The Mabee Family

“On our way home from one of our rare nights out, my then pregnant wife and I decided to stop by what appeared to be a small café. The lights were on but the door was locked, we were about to walk back to our car when Rabbi Paul Saal came to the door and invited us in. After explaining that we had actually stumbled upon a Messianic Synagogue he gave us a quick tour. It was close to a year later, after the birth of our son, that we left the kids with relatives and attended our first service.  We returned the next week, kids in tow, and have been attending ever since.

I don’t think there is any way I can describe in words, and do it proper justice, how open and welcoming the congregation was, a congregation we are now pleased to count ourselves among.

This congregation truly is a community with members who care for one another and continually reach out to help those in need.

Shuvah is the perfect fit for our family.  Having an interfaith marriage, Christian and Jewish, being part of a Messianic Synagogue is very important to us.  Our children are growing up in a Jewish community that believes in Yeshuah.  It is my belief that our congregation brings out the best from both faiths.”
