Welcome to Ami Yisrael
Spend your Sabbath afternoon with us as we delve into the Scriptures from a Hebraic perspective - the same perspective from which they were written. Our Hebrew Roots fellowship enjoys interactive Bible studies, praise through song and dance, and numerous activities throughout the year. Come discover the Word of God with us!
Elijah in the Passover
When you think of Passover, you don't often think about Elijah the prophet, unless of course, you're Jewish and have participated in a traditional Jewish Passover meal.
But Elijah has a number of connections to the Passover. The role he played during the waining days of the ancient kingdom of Israel, as well as his role in prophecy, give us a greater understanding of this remarkable prophet. By seeing how his life is intertwined with that of the Redeemer of Israel , we can gain a greater appreciation for the true 'Passover Lamb' - Messiah Yeshua.Learn More ...
Hebrew Roots is an 'awakening' . . . a realization that Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) meant what He said when He told his disciples that 'not one jot or tittle would pass from the law til all things are fulfilled'. Since most prophecy has yet to be fulfilled, those of us who live by His words believe we should fashion our lives after the Torah-observant example of Yeshua.
To put it in a nutshell - we believe we are saved by His grace, and that saved people will attempt to follow in the footsteps of their Saviour.Learn More ...
Being a Disciple
Have you ever considered how you ultimately became aware of the Hebrew walk - the walk of Messiah Yeshua? How did this message finally crossed your path and peak your interest?
No matter what your circumstance, one thing is for sure – you are here because you chose to follow the teachings of someone else. In fact, there is a common denominator amongst all of us. We have all chosen to follow the teachings and testimony of 15 Jewish men – the 12 disciples along with James, Luke, and Paul.Learn More ...
the Ami Yisrael Fellowship
'Ami Yisrael' is Hebrew for 'my people Israel'. We take the words of God, Yeshua, Moses, the prophets, and Yeshua's disciples seriously. Thus when Paul said "... if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise" (Gal. 3:29) we believe that applies to us. We are not trying to be Jewish, for the Jews are just a small part of the Hebrew people. Instead, we hope to pattern our lives after that of the Hebrew of Hebrews - Messiah Yeshua.Learn More ...
Season of Our Joy
One of the highlights of the year is the annual observance of the Feast of Tabernacles. This 8-day festival pictures the Messianic Kingdom when Messiah Yeshua reigns on the earth from David's throne in Jerusalem. His kingdom will start small, but will grow until it encompases the earth.Learn More ...
Ami Yisrael is the host of 'Season of Our Joy', one of the oldest 'Hebrew Roots' FOT sites in the country. You are invited to share the festival with us in beautiful East Texas.
Yeshua to Jesus
Why do our English bibles call our Savior by the name Jesus? Is that the name He was called by when He walked here on the earth? Does 'Jesus' really mean 'salvation'?Learn More ...
When we begin to really study our Bible, we see that His Hebrew name would be "Yeshua". and that 'Yeshua' really does mean 'salvation''. So where did 'Jesus' come from? It is a paganized version of 'Yeshua'? Is it an attempt to honor the mythical god Zeus? Or is it simply just a bad transliteration?
