Question:

What is the importance of Messianic Synagogues to this movement?

Answer:

Messianic synagogues are the heart of the Messianic Movement. They are the center of Messianic life. A
Messianic synagogue is where we, as Messianic Jews can believe in Yeshua as the Messiah, live a Jewish
lifestyle, raise our children to be Jewish, and worship the G-d of Israel in a Jewish manner.  It is also where
Gentiles with the heart of Ruth can come to worship and enjoy their Jewish heritage. Interestingly enough,
just as Messianic Judaism is not new, Messianic synagogues are not new either. Actually, we find they
have existed for two thousand years! From Biblical and historical records, we know that there were
Messianic synagogues throughout the Roman Empire and beyond, as early as 50 A.D.! (Jms. 1:1,2:2, Heb.
10:27).
