Jewish law requires men to cover their heads as a sign of respect and reverence for G‑d when praying, studying Torah, saying a blessing or entering a synagogue.

The tradition to wear a kippah is not derived from any biblical passage. Rather, it is a custom which evolved as a sign of our recognition that there is Someone “above” us who watches our every act. A kippah is constant reminder that there is an Eye that watches all we do.

Yes. We strive to provide a Messianic Jewish Community for Jews and non-Jews, devoted to the One True God of Israel, and faith in the promised Redeemer of Israel.

Messianic Judaism is a movement of Jewish people who believe that Jesus (Yeshua in Hebrew) is the promised Jewish Messiah and Savior to Israel and the whole world.
Interestingly enough, after Yeshua’s commission to His disciples—His Jewish disciples—to go into the world and preach His Good News (Gospel), most all believers in Jesus were Jews. In fact, at that time some Jewish believers thought Gentiles (non-Jews) should convert to Judaism. As these Jewish disciples brought more and more Gentiles to faith in Jesus, some didn’t understand the Jewish roots of their faith and God’s eternal covenant with Israel. A “de-Judaizing” of the Bible and faith in Jesus eventually separated Jews from the new faith. This faith became the second wing, Christianity.

Most important are the similarities: Christianity is also faith in the Jewish Messiah Yeshua. Typically, people who call themselves Christians are non-Jewish. As mentioned above, the first believers in Jesus were Jewish. Yeshua wanted us to be one in Him—Jew and Gentile, one in Messiah.

The most distinct difference between Messianic Judaism and Christianity is our expression of faith. Messianic Judaism is a return to the Jewish roots of the faith. This takes the form of observance of Biblical feasts and holidays, and other traditions not in conflict with Scriptures.

Yeshua is His Hebrew name! Jesus is the Hellenized-anglicized form of Yeshua, which means Salvation (Matthew 1:21; Luke 2:30). By the way, when His mother called Him in for dinner, she called, "Yeshua!"
The title in Hebrew is Mashiach or Anointed One. The English translation is Messiah. In the Greek, Anointed One is Christos, which was later anglicized to Christ. Which is why Messianic Jews use Messiah—it’s part of our language.
