What are Messianic Congregations? Why establish them? What objections do they answer? What is their overall purpose? What roles do they play in the greater Community of Believers? How do they fulfill the teachings of the New Covenant? How are they distinct from other believing communities? What do they uniquely emphasize and practice?
These are a few questions which we attempt to address in our “Messianic Foundations” Shabbat school class. Together we work through Sam Nadler’s book by the same title.
If you consider Beth Sar Shalom Brooklyn to be your faith community home, this class is for you. If you want to gain a better understanding of the faith and practice of Beth Sar Shalom Brooklyn, and the Messianic Congregational Movement in general, this class is for you. If you just want to know more about the Jewish expression of faith in the Messiah Yeshua, this class is for you. This is a very important teaching in the life of our congregation and we strongly encourage all interested people to attend. This class will also serve as a requirement for membership with Beth Sar Shalom Brooklyn.
