Here is a short video describing who we are.
Kehilat She’ar Yashuv (KSY) קהילת שאר ישוב is a Shomer Torah Synagogue based in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. We are not a Messianic Congregation.
Our doors are open to anyone, from all nationalities, who has the desire to learn how to live a rich and fufilled life based upon the principles of the Torah. Our Rabbi teaches the importance of doing true teshuva (to turn to the God of Israel); in other words, to have a relationship with the Creator.
We are stepping back in time in order to reclaim our true Biblical heritage, the Torah, which gives us boundaries and principles within which we can live a full and rich life. Instead of conversion to any religion, we learn about the transforming power of God’s Words.
We want to fulfill our calling, as B’nei Israel (children of Israel, ) to bring the “written” Torah and especially the Ten Commandments to all the nations. This is especially important in light of all that is happening in the world today. People are leaving their religions in droves because they have become disillusioned. Sadly, they are throwing the baby out with the bath water, i.e. they are turning their backs on their Creator who did not create religion, man did. Religions divide while the Creator unifies. Fanaticism is on the rise at every front, and political correctness does not allow the Truth to be told.
Our great teacher, Rabbi Yeshua taught us “You shall know the Truth (which refers to the Creator) and the Truth (the Creator) shall make you free.” The Torah is as alive today as it was when Moshe received it on Mount Sinai, and it is our duty and calling to teach its principles to all who want to learn. The “Ger” or “Stranger among us” has the same rights and the same responsibility to observe all that the written Torah requires (Numbers 15:15), contrary to what the religious leaders teach.
Jews and Gerim are united under the banner of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and are all welcome here.
As it is written, כִּי בֵיתִי, בֵּית-תְּפִלָּה יִקָּרֵא לְכָל-הָעַמִּים
