WELCOME TO THE UMJA
The UMJA is an organization composed of Messianic Jewish congregations
who have chosen to unite in order to more effectively accomplish
the mission that Adonai has set before us.
Visit our Mission and Beliefs section to learn more about our goals and values.
WHAT WE OFFER
A Path to Spiritual Unity
The challenges and obstacles of building a faith community can be overwhelming. There has never been greater hostility, division and isolation among believers than there is right now. We need to pull together and take advantage of the fellowship of other like-minded, Torah-observing believers. We don't have to stand alone! See if you can join us for our annual conference for a chance to get to know one another. May HaShem weave us together like the strands of the challah bread that we might serve Him together, a sweet aroma to Elohim.
We have online courses, a monthly newsletter, a quarterly magazine, annual conferences, our own Yeshiva kicking off this spring, and a new publishing house.
Affiliated Rabbis and Charters can take advantage of the resource area of our website. Learn more about s'michah (ordination) to become a Messianic Jewish Ro'eh (Pastor), Moreh/Morah, Mashia, or Rabbi. Go to Events and Programs and Resources tabs to learn more and to apply.
PLURALITY OF COUNSEL
As described in Exodus 18:13-23, Moses was counseled by his father-in-law to multiply his efforts by banding together with other capable leaders. Sharing the load is wise, and godly counsel and leadership is available in the Beit Din. The combined wisdom and a plurality of voices is a valuable benefit to navigate these challenging times.
UNITY ~ "ACHDUT"
A song of ascents. By David:
1 Oh, how good, how pleasant it is for brothers to live together in harmony.
2 It is like fragrant oil on the head that runs down over the beard, over the beard of Aharon,
and flows down on the collar of his robes.
3 It is like the dew of Hermon that settles on the mountains of Tziyon.
For it was there that Adonai ordained the blessing of everlasting life.
