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

Every day we read about new atrocities taking place in the world, with war and rumors of wars, earthquakes, new diseases, volcanoes. The world is in convulsion and yet most still do not see the Hand of God warning us. Yeshua told us that these would be the signs that our disobedience is producing this.

Shabbat Iyyar 27th was the 42nd day of the counting up the Omer before we celebrate the Festival of...



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 "say no to religion, say 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 healthy future of Kahal Israel. 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.

Rabbi Netanel 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 — and that is marrying the wrong person.

From the Rabbi's Desk

The Jewish people literally arose from the ashes of the Holocaust and in 1948 Israel become a state. We had new hope and after so many centuries of oppression, we would finally be back in our own land where we could live within the values of the Torah that our Creator gave to us. Today Israel is considered one of the great powers of the world with greatest asset being her people. She has become very prosperous still holding to values that surpass those of any other nation so when I hear the United Nations citing Israel for human rights violations, I become outraged. The countries which are accusing Israel — Russia, North Korea, Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Venezuela have the chutzpah to say that Israel violates human rights and the sad thing is that 90% of the world believes these lies.  When China commits violations against their people, yet no one can say anything since they hold the veto power; the peoples of Europe remain silent about Russia’s treatment of Ukraine since they depend upon their gas and oil. Africa is reeling from the destruction within; do we hear one word from anyone? Yet the world is quick to accuse Israel and we might ask — what has Israel done to deserve such backlash from the world nations?

 The answer lies in Torah which tells us that Israel doesn’t need to do anything wrong to others but our Creator will cause our enemies to rise up against us due to the decline of our own morality. Within the people of Israel we will see the extremes of ultra Orthodox to the ultra secular who believe in nothing most of whom have been disobedient to our Creator yet there has always been the “she’ar yashuv”  שאר ישוב- the remnant who shall return to the Mighty God.

 Yeshua warned us in Matthew 24: 3-8 as a teacher, a rabbi and a prophet: 3 And while he was sitting on the Mount of Olives the disciples came and asked him when they were by themselves, 'Tell us, when is this going to happen, and what sign will there be of your coming and of the end of the world?'4 And Yeshua answered them, 'Take care that no one deceives you,5 because many will come using my name and saying, "I am the Messiah," and they will deceive many.6 You will hear of wars and rumours of wars; see that you are not alarmed, for this is something that must happen, but the end will not be yet.7 For nation will fight against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.8 All this is only the beginning of the birth pangs.
