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

Read our rabbi's Drash on Pinchas 5774 ...We humans do not have the power to restore peace to mankind.  However, each of us has the responsibility to do what we can to be like Pinchas. We do not have to take a life as he did but as his name means “the mouth of the serpent", we need to speak out loud and clear for truth and justice.

 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 37 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 could 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, 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

As we continue to watch the developments in the Middle East especially in the latest campaign, Operation Protective Edge, we have seen the manipulation of the media and the increase of sentiment against the Jewish people not only in Israel but world-wide. On the brighter side, we are seeing more and more people praying. Not only those from whom most people would expect it, like the Orthodox Jews, but we also see the am ha aretz, the regular population crying out to God for protection and salvation. We who know Torah cannot pretend that there are no consequences when the people of Israel are not united and are not following God’s principles. These situations arise when God wants to bring us back to His reality and for us to pay full attention to what He is saying to us. Recently we have read in the last parashot about the wars to conquer Eretz Israel which God was giving to us. There has been a rule that if we were disobedient to Him we would suffer an increase of enemies and we would at times be defeated in battle but if we would return to Him the direction of the battle would change. I believe that this recent war is bringing us as Jews around the world, the opportunity to lift up our voices and our prayers to God Almighty to bring us back on the right track. Israel has never been a vindictive nation. Totally the contrary, we truly love peace. Our greeting “Shalom” speaks for itself.  How can we fight a people who use lies, deceit, trickery and who make us look like the terrorists while they, the true terrorists play the role of the victim. They force their own people to suffer the consequences of their lunacy and thirst for death. Decency is a quality of people who are free to express themselves and are not dominated by madness, fanaticism or religiosity.

News from Kehilat She'ar Yashuv

Golda Meir said in 1969 at a press conference in London: When peace comes we will perhaps in time be able to forive the Arabs for killing our sons, but it will be harder for us to forgive them for having forced us to kill their sons.

We stand with Israel and weep for her pain.

We condemn the acts of terror and violence
committed every single day
against the citizens of Israel.

May our Messiah Yeshua ben David come soon
to bring in Tikkun olam.

אתה  גבר לעולם אדוי מחיה מתים אתה רב להשיע
מכלכל חיים בחסד מחיה מתים ברחמים רבים
סומך נופלים ורופא חולים
ומתיר אסורים ומקים אמונתו לישני עפר
מי כמוך בעל גבורות ומי דומה לך
מלך ממית ומחיה ומצמיח ישועה
ונאמן אתה להחיות מתים
ברוך אתה יי מחיה המתים.

You O L-RD are mighty forever. You raise the dead, You are mighty to save.
You sustain the living with grace, resurrect the dead with abundant mercy,
uphold the falling, heal the sick, set free those in bondage
and keep faith with those that sleep in the dust.
Who is like You, Master of mighty deeds and who can compare to You,
King who causes death and restores life and makes salvation sprout.
And You are faithful to resurrect the dead.
Blessed are You O L-RD who resurrects the dead.
