About Shuvah Yisrael

You may be wondering about Shuvah Yisrael and who we are!

Our name Shuvah Yisrael captures both the purpose and essence of this congregation. It comes from the Hebrew Scriptures (Hosea 14:2) and it means “Return Israel!” It is both an invitation and a command from God to His people, encouraging them to return to covenant faithfulness – to love and worship Him, and to exhibit care and concern and support for each other and also to a world that desperately needs God’s love.

Having served the synagogue over the past two decades, I feel very privileged to be part of a community of such love, commitment, intelligence and good will. Shuvah Yisrael has been a member in good standing of the Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations since 1994 and has been one of the most innovative communities in the Messianic Jewish movement.

After your visit to our website, I hope you will consider attending one of our services or events. I hope you will find them as I do, filled with vitality, warmth, and spiritual vigor.

So, have a look around, learn more about Shuvah Yisrael and let us know how we might be helpful to you and your family. Please feel free to contact us and/or sign up for our mailing list to receive newsletters and updates on events. We look forward to hearing from you.
