Kehilat She’ar Yashuv (KSY) קהילת שאר ישוב is a Torah-based Congregation in Montreal, Quebec, Canada open to both Jews and Gentiles of every nationality who want to learn how to live a life based on the principles of the Torah. Our Rabbi teaches how to do true teshuva (to turn to the God of Israel); in other words, to have a relationship with the Creator.
We understand Yeshua ben Yosef as the messiah according to his Biblical and Hebraic context before any other religions changed his identity. Here Jews are free to remain Jewish and Gentiles to remain Gentiles. We do not abandon nor betray our communities or families. We are simply coming under the covering of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Rabbi Yeshua’s role was to complete what Moshe Rabeinu had done. He brought the Torah to all the nations as Israel was meant to do — to be “ohr l’goyim” , a light to the nations. Yeshua told us himself that he did not come to abolish the Torah but to bring his people back to it. Neither he nor his talmidim (students) formed a new religion. They were all devout followers of the Torah. We are stepping back in time and reclaiming our true Biblical heritage. The Torah 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 the living Word of God— the Torah.
We are fulfilling our calling as B’nei Israel (children of Israel) of bringing 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 with which they have become disillusioned. Sadly they are throwing the baby out with the bath water, i.e. they turn away from the Creator. He did not create religion, man did. Religions divide while the Creator unites. Fanaticism is on the rise on every front and political correctness does not allow the Truth to be told. 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 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. As it is written, “…for My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples” Isaiah 56:7b.כִּי בֵיתִי, בֵּית-תְּפִלָּה יִקָּרֵא לְכָל-הָעַמִּים
