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

Why did G-d tell us to remember Passover? What is the meaning? What did God do? Is it only about commemorating the last plague? Is it about getting out of Egypt? Many commentaries will say that Israel was asking G-d to deliver them from Egypt. On careful reading of Torah we can see that’s not at all what the Israelites were asking. We were comfortable and didn’t want to move. Did they ever ask to be moved out from that idolatrous nation and to be returned to Eretz Israel? In fact, it’s quite the opposite; they were constantly complaining and asking Moses and Aaron to take them back to Egypt. We have this same our problem today; we are not asking G-d to bring us to Him but to make us more comfortable in our lives; we forget that we need to afflict our souls, to humble and search ourselves. Passover is a festival of deliverance from idolatry and returning to the God of Israel. That is exactly what Yeshua our Messiah did. Like Moshe who delivered the people from the paganism of Egypt, Yeshua brought us back to Torah. G-d gave Israel the task of being “ohr l’goyim”אור לגיים  and it is important to know that He never removed this task from us.  In fact, on the contrary He said that if we weren’t faithful, we would suffer but He never, ever replaced Israel with another people. Israel may have been the most unfaithful people but G-d is faithful and He keeps His promises.  We may have failed but who doesn’t fail.  It is time that we see things as they are. (Read more)
