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

In Parashat Bo the Almighty will be finally showing the people of Israel that He is the only One God of the universe. They were going to learn that when they trust in the gods of this earth that make promises which cannot be kept, it will always bring disaster upon them. The consequences are not only for them but for all the nations   Read more Drash Bo

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

 It has been 70 years since the doors of the hell of Auschwitz were closed and the deliverance of the European Jews. Number 70 has been important in our history as denoting that something was ending and something new was beginning but the problem here is that we see another, more deadly anti-Semitism rearing its ugly head, not only in Europe but also around the world.  Similar to Nazi politics, Jews once again are being blamed for the maladies of the world and the idea of “Never Again” is slowly fading from our lips. We have been accused of deicide, of killing the god of the Christians. It doesn’t matter how many inventions in every area that could help humanity that have come out of Israel and through the Jewish people, it is never enough. The world has decided to condemn the only people who want to do anything good for the world. The world politicians who speak out of both sides of their mouths, on one hand say about anti-Semitism that this will never happen again while on the other hand are quietly preparing for the next genocide of the Jews. Last week the European nations voted to remove Hamas from the list of terrorist organizations replacing it with the status of any other normal organization. Right after this took place, a young Palestinian man stabbed 12 people on a bus in Tel Aviv. Hamas immediately eulogized this young man vowing to financially support him while in prison as well as for the rest of his life. Israel is now forced to support this person in their prison system instead of putting him to death. I would like to know what our new definition of a terrorist organization should be.   So what is the solution?  Read More
