Friends, in an abundance of caution over predicted snow fall totals and expected hazardous driving conditions we are canceling Shabbat services today. Stay safe.
[2/21/15 7:57am]

It is very rare for us to cancel our Shabbat services due to weather. In case of bad weather, we will post service cancellations on KDKA 1020, KDKA TV and Pittsburgh CW, as well as their websites.

 

Saturday, Jan 3 after services – There will be an Oneg following services

Saturday, Jan 17 after services – There will be Sisterhood luncheon, fellowship and study.  We'll be starting "Girls with Swords." Workbooks and books should be here before then, for those who want to have one.  Come, all ye Sisters, join us!

Wednesday, Jan 28, 6 PM Targeted Prayer – at the house. Please consider joining. - The concept of targeted prayer is based on the department store (Target) chain's logo. Targeted prayer is productive, efficient, and focused.  It is meant to function in the best possible and least wasteful manner. Prayer is limited to one hour.  Time is maximized by targeting one pertinent issue and then moving on. Time is divided between inward and outward issues---thirty minutes for each.
Each thirty minute segment is broken down into ten minute segments for greater focus.

Dear Shoresh David family and friends, some of the things to keep in mind as we enter the New Year (both Jewish and secular) are:

1) We are called to both the Jewish Community for evangelism (let's pray that our recent partnership with the Miracle of Israel project will help us develop new strategies) and to the Church for education. (We do not come from a place of pride. We have our own blind spots and much to learn from the Church, but the reverse is also true. We can help shed light on their darkness.)

2) We exist in part for the salvation of Israel. We believe that Israel's (collective) salvation will have world transforming implications and promises based on a number of Bible passages, but primarily Romans 11:12, 15.

3) There is no other people group in Scripture where the Bible promises that with the salvation of that people group (the Jewish people) it will result in revival for the rest of the world.

4) Zachariah 8:22, 23 provides us with a "principle" for Jewish evangelism; a principle of multiplication. It is the principle of one to ten: for every one Jewish person saved, ten from the nations respond to the gospel. Regardless of the timeframe of Zechariah's prophecy, I believe the principle remains. This is not legalism or a law, but only a principle.

5) Romans 1:16 tells us that the gospel is to "the Jew first." We have taught on the theological justification "to the Jew first." Jewish people are not better or more valuable than any other people group in God's eyes, but they are more strategic in God's overall plan for world redemption. Interestingly, much of the resistance to the present applicability of this verse comes from pastors and church leaders.

6) God is a methodical God. God had a strategy for building His ancient Tabernacle. One would think that He would also have a strategy for building His Tabernacle today, the Church, and He does (Romans 1:16).

7) Based on Romans 11:11 salvation has come to the Gentiles to "provoke Israel to jealousy." We have here the assignment of the Church. Certainly the Church has other assignments, but as their primary assignment collectively they are to provoke Jews to jealousy so that they might get saved.

8) Finally, Jewish evangelism can be likened to tithing. "To the Jew first" can be seen as the first ten percent of our tithe to God; the first fruits of our giving. When we give to God off the top (not what's left over) we find that He often stretches the remaining ninety percent of our evangelistic efforts. This too is not a legalism or law, but only a principle (a guide).

Blessings, Ned and Sue
