Hi and welcome to B'nai Maccabim! We look forward to getting to know you further. In the meantime, check back often as we update our site and add some meaningful content.
שלום לכם / Shalom!
The Story of Maccabees is usually relegated to the celebration of Channukah, but the heart of their story was a commitment to restore the house of G-d as a place of worship and praise and to stand against the cruelty and injustice that threatened to engulf them. We are their sons!
In Hebrew, being a son means more than just shared genetic material. A son is meant to build upon the foundation of his father's house. As sons of the Maccabees (B'nai Maccabim), we will take up the hammer of our fathers to build a house of worship and praise to our G-d, and we will actively pursue Tikun Olam (the Repairing the world), through a commitment to the study, understanding, and living out of the Word of G-d, until the fullness of Kingdom of the Messiah, Yeshua, is established upon the earth.
Therefore, we are committed:
• to communicate the message of salvation in Messiah Yeshua, to the Jewish people first, and then to the gentiles,
• to teach and role model biblically based Jewish observances, lifestyle, and values throughout our community, especially to our children,
• to equipping and enabling the people of our Synagogue to effectively serve the Synagogue and the community at large.
