Beth Emanuel Synagogue is a Messianic Jewish Congregation
By Messianic we mean that we are Jews and non-Jews who have accepted Yeshua (Jesus) as Messiah and Savior of Israel and the nations. We believe He sacrificed Himself to atone for our sins.
By Jewish we mean that we strive to live a Jewish lifestyle in our homes and congregation based first and foremost on biblical instruction and secondly on the traditions of our ancestors. We have not abandoned our Jewish identity or cultural expression because of our faith in Messiah Yeshua.
By Congregation we mean that we are a body of people from many different ethnic, social and religious backgrounds who have been brought together by our faith in the God of Abraham and are committed to one another. It is our desire to be a spiritual, emotional and social support to one another. We recognize that as a Jewish congregation we are a unique expression of the larger congregation of believers in the Messiah.
