Excerpt from Adat Yeshua Synagogue

Messiah

"A Messiah, who encourages the Jewish people to not practice Judaism, can NOT be the Jewish Messiah. For nearly 2000 years, Jews who accepted Jesus as the Messiah, were taught to abandon Jewish observance. People have diminished the Torah and Israel's sacred calling in conjunction with Jesus.
...

Although much of the world is not yet transformed by Messiah, the lives of those who embrace Him are transformed in profound ways. To them life has expanded purpose and destiny. Jewish men, women and children, who accept Yeshua as the Messiah, within a Messianic Jewish context, experience new meaning and depth of their Jewish heritage. Yeshua set an example of living a Jewish life with humility before God, which touches and moves people today.

Messianic Judaism offers something new and something old. For those who have dropped out and found God distant, we engender personableness and sharing in lifes journey. For those who accepted Yeshua, but not in conjuction with Jewish practice, Messianic Judaism is the resusitator of their identity and lives as Jews. For those who come from a life of Jewish observance, Messianic Judaism brings the life expansion that only Messiah can offer."
