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 from every nation, that we might serve Him together, as a sweet aroma to Elohim.
We have online courses, a monthly newsletter, a quarterly magazine, annual conferences, our new Yeshiva, a new publishing house, and more on the way!
Affiliated Rabbis and Charters can take advantage of the resource area of our website. Learn more about membership,
our educational offerings, and applying for s'michah (ordination). Check out the Members page, Educational Resources, and Events and Programs to learn more.
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. We have also begun hosting regular "Ask the Rabbis" open forum calls on Zoom for all our Associates and Members. Join us!
UNITY ~ "ACHDUT"
A song of ascents. By David:
Oh, how good, how pleasant it is for brothers to live together in harmony.
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.
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.
Complete Jewish Bible
How does the Word describe the unity and oneness among believers? This is what sets us apart, like the anointing oil on the holy servant of Adonai. Unity marks us like the oil of consecration that separated the high priest from all the people of Israel. It sparkles on your face. It permeates the clothing and perfumes the air around us with sweet fragrance wherever we go. It is noticeable and it touches people. It is sweet and gentle, but so grand it improves the entire landscape of the nation! It's origins are heavenly, like a mantle of glistening dew that falls from heaven and covers the mountains of the Lord with breathtaking majesty. Our unity and oneness is our greatest grace and beauty. It is the symbol of blessing God ordained for us to wear, just as a bride adorns herself with a wedding dress and covers herself with a veil. When we love one another and live in unity together, we are in the very center of God's will, proving that we belong to the Father, we speak the language of his heart, and we are adorned with eternal life. This is why Yeshua said, "BY THIS shall all men know that you have eternal life, if you love one another."
