Summary


About KBY

We are young and dynamic community We are young and dynamic community of believers whose uniqueness is that we’re both Jew and the nations who are bound together in the worship and praise of the One and only Creator, the G-d of Avraham, Yitzhak and Yaakov, the H-ly One of Yisrael (blessed is He) in light of the love of our Moshiach Yeshua through the traditions and customs of the Torah with central theme of “Teshuvah”.

And as Isaiah Hanavi said “Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant. Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called a house of prayer for all people”. (Is. 56:6-7)

Who We Are?

Linking the two sides. We’re groups of Jews and the Nations that worship in togetherness of spirit the G-d of our fore fathers, G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Yaakov, the H-ly One of Yisrael blessed be He. We believe that the H-ly One (Blessed be He) in His awesomeness has reveal His rules, regulations and guardians into the hearts of all men after the floods of Noah which is the basic laws that all men should live by, this guardians is commonly called Noahide laws.

On the other hand we see the ladder of holiness or ladder of intimate relationship through Yaakov’s dream that the H-ly One (blessed be He), He’s reveling his revelation constantly and calling everyone into a higher level of intimate relationship with Him and NOT religion but rather RELATIONSHIP. So therefore everyman if only willing possessed the ability to climb step by step up this ladder of h-liness and righteousness into an intimate, personal relationship and to become g-dlike or rather to be the mirror reflection of G-d in a closer relationship with the G-d Head.

As the H-ly One (blessed be He) called our fathers from the Nations to bring them a step higher and closer to Himself in the ladder of relationship and by choosing Yaakov over Esau making Yisrael the Light bearer and given us the 10 words to guardYisrael, a witness of the Great Light of consciousness.

So did Adonai took a tribe from the 12 tribes of Yisrael which is Levi and He draw them closer to Himself a step higher than the rest of the tribes in the ladder of intimate relationship with Him. Then the H-ly One (blessed be He) took the Kohath family from the tribe of Levi to bring them a step higher in the ladder of intimate relationship with Him.

The H-ly One (blessed be He) went further by taking a Man from the sons of Amram, Moshe to bring him a further step higher in the ladder of intimate relationship with Him together with his brother Aaron to be his spokesman who later became the High priest.

The H-ly One (blessed be He) went further by taking a Man from the sons of Amram, Moshe to bring him a further step higher in the ladder of intimate relationship with Him together with his brother Aaron to be his spokesman who later became the High priest.

The uniqueness of Kehilat Beta Yisrael is bringing the nations the sons of Noah to be engraved in the tree of the commonwealth of Yisrael and a step by step higher in the ladder of personal and intimate relationship with the G-d of our forefathers Abraham, Yitzhak and Yaakov.

At Kehilat Beta Yisrael everyone has the freedom to grow up or rather climb this ladder of intimate relationship one step at a time and at your own space with the basic guardian been the 7 laws of Noah which the Creator has written in the heart of all men and if you desire and willing to grow more by taking upon yourself more responsibilities to clamp higher up the ladder of intimacy in relationship with the H-ly One then glory be to Him.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be the light that shines in darkness by proclaiming freedom and liberty in relationship with the H-ly One (blessed be He) over slavery and bondage of religion.

Our Purpose

The purpose of KBY is to bring both Jews and Non-Jews together in oneness of spirit in the public worship of G-d according to the teaching, guardian and the principles of the Torah.

Parshas Bamidbar 5781

'Wilderness of LIFE'

4 Sivan 5781 / May 15, Sat. 2021

By Rabbi Yitzhak Avraam

We generally read Parashas Bamidbar in advance of the holiday of Shavuot(weeks). To begin with, Kabbalas Hatorah was a desert experience. We did not receive it in Egypt and we did not receive it in Eretz Canaan. God descended upon a mountain in the Sinai desert, and made it bloom like Gan Eden before He did. Talk about “atmosphere.”

Furthermore, the Talmud says that if a person wants to learn and keep Torah, they must make themselves into a midbar—desert, a symbol of humility. It is ownerless, trampled by anyone who goes there, and produces little of physical significance. Likewise, a person who sincerely wants to learn Torah has to detach themself from the trappings of this world. Otherwise, their heart will be divided between the eternal world of Torah and the temporal world of materialism, something many a Torah Jew struggles with especially today.

I have also pointed out in the past that the same letters that spell “midbar” also spell the word “medabehr,” which is someone who speaks. Considering that Onkeles says that receiving a soul gave us the power of speech, and the Talmud says that the entire purpose of life is to speak in Torah (Sanhedrin 99b), this is hardly incidental. The Zohar even says that it is a person’s speech that reveals who they truly are.

In this week’s parsha Bamidbar. “And Hashem spoke to Moshe in the Midbar (wilderness) of Sinai… saying. (1:1)” The Ramban writes that this sefer primarily deals with the mitzvos that we were commanded to perform in the midbar and the miracles that accompanied us through our travels.

