Beit Yeshua

October to December





























































































































Isaiah 62
I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night:
ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence,
And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.


Psalm 122:6  Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: may they prosper who love you. 



Beit Yeshua gathered in the Family Life Center on Friday, November 29, 2013, to celebrate the Biblical Festival of Hanukkah - also spelled Channukah.  This is the first time since 1880 that the Feast of Hanukkah has overlapped with the American holiday of Thanksgiving.

Each family that had brought a Hanukkiah (A 9-Branched Hanukkah Menorah) was asked to light it as the evening began


Blessings were said before and after the candles were lit


Susan lit Shabbat candles and Paul said blessings over the bread and wine


Curtis led everyone in a Scripture from John 10 from the Orthodox Jewish Bible


There was a time of prayer followed by a time of praise and worship


Chuck shared the Hanukkah story and involved everyone in a short midrash


Jonathan shared a story about a Jewish family's Hanukkah experience during the Holocaust of World War II
