Congregation Beth Yeshua (CBY) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is a Messianic Jewish congregation made up of Jewish and Gentile believers in the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus). It is a part of a growing worldwide movement known as Messianic Judaism. Messianic Jews believe that Yeshua (Jesus) is the promised Jewish Messiah whose death fulfills Hebrew Scripture in providing a permanent kaparah (atonement) for sin. When you visit Beth Yeshua, you will experience a community of like-minded Jews and Gentiles who worship the G-d of Israel in a Jewish environment, celebrating the Jewish holidays and festivals and raising their children to know and follow the G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
A typical service at Beth Yeshua includes traditional Jewish liturgy, as well as a worship team who seeks to lead the congregation in encountering the Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) as they sing praises to the G-d of Israel. Our congregational worship also includes “Davidic Worship,” a unique form of Israeli folk dance, adding joyful vibrancy to our worship.