The Midrash states that the Torah was given through three mediums: water, fire and the wilderness. Avraham passed through the fire of Uhr Kasdim in his steadfast refusal to deny Hashem’s existence. As we left Mitzraim we passed through the waters of Yam Suf. We then traveled into and through the midbar. The Ksav Sofer explains how each of these, teach us the underlying foundations of our connection to the Torah.

The Torah is compared to water. Just as water flows from a high place to a low one, so too Torah flows from a haughty person to a humble one. The Torah was given on Har Sinai, the lowest of the mountains, to demonstrate this aspect of the Torah.

In order to develop and grow in Torah, one must properly recognize his position vis-a-vis Hashem. He must realize the incredible gift that has been offered to him to connect to the will of his Creator. Only such a humble approach will allow him to properly access the Torah and thereby properly access Hashem.

The Torah is compared to fire. Fire illuminates the path of life for a person and allows him to choose the proper direction.

The fire of Torah illuminates this world, and gives us the perspective to distinguish between tempting illusions and reality.

The Torah was given in the midbar. This relates to the Torah being given to ‘the eaters of manna’. Such people had the perspective of the proper priorities of life and that which is unimportant. They had perfect faith that Hashem would provide for their needs as the need would arise. Luxuries were seen as impediments to proper growth.

There is a famous story of a wealthy businessman who was passing through Radin and took advantage of the opportunity to visit the Chofetz Chaim. He was astounded by the lack of furniture in the Chofetz Chaim’s home. Unable to contain himself, he asked, “Where is your furniture?” The Chofetz Chaim responded by asking him where was his furniture. The man, a bit surprised by the question, explained that he was only passing through. The Chofetz Chaim smiled and explained that in this world, he too, was only passing through.

This, of course, is a level that is far beyond us. With the environment in which we were brought up, with yesterday’s luxuries becoming our necessities, we would not be able to function, must less to grow, in such surroundings. Nevertheless, we must try, each on our own level, to minimize our dependence on the luxuries.

The Torah, for this reason, was given in the midbar to ‘the eaters of manna’. To focus on the purpose of our lives and not get sidetracked by the many distractions.

Shabbat Shalom!!!

Parshot Behar & Bechokotai 5781

'LISTEN TO THE VOICE'

26 Iyyar 5781 / May 8, Sat. 2021

By Rabbi Yitzhak Avraam

The reading of these two sections of the Torah concludes the book of Vayikra – the book that contains most of the commandments given to the Hebrew people on Sinai and for all eternity. One of the central commandments that appears in this week’s reading is that of shmitta – the rules regarding the sabbatical year that the Hebrew people were to observe when they were in the land of Israel. This commandment, in many of its forms, remains viable today.

While the second half of this week’s reading Bechukotai dealt with blessings for obedience and its 49 curses for disobedience. The Talmud teaches that God works middah-k’neged-middah, measure-for-measure (Sanhedrin 90a). The Tochaha, a series of unimaginable curses that, with prescient clarity, foretold the horrors that were destined to befall our people in its wanderings in exile.

Listen to the tales of African slavery, the inquisition, the cruelty of the crusades, and the horrors of the Holocaust. They reflect the Torah’s stern admonitions of a wayward nation cast asunder from the land of its inheritance. It tells of the destruction of cities and the starvation of its citizens. And one of those curses is about running from our enemies. “And you shall run the flight of one who flees from a sword, yet no one is pursuing you” (Leviticus 26:36). Simply explained, the Torah is telling us of the inherent fear that we shall have from the suffering that we have endured. We shall run at the slightest thought, even when there is no one in pursuit. A Torah Israelite is raised with the idea that getting good usually means we have done good, and getting bad usually means that we have acted badly.

Hester panim, when God hides His face from us, does not mean that the rule changes, as Rashi explains. It just means that we won’t be able to see how the “measure” we received was in response to the “measure” that we did. But as the Talmud says, God is not a vatran, meaning He never usually ignores the thing we do right or wrong. If He does, that person is in worse shape than the one getting punished.

Chizkiah Hamelech almost died in this world and the next one because he held off having children (Brochos 10a). And it wasn’t as if he didn’t want to have children so he could travel lighter, like many today. He had learned through prophecy that his son would turn the nation to idol worship, and had denied himself the mitzvah and pleasure of fathering children to save the nation.

And yet God’s response was not only to cut Chizkiah—the man who was almost Moshiach (Sanhedrin 94a) — down in this world, but to cut him off from the next world as well! After being told that he was wrong to try and second-guess God by Yeshaya Hanavi, he did marry and fathered Menashe who, as prophesied, turned the nation to idol worship.

Going back to Behai, the Shmitta even in its present circumstance, as a Torah ordinance, it has strong influence over the everyday life of citizens of the State of Israel. Special arrangements must be made regarding agricultural produce grown in the Holy Land in this sabbatical year, and various ways have been found to enable the agricultural economy to continue to function according to Hebrew law and tradition, even during the sabbatical year.

