicated life of worship, neighborly service, and public testimony to Yeshua. Spiritual life is grounded in godly family units within the relational framework of congregations, whereby persons are to be encouraged, trained, and disciplined.

Messianic
Jewish Life

The Torah is God’s gift to Israel. It serves as the constitution of the Jewish people and thus also of the Messianic Jewish community, which comprises Israel’s eschatological firstfruits. The Torah does not have the same role for Messianic communities from the nations, though it does provide spiritual nourishment as a witness to the Messiah. Forgiveness of sins, spiritual renewal, union with Messiah, the empowering and sanctifying presence of the indwelling Ruach Ha Kodesh, and the confident hope of eternal life and a glorious resurrection are now available to all, Jews and Gentiles, who put their faith in Yeshua, the Risen Lord, and in obedience to His word are joined to Him and His Body through immersion and sustained in that union through Messiah’s remembrance meal. Messiah Yeshua will return to Jerusalem in glory at the end of this age, to rule forever on David’s throne. He will effect the restoration of Israel in fullness, raise the dead, save all who belong to Him, judge the wicked not written in the Book of Life who are separated from His presence, and accomplish the final Tikkun Olam in which Israel and the nations will be united under Messiah’s rule forever.

Do you have to have a Jewish background to attend?

No. Those of us with a Jewish parent or grandparent have an amazing heritage to celebrate and share.  You will see Christians, Jews, those with a Jewish parent or grandparent, interfaith couples, spiritual seekers, and those who love Israel within our community.  God’s idea of Shabbat is for all people!

How are you handling COVID 19 precautions at your events?

We follow Santa Monica safety regulations at all of our events. We currently gather outdoors in a courtyard with ample spacing between tables. We disinfect all surfaces and have pre-packaged food. With a rise in covid cases, specifically the delta variant, we have at least one table set aside at about 8 feet spacing for those who are cautious for themselves or their family members. We also offer masks and sanitizer at the table.
