The Ami Yisrael Hebraic Fellowship . . .

. . . was founded February 12, 2005 as a weekly Torah Study (the Ami Yisrael Torah Study) and even though we changed the name a few years back, the weekly interactive study of the Torah - God's "Words of Life" - is still a major part of our fellowship.  At that first meeting there were only about 12 people people in attendance - 6 torah scrollof them children.  Our vision was - and still is - to have a community of believers who simply want to study the scriptures together without the constraints of 'doctrine' getting in the way of discovering the truth YHWH has hidden in His Word.

Our fellowship has now grown to an average weekly attendance of about 50, and we still follow the tradition on which we were founded - the traditional Torah reading cycle.  Our typical Sabbath service begins with a two hour study of the foundational scriptures of the Bible with the focus on tying them to the words of the prophets, The Messiah, and His disciples - including Paul.  And since the Apostolic Scriptures (oftentimes referred to as the New Testament) were written by 8 Jewish men, we strive to understand the culture of the first century Jewish people so we can better understand the words of The Messiah as well as of Paul - one who used the Torah and the Jewish culture to instruct those who were turning to God's way.  (See our Fellowship Brochure)

After a short break, the Sabbath service continues with Praise and Worship through song and dance < Why? > along with the reading of traditional scriptures and blessings, and followed by a message from one of our many capable teachers.  All teaching sessions are followed by a period of questions and answers.

Children's Bible Study . . .

Childrens Study2

The Shema (Deut. 6:4-9), along with many other passages of scripture, shows that we should diligently teach the word of YHVH to our children.  Yeshua (Jesus) also emphasized the importance of children and was indignant that some of his disciples tried to prevent children from being brought to Him.  The Proverbs also instruct us to "train up a child in the way . . ." (Prov. 22:6), and since the Hebrew word for "train up" is "chanak" (a root word which means "dedicate") we see that we should also "dedicate" them to the way and walk of God. For this reason, one of the core principles in the Ami Yisrael Fellowship is the importance of family and the training of our children.

Though the responsibility for the training of children lies with the parents, our desire is to support their efforts by offering a structured children's class that focuses on promoting the "Hebrew" walk as defined in the Torah and displayed by Messiah Yeshua.

The Children's Class is the first order of business each Sabbath.  The class takes place in the meeting room adjacent to the main hall.  Children who are old enough to sit still and benefit from a classroom-style lesson are invited to attend (parents many need to accompany small children).

Four different "themes" are taught: 1) the Life of the Messiah, 2) Torah Application, 3) Bible Characters, and 4) Hebrew Language.  It's our hope that the children take away from each lesson points that help them connect the scriptures to their daily walk and to a better understanding of our Savior - Yeshua the Messiah.
