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

When the Almighty first formed Israel as a nation, we were chosen to be a people who were separated from the pagan nations. The Israelites were told that we would be a priesthood and a treasured people. After our sin with the golden calf, this priesthood was reduced to one family and the offerings were limited to one location. The word "cohen" or priest does not have the same meaning today as it was understood then.  Find out more about this special position and how we can apply it to our lives today in Drash Shemini.   (Listen to the full message from our Rabbi 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

Yom Hazikaron/Yom Ha Atzmaut April 22, 2015

Last night some of us attended a Yom Hazikaron ( ceremony at the Jewish Community Center in the building which houses the Holocaust Museum here in Montreal. There were many young people there and although there were Jews from all cultures and nationalities, we stood as one people to remember the more than 26,000 people, including soldiers, police, and rescue workers who had fallen since the founding of the new state of Israel. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke today about remembering the day his older brother fell in battle. He was studying in Boston at the time and he still remembers the wailing of his parents since he was the one who had to bring them to terrible news.

There was an animation presentation showing a mother who lost her son, a pilot in the IDF when his plane was shot down over the water.  It showed her flying to that place and diving into the water and seeing him at the bottom as a little boy playing with his toy airplanes. It was heart-wrenching to watch.  A Cantor from our largest synagogue in Montreal sang אל מלא רחמים “El Molei Rachamim” and his voice seemed to soar down to us from the heavens. Here is another cantor singing that beautiful prayer:

Today a two minute blast of the siren sounded in Israel as everyone stopped whatever they were doing for a moment of silence. Let us also stop for a moment of silence to remember those who have given their lives so that we can live in relative peace and safety.  Our sages say that there is atonement in the death of the righteous innocent.
