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

The rabbi, teacher and spiritual leader of our community, She'ar Yashuv is Rabbi Netanel Ben Yochanan (Rabbi Percy Johnson). His life was transformed when he had a personal encounter with the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and he came to the understanding 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.  We welcome you to visit our community on Shabbat especially if you have become disenchanted with religion.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 37 years ago when he began to develop them around the world. These are places where Torah observant Jews and non-Jews could feel welcome. Our center here in Montreal is house of prayer for all nations. Rabbi Netanel is dedicated to mentoring and building up young leaders for the future. He also has many years of experience as a chaplain, handles cases of mediation, crisis management and is a skilful counsellor in pre-marital, marriage, personal and family matters. He has helped in many marriages which were failing and has tried 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

We are in the intermediary days of Pesach. This special Shabbat is called the Third day of Chol HaMoed Pesach, and we read Shemot (Exodus) 34:1-26.  I am all dressed in white as part of my tradition representing that during these days we are trying to keep ourselves clean.  The traditions of our festivals are beautiful only when they are in line with Torah. What is Pesach?  It is usually seen as being the first of the 6 festivals or Appointed Times that we see given to us by G-d in Leviticus 23 (apart from Shabbat).  These would be kept according to G-d’s instructions without giving us much room.   Pesach is the initiatory formation of the people of Israel, for them to once again acquire the G-d who created them. It is also important to understand Pesach in light of Messiah Yeshua. Religions argue with each other about who Messiah is in order to justify their own doctrines. Allow yourself to see Messiah according to what Torah says, not what people who tell you about him. In the Middle Ages, if you didn’t believe the earth was flat, you were killed for being a heretic. Humanity has always been forced to accept the beliefs of the higher powers of the institutional religions. I as your rabbi am not here to tell you what you can do or what you cannot do at the holiday time.  Read Torah and try to follow them as best as you can.  Let us stay away from being so religious that it stops us from having a relationship with G-d.

News from Kehilat She'ar Yashuv

Daily Counting of the Omer

Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu melech ha-olam asher kid'shanu
b'mitzvotav v'tzivanu al s'firat ha-omer.

בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ מֶלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם אֲשֶׁר קִדְּשָׁנוּ בְּמִצְווֹתָיו  וְצִוָּנוַּ עַל
סְפִירַת הָעוֹמֶר
"Blessed be You O L-RD our God King of the universe, who has made us holy through His
commandments and commanded us about counting the Omer."


“When you take this people out of Egypt,” said G‑d to Moses when He revealed Himself to him in a burning bush at the foot of Mount Sinai, “you shall serve G‑d on this mountain.”

It took seven weeks to reach the mountain. The people of Israel departed Egypt on the 15th of Nissan (the first day of Passover); on the 6th of Sivan, celebrated ever since as the festival of Shavuot, they assembled at the foot of Mount Sinai and received the Torah from G‑d.

 Beginning on the second night of Passover, we count the days and weeks: “Today is one day to the Omer”; “Today is two days to the Omer”; “Today is seven days, which are one week to the Omer”; and so on, till “Today is forty-nine days, which are seven weeks to the Omer.”
