Welcome to Kehilat She'ar Yashuv
  Kehilat She'ar Yashuv קהילת שאר ישוב is a Jewish Congregation based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada where Jews and Gentiles are welcome to learn how to do teshuva (turn to the God of Israel). In other words, we are a house of prayer for all nations. We are part of the She'ar Yashuv Community Centre serving the greater community of Montreal. Our Shabbat services are held every Saturday at 10:30 AM.  We are Shomer Shabbat based upon Torah alone.  Our Rabbi teaches us how to apply the prinicples of Torah for today with the example laid down for us by our Messiah Yeshua.

Meet our Rabbi

Modern Judaism says that Jesus was rejected by the Jews and Christianity is happy to agree with them believing that the blessings are for them and the curses are for Israel. Both are far from the truth. Yeshua entered Jerusalem on Shabbat HaGadol. The people all received him and acknowledged that he was the Mashiach but they were disappointed that he was not ben David who would deliver them from their Roman oppressors. Yeshua's role at that time was to be Mashiach ben Joseph with a function very similar to our patriarch Joseph.  Read more in Drash Tzav and  (listen to the full message on Youtube)

Rabbi Netanel Ben Yochanan - Ranebi רנב''י  (Rabbi Percy Johnson) is the spiritual leader of this community  He came to the understanding early in his life that Yeshua is indeed the Jewish Messiah not only for Jews but for the entire world. The Rabbi teaches principles from Torah in a non-religious way so that we, his talmidim can apply its wisdom to our daily lives while having a sincere relationship with G-d.  His slogan is "no to religion, yes to G-d!" The concept for the Jewish Community Centers for believers in Yeshua came to him over the 38 years ago when he began to develop them around the world. These are places where Torah -observant Jews and non-Jews who believe that Yeshua is Messiah ben Joseph can feel welcome.  Rabbi Netanel is dedicated to mentoring and building up young leaders for the future. He also has many years of experience as a chaplain in both the army and prison system; he is an effective mediator and expert in crisis management as well as being a skilful counsellor in pre-marital, marriage, personal and family matters. He is especially skilled in marriage counseling and has helped many marriages which were failing. His desire is to prevent people from making one of the worst mistake of their lives — marrying the wrong person. (See Rabbi's Services)  

From the Rabbi's Desk

As we prepare for Pesach this coming Friday night, Erev Shabbat I would like to leave you with a couple of thoughts for this season. First of all, on behalf of our community in Montreal and our extended family around the globe, I want to wish you all a very happy Pesach and hope that wherever you are gathering to celebrate it with your family and friends that this will be a true thanksgiving for all that He has done for us.  As I write it tonight on the evening of the 10th of Nisan I think about that first pesach lamb that would have been taken in each household so many thousands of years ago. According to Torah, of the five special offerings to God specified in last week’s parashah, this lamb would have been considered a Zevach-Shelamim or thanksgiving peace offering.

Our Creator was preparing Kehal Israel, to understand that there are no other gods but Him; it was a teaching experience for Israel, and at the same time was a response to mighty the Egypt that their gods were not real! Nowhere was it even hinted that this lamb was to be a sacrifice to atone for the sin of the people inside their homes that night.

Pesach was and still is a time of thanksgiving and rejoicing about the fact that our slavery had come to an end and that we were now free to serve our God. So why did God have to use an agent of death, to bring about a celebration of life? The reason is very simple and pure, and is a constant, found throughout our Torah. God’s "protection" was afforded only to those who listened (in Hebrew, the same as saying to obey) to His voice, through Moshe. This is why Moshe urges the people of Israel to choose life, instead of death, and cling to His Torah.
