Sisterhood - Welcome

 

Sisterhood
Dear Sister:

As a part of the Body of Messiah Yeshua, we welcome you and are delighted that you are visiting our web page.

We would like to take this opportunity to tell you about our Sisterhood, which is comprised of Jewish and non-Jewish women of all ages, beginning at age 12, who attend Ben David Messianic Jewish Congregation. As you will see, our diversity extends across a variety of ethnic, cultural and racial groups, reflecting our unity in Messiah Yeshua and our commitment to serve God and each other in love, as instructed in the Tanakh and in the Brit Chadashah.

"YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART,
AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH,
AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND; AND YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF."
(Luke 10:27)

We are committed to the study of God’s Word and endeavor to apply it in practical ways to our daily lives. Consequently, we meet on the third Shabbat of the month and share in the laughter, love and support afforded through healthy, meaningful and enduring friendships with each other. Our goal, which reflects the three ministry areas of our sisterhood, is to provide a safe place, where women gather together to build Haverut (relationship), receive sound Biblical and practical Limud (instruction) and obtain and experience the privilege of participation in Avodah (service) for our sisters, families, congregation and our greater community.
In addition, we enjoy two main events annually. They are our Spring Tea and our Fall Luncheon. During these times we may have special speakers or musical guests that minister to our women.

We invite you to come and experience the love that we hold for God and for each other. Come now: Let us grow together in the Word and in the Chesed (mercy, loving kindness) of God.

In His Service Together;

Your Sisterhood Leadership Team

This week's Parashah speaks about obedience to God. Regardless how well intentioned are our actions, or our deeds, in serving God, they pale in comparison with obedience to Him. God, first and foremost, wants us to listen to Him and to do what He asks us to do. All our good intentions are just dirty rags – “all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment” says the prophet Yeshayahu 64:6. “The road to perdition is paved with good intentions,” goes the saying...
