Please join Rabbi Jay Howard and the entire congregation as we celebrate the Good News, the Besorah of Yeshua Messiah and the Restoration of the whole House of Israel coming together as one. One Kingdom, One Savior, One Torah, One House, One God. Rabbi Howard's teachings include embracing and living in God's Kingdom instead of a religion, applying the Torah to our lives today through the spirit of Yeshua and the character change that will set us in motion as we enter into our next season. This brings us the true joy that God intends for us to have. We reach out to all generations through teachings, praise music, dance and great fellowship. Please join us as we honor Elohim!
The Torah, God's teaching and instruction, gives us a lifestyle where we will live life redeemed for the glory of God....

Mentioned more often than any other fruit in the bible, grapes are considered a symbol of redemption and renewal in Jewish tradition and the representation of Joy - Simchat. Judges 9:13 states: "My wine which makes joyous God and men." Grapes and grapevines are mentioned more than 200 times in the Tanakh and continued to be referred to in the Brit Chadasha, the New Testament.
Nehemiah 8:10-11 'Then he said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” 11 So the Levites quieted all the people, saying, “Be still, for the day is holy; do not be grieved.” 12 And all the people went their way to eat and drink, to send portions and rejoice greatly, because they understood the words that were declared to them.'
