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

Parashah: Yitro — “Jethro"

— Torah:
Exodus 18:1 – 20:23

— Haftarah: Isaiah 6:1 — 7:6, 9:5-6


The apostles taught us that the Torah is about the Messiah, thus Torah is a tutor for us to come to know Him and His righteousness. Torah's commandments are teaching us how to live a godly life, to be equipped to enter in the good works that God prepared for us from the eternity past. Thus, even though we live in an era free of the fear of the punishment for not obeying all of these commandments, it is for our benefit to heed their teaching, because they are for our correction and for our training in righteousness. By obeying Torah we show God that we are sincere in our desire to make teshuvah, to repent of our sins...
