I’m so happy that there is a channel like yours on Facebook, I am an ultra-orthodox Rabbi, but I also believe that Yeshua is the Messiah of the people of Israel.
I found him while studying in the yeshiva and knew it was true and started to see all that was said (in Rabbinic Judaism) about Yeshua is a lie, because there is nothing tangible in the Scriptures to say he was not the Messiah. Even the Gemara itself says He is the Messiah!
Today my entire family including my parents who are also ultra-orthodox , and my brothers are now following Yeshua. We still live in an ultra-Orthodox neighborhood.
Everything I learned in the Torah has given me strength to speak about Yeshua with a language that the ultra-Orthodox can understand. My little brothers study the Talmud, and I still have my rabbinic authority, they (rabbinic authority) could not take it away from me.
I ask that you pray for the health of my newly believing family. Thank you very much and many blessings in the name of Yeshua the Messiah we know is true!
What to know
- Observing Jewish (oral) law is far more important to Orthodox Jews than to other Jews. In fact, nearly eight-in-ten Orthodox Jews (79%) say observing Jewish law is “essential” to what being Jewish means to them, compared with just 19% among Jews overall.
- Orthodox Jews primarily study The Talmud, not the Torah. The Talmud often contradicts the Bible.
- Jews who accept Yeshua as their Messiah are often outcast from their family, with their family going so far as to pray the “Kadish” over them, a prayer said for those who have passed away.
- The concept of a Messiah is not foreign at all to Orthodox Jews, with the Lubavitcher Rabbi, Menachem Schneerson, being one of the more popular ones (even though he fulfilled very few of the messianic prophecies).
How to Pray
- Pray for protection around those that decide to follow Yeshua.
- Pray that they may be a light in the darkness around them.
- Pray that they would be able to meet other believers and enjoy fellowship together.
- Pray that all Israel, regardless of background, may be saved!
