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

Each time I begin to study Bereshit I wonder what new golden nuggets will be waiting for me to share with our community.  When Adam and Eve made that decision to disobey our Creator that began the downward spiral of humanity right up to where we are today — on the verge of self-destruction. The consequences of sin is truly death. They had ample opportunity to turn from their guilt and make it right with God. Instead they allowed their shame to remain exactly as it was and simply tried to cover up. How many of us do the same thing?

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.


Long ago when I was a young professor of thermodynamics and considered myself to be quite brilliant, one of my students asked me what was it that held our system together if the second law of thermodynamics - entropy, was indeed true. I had to admit that I had no answer and that something much greater than man was holding this planet together. Thus through science, began my process of coming to believe in the existence of a Creator.  Little by little I lost my stuck-up attitude and saw how great our Creator was and just how small I was. I embarked upon a journey of being humbled which included many highs and lows. Being humbled is not easy for us as humans for our ego will do anything it can to protect itself from being embarrassed in front of others.  We have slowly learned over the years that to keep up appearances is more important than to show who we really are.  We put on a mask for people so that we will be liked and accepted.  

There is much to learn from the creation story in Genesis about our situation today. When Adam and Eve disobeyed God by eating the forbidden fruit, our Creator called out to Adam, “where are you?”  Adam admitted that he was hiding.  God gave Adam the opportunity to come clean and to admit what he had done but when God asked him, “Why are you hiding?” Adam responded, “Because I was naked.” “How do you know that you were naked?” Then came Adam’s response...”the woman that you made, made me do it!” We as men love to pass the buck. This is still our problem today; we prefer to blame someone else rather than to take responsibility for our decisions.  Who was Adam ultimately blaming? He was pointing the finger at God. The woman basically did the same thing, blamed God for creating the snake which had deceived her!  

What was the real problem with Adam and Eve’s failure in reference to God?
