Minyan Community

The reason that this is called the Minyan Community is because the groups on this page are in close proximity of each other. Therefore, members of each congregation can be called to form a Minyan when needed. To be listed on this page requires that you form a local community of at least 3 congregations in your area. These 3 congregations must be within 2 hrs driving distance. After you have 3 congregations agreeing to support each other when a Minyan is required email us @ We will gladly add your congregation to our Minyan Community page.


Messianic Community

Ruach V'Emet Messianic Jewish Synagogue.

Ruach V'Emet is the messianic synagogue with a historical research center. Ruach V'Emet is the foundation and support for the ABOUT-Torah online yeshiva.

Ruach V'Emet has two primary functions:

  1. The first is to bring messianic Jews and non-Jews together for the weekly Shabbat, with the purpose of implementing the practices started by the first century messianic movement.
  2. The second is to understand and teach individuals about the first century messianic Jewish and non-Jewish movements through researching biblical, traditional and historical texts.

The combination of biblical, traditional and historical sources, united with the desire to implement the practices started by the first century messianic movement make the Ruach V'Emet worship experience unique.

Ruach V'Emet Teachings

Discovery of the truth of Torah only occurs when we ask ourselves the tough questions. For example when did Sunday replace the 7th day Sabbath, or was a Torah Observant belief system replaced by a non-Torah Observant belief system. Blindly following a belief system without first asking these questions, can lead us to surrender our will to individuals proclaiming false doctrines. In other words, blindly following someone else can lead to acceptance of a lie.

This section is for those few individuals who begin asking the tough questions. The teachings in this section are specifically designed to give individuals a starting point. Therefore, these teachings are designed to lightly introduce an individual to the topic of Torah Observance and the Messiah. The scriptural concepts addressed here, will hopefully bring the reader to a point where he or she can embrace the Torah and the Messiah, so that he or she may learn the patience of the Saints as Revelation 14:12 states "Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Yeshua."

Shabbat - The Sabbath

One of the first questions that I'm often asked is when did Sunday replace the 7th day Sabbath. When I answer the question people are often amazed that the answer does not match what they have been taught. The person is totally shocked to discover that there is no commandment in the scriptures that mandates replacing the seventh day Sabbath with Sunday. In fact, the two scriptures that most people use to prove the case for Sunday are Matthew 28:1 and Acts 20:7. more...

Yom Teruah - Rosh Hashanah

To observe the beginning of a new month, the Yisraelites would celebrate the new moon. However, although the new moon was set aside to mark the beginning of a new month most new moons were not considered Holy. The Torah only sanctifies one new moon as Holy. This Holy new moon occurs on the first day of the seventh month as Vayikra 23:23-25 states more...

Sukkot - The Feast Of Tabernacles

Prophetically speaking, Sukkot is more significant than then the other feasts. In the future, it will be mandatory for all the nations that war against Yerushalayim to go to Yerushalayim during the festival of Sukkot to worship the King. more...

The Torah Standard of the The Sighted New Moon - The Biblical Calendar

Rosh Hodesh (literally: head of the month) is important as the observable guide to the changing of the months and the seasons. The first month of each biblical year falls on the first New Moon after green Barley (aviv) has been found this usually occurs around the time of the vernal equinox. All of the biblical feasts are dated from this date. more...

The Importance of Sighting the Aviv - The Biblical Year

Keeping the feast of Passover marks the first appointed time in the Torah observant believer's year. The Torah states very plainly in Deut. 16:1 when Passover is to be kept: "observe the month of Abib, and keep the Passover unto the LORD thy God: for in the month of Abib the LORD thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night[i]". According to this passage we must keep the feast of Passover in the month of Abib. To determine the exact date of this crucial month we must first come to an understanding what Abib is, and what is required. more...

“Adar 2 and the Importance of Aviv” - Adding A Month To The Year

To clarify the issue of adding Adar 2, it is crucial to note that the first new moon after the aviv is sighted is declared as the new moon of aviv. Therefore, even when aviv is found before the vernal equinox the month of aviv most likely starts on the new moon after the vernal equinox. This is because when aviv is found before the vernal equinox aviv has only been found a few days before the vernal equinox. Therefore, 99% of the time the first new moon after the vernal equinox is the new moon that starts the New Year. As a result, it makes it appear that the new moon that starts the first month of the biblical year is determined by the vernal equinox. more...

B'Nai Israel Messianic Assembly

B'Nai Israel's Goal

  1. Obedience to the command to assemble ourselves together to worship, B’Nai Israel Messianic Assembly seeks to provide a venue for Jewish and non-Jewish believers in Messiah Yeshua to worship in a biblical pattern.
  2. We provide a place of Torah teaching, fellowship, encouragement and support for all Believer seeking to “Come out of Babylon”.
  3. We acknowledge that Jews and non-Jews who return to the Ancient Paths of the Torah often creates rejection by family and friends who do not understand. Therefore, B'Nai Israel offers refuge and support as an extended family.

  5. We believe in unity with all people who respond to the call upon their lives. This includes all the remnant.
  6. We understand God's people are required to separate ourselves from the things of this world and offer ourselves as living sacrifices to Yahweh alone.

B'Nai Israel's Desire
