What can you expect when you visit Yedidei Adonai Messianic Jewish Fellowship?
10:30 a.m. Torah/Mincha Service (liturgy)
11:45 a.m. Midrash (teaching)/Children’s Class
12:45 Hebraic Messianic Worship
1:15 Oneg (Kosher Potluck)
Our liturgical services and midrash times always include ASL interpretation and are livestreamed each week from our Yedidei Adonai Facebook page and R' Gabriel's YouTube channel, where you can also access his midrashes.
Members generally dress nicely but casual. Some men bring tallits and kippahs.
During the midrash, a designated parent takes the children to their classroom for a Torah lesson and play time. Before they are dismissed, Rabbi Gabriel will give them a brief talk and a special blessing under the tallit.
The worship service typically features familiar contemporary messianic songs from artists like Paul Wilbur, Miqedem, Ted Pearce, and some traditional Jewish songs. You will also frequently hear original music by the Lumbrosos.
After worship, we share a potluck meal called oneg. If it's you're first time, we don't expect you to bring anything. All food contributions are expected to be biblically clean, based on Leviticus 11.