But the idea behind the sabbatical year remains fixed in the minds and hearts of the Hebrew people wherever they may live. And that basic idea is simple: that the world and all its land belong to and is subject to the will of the Creator, and that human beings are only temporary trustees over the land.

One of the most difficult ideas for people to accept is that the physical life (Matter) itself is transitory and temporary. We pretend we will be here forever and we live our lives accordingly, even though we are all aware of our mortality and the transient nature of human existence. We are always saving for tomorrow, even when we are quite old and advanced in years, and logically, really do not need to save for a tomorrow that, deep down in our hearts, we know we may never see.

We involve ourselves in future projects that can only benefit future generations, because we believe that somehow that future benefit and achievement will accrue to our credit when heaven balances the books, so to speak. It is this contradictory nature of human beings, to plan for a future that instinctively one knows one will not actually witness in this world, that really fuels all human progress and is the basis for the advancement of civilization over the ages.

All of this is based upon the realization that the sabbatical year imposes upon us, that there is no permanence for anything in this present life, and what we do achieve does not permanently belong to us. We are merely temporary custodians of the riches of the Almighty that He has bestowed upon his creatures in this world. This is really the sublime and internal message that the sabbatical year, with all its laws, ordinances, and adjustments, imposes upon us, and makes it a year of renewal and uniqueness.

Shabbat Shalom!!!

Code of conduct
Kehilat Beta Yisrael Synagogue (Behaviour)

Therefore to him that knoweth to do good and doeth it not, to him it is sin. It is the responsibility of members of Kehilat Beta Yisrael to ensure that the synagogue is an ethical stronghold in all its pursuits and dealings. Members should be guided by kedushah (holiness) in promoting the synagogue's mission of having personal relationship with the Holy One (Blessed be He) and sustaining Judaism. Their role is that of managing the sacred, by bringing vision, wisdom and dedication to their commitment and our holy Congregation. In doing so; they are expected to adhere to the following principles:

Shabbat Observance:
All Kehilat Beta Yisrael Synagogue members and staff shall observe the principles teach by the Torah and those pertaining to Shabbat observance (including arrival prior to Shabbat service and all synagogue event or services, as well as refraining from the use of electronic devices during Shabbat or Yom Tov services); all males must wear Kippot during all services and meals, and Tallit/Tefillin for morning services, where appropriate. Every female most wear the head cover during the Shabbat and all holidays service. The Kehilat Beta Yisrael Synagogue member Dress Code will be observed at all times.

Expectations:

  • Gain spiritual and personal growth in relationship with the Most High;

  • Serve as role models;

  • Act as advocates and positive spokespersons for the synagogue;

  • Embrace tzedakah (righteous action).

Accountability:

  • Uphold Torah values such as fairness, derech Eretz (respectful engagement), mutual respect, sensitivity and openness;

  • Communicate openly and truthfully

Respect for Others

  • Ensure that everyone involved in synagogue life is treated with kavod (respect);

  • Ensure that boundaries, prerogatives and expertise are respected.

The privileges and benefits bestowed upon members are a blessing, creating the opportunity for personal growth through commitment to the Jewish community. By living a committed Torah based life, each of us can improve while contributing to tikkun-olam (repair of the world).

You may also give freely to the oneg fund by marking your tithe envelope and placing it inside of the donation boxes. For more information please see Rebbetzin or Madam Claudia.

Children Torah Class

If you have children and you intend to come with them, we have classes only during regular services on Shabbat. The age range for classes during shabbat services are 1 yr olds-11 yrs old. Children within the ages of 3months along with the mother and 1yr can attend class as long as they are potty trained and can verbally let the teachers know that they need to go to the washroom.

  • Children 3 yrs old and under WHO ARE NOT potty trained, meet in the “Kid Zone” in the back area for supervised play time only with their parents or guardians.

  • There is also a nursery upstairs for nursing and sleeping babies as well as a full kitchen to prep food.

  • Do not allow your children to play outside without supervision, especially near cars. We do not any accidents.

Women Group (Sisterhood)

Women are unique and wonderfully created by G-d. Proverbs 31:10-11 “A woman of valor who can find, she is worth far more than precious jewels. The heart of her husband safely trusts in her, and he profits greatly thereby.” Women live complex lives full of ups and downs, yet they can make a huge difference in the world around them, be it at home or at the shul and at society at large. KBY sisterhood understands these challenges and they offer real-life support to those striving to maintain life’s balance. Most importantly KBY seek to lead women to a personal relationship with the H-ly One. Our Women’s Missionary helps to extend G-d’s love through support for those in need through prayer support and other forms of assistance. While our Girls Night Out provides a way for ladies from all stages of life to share, to challenge, to love and to support one another in a fun and relax way, away from daily routine.

Men Group (Brotherhood)

The objective of our brotherhood ministry dedicated to men is to disciple and equip our male members in their roles as men of G-d, whether married, single, older, younger in responsibilities to their spouse, family, KBY, the society and the country at large . Our men meeting (Shacharit), which gathers monthly, also opens the opportunity to discuss the forward development of the synagogues.
