Are you interested in converting to Judaism as a believer in Yeshua?
We offer an official conversion to Judaism according to halachah (Jewish law). Yeshua was not a Christian, he was a Jew. His people and his land are Israel. His faith was the same one established by Torah – Judaism. He did not come to make a new religion, or to start a new people. God is not a polygamist, he has one bride, one people, and there is “one body and one Spirit, one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all” (Ephesians 4:5). Yeshua did not come to establish a new religion, but said instead “Salvation is of the Jews.” Christianity itself began as a sect of Judaism, until the pagan influences which pervade today set in, and the final break caused by the Bar Kokhba revolt. However in these days Hashem is gathering His people back into His fold, His people, Israel. Zechariah 8:23 says, “Thus saith the LORD of hosts: In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold, out of all the languages of the nations, shall even take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying: We will go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.”
All those who are grafted into the nation of Israel must also observe the laws of our nation. Exodus 12:49 states this principle, “the same Torah/law applies both to the native-born and to the foreigner residing among you.” This is repeated in other places in the Torah as well. Yeshua confirms this saying in Matthew 5:17-20 & 23:2-3, “Think not that I am come to destroy theTorah/law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven…The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do.”
Conversion to Judaism is open to all who have the heart of Ruth, who declare to Israel, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God” (Ruth 1:16).
