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 Va'Etchanan 5781

'The Shema'

15 Av 5781 / July 24, Sat. 2021

By Rabbi Yitzhak Avraam

Parshas Va'Etchanan-begins with the plea of Moses to Hashem to enter the Promised Land being rejected by Hashem. Hashem then shows Moses the Land from atop the mountain. The Parsha then details the Commandments and the Ordinances that the People have to observe and The Ten Commandments are restated by Moses [albeit with some slight variations in the wording]. The Shema Prayer, the prayer of faith and belief of the People of Israel in Hashem, is then related by Moses to the Children of Israel.

The general theme of the Parsha- as indeed is the general theme of the entire Book of D’varim-is one of blessing in return for the performance of the Commandments and punishment for their non-performance. However, as we shall see, the place of Prayer and Penitence in Judaism is the specific theme of Parshat Va'Etchanan.

The word “Va'Etchanan”- is the first word of the Parsha. It means “And I beseeched”.

Hundred-and-Forty-Third Sidra՚ (Deut. 6:4-7:11): Walking in the ways of YHWH continued, recalling the Exodus, and against assimilation.

The Hundred-and-Forty-Third Sidra՚ commences with what has become known as the Torah's declaration of faith, "Hear Israel; YHWH our God YHWH is One." (Deut. 6:4) We are to love YHWH our God with all our heart, with all our life-force, and with all our substance. The Torah is to be upon our hearts, we are to impress its teachings upon our children, and its teachings and ways are to govern every moment of our lives. The Torah is to be bound to our very being; we are to become physical embodiments of the living Torah, as are our homes, households, and cities. YHWH is bringing us to the land that He swore to our fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give as an inherited possession to their descendants.

A land with great and good cities that we did not build, houses full of every good thing that we did not fill, hewn cisterns that we did not hew, vineyards and olive groves that we did not plant; and there we shall eat and be satisfied. However, with all this bountiful goodness produced by the land, we must make sure that we do not forget YHWH who brought us out of the land of Egypt from the house of slaves. We are to revere YHWH our God, serve Him, and swear by His name. We are not to walk after other gods, the gods of any other people, since YHWH our God Who is in our midst is a jealous God. If we do turn to other gods, YHWH's anger will blaze up against us and He will destroy us from off the face of the earth.

We are not to test YHWH our God as we tested Him at Massa (see Parashat Beshallaḥ). We are to keep the commandments, testimonies, and laws, of YHWH our God that He commanded us. "You are to do that which is upright and good in the eyes of YHWH; in order that it will be well with you." (Deut. 6:18) From the phrase upright and good, it can be deduced that in addition to doing that which is upright, we are also beckoned to do that which is good. In other words, it is not sufficient for us to act only in accordance with the strict letter of the Torah, i.e., to limit ourselves to the narrowest sense of the meaning. Yes, by observing the Torah in its narrowest sense, we are being upright, but are we going that extra mile and being good? YHWH desires that we treat each other in a kind and equitable manner and in order to do so we must deal with one another in a way that is much wider in sense than that of pure legality.

When our sons or daughters ask us in time to come, "What are the testimonies and the laws and the judgements, regulations that YHWH our God has commanded you?" (Deut. 6:20) We are to respond that we were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt, and YHWH brought us out of Egypt with a strong hand. Signs and wonders, great ones and evil ones, He put on all of Egypt before our eyes. He brought us out from there in order to bring us to the land that he swore to our fathers and give it to us. YHWH commanded us to observe all these laws, to revere YHWH our God, for our own good all the days to keep us alive. "And righteousness it shall be for us; when we observe to do all this commandment before YHWH our God as He commanded us." (Deut. 6:25) Notice in verse 20 the words commanded you rather than commanded us. This could mean that even though the son or daughter still recognizes YHWH, hence YHWH our God rather than YHWH your God, they feel that the observance of the commandments is not essential for them, hence commanded you. In the final words of the response the commanded you becomes commanded us.

TEACHINGS OF HAKHAM REKHAVI: "Hear Israel; YHWH our God YHWH is One. And you shall love YHWH your God; with all your heart and with all your soul/life force and with all your strength." (Deut. 6:4-5)

Pages, books, and volumes, have been written about the first verse of the Shemaՙ but in comparison, little attention has been placed upon the second verse. At face value we are commanded to love YHWH with all our heart, life-force, and strength, but what does this actually mean?

In order to gain an accurate insight into the intentions of the Torah we must not only possess knowledge of Biblical Hebrew, but we must also understand the mentality and philosophy behind the language; in other words, the mindset.

Love: The Torah commands us to love YHWH, however, the commandments of the Torah are very practical in nature, and yet love we think of as being an abstract concept, but in Biblical thought, love is seen as being something practical. In II Chronicles 19:2, it is said to Jehoshaphat king of Judah, "He who is evil you help, and those who hate YHWH you love". There are two parallel halves to this verse, and by creating the parallelism, the writer intends to reinforce the synonymous meaning between help and love on one hand and between he who is evil and those who hate YHWH on the other.

Thus, love is equated with helping. In I Kings 5:15 it is written that "Ḥiram always loved David", and to be placed within the context of the passage this phrase signifies that Ḥiram was always helpful and beneficial King David. Again, in II Chronicles 26:10 it is written concerning King ՙUzziyyahu of Judah, "And he built towers in the desert and dug many wells, for he had much live-stock, both in the Shefela and in the plain; farmers and vine dressers in the mountains and in Carmel, for he loved the soil." The words for he loved the soil indicate that King ՙUzziyyahu was beneficial to the land in that he invested his efforts in cultivating the land. Therefore, love in Biblical thought denotes "to be of use to", "to be beneficial to", "to assist or help", thus the Torah is not commanding us to feel something but to do something – to be useful or beneficial i.e., to help.

Conclusion: "and you shall love YHWH" means to be beneficial to Him, to help and assist Him in His work. In order for us to be helpful and beneficial to YHWH we must apply all of our heart, all of our soul/life force, and all of our strength.

Heart: In European/Western thought the heart is seen as the seat of the emotions, however in Biblical thought the stomach is the seat of our emotions, probably because when one becomes nervous, we feel "butterflies" in our stomach. The heart, on the other hand, is the seat of intellect i.e., understanding, thought, and planning, as it is written; "Did not YHWH give you a heart to know, and eyes to see and ears to hear; until this day." (Deut. 29:3) In English to be heartless is to be without feeling, but in Hebrew it has the meaning of being dull or foolish, "And Ephraim shall be, like a silly dove without heart; they call to Egypt they go to Assyria." (Hoshea 7:11).

The heart is thus the organ of thought, "And YHWH saw, that the wickedness of man was great on the earth; and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart, was only for evil continually." (Gen. 6:5) Thus heart in the verse, "And you shall know today and you shall lay it to your heart, that YHWH He is God, in the heavens above, and on the earth beneath; there is no other." (Deut. 4:39) implies with all of our intellectual understanding.

Conclusion: "with all your heart" means with our intellectual capabilities, understanding, thought, and planning.

Soul/life-force: Means with our very being, and even with our very lives if we find ourselves in a situation that would entail a choice between martyrdom or betraying YHWH and His Torah.

Strength: The Hebrew word mo՚od is usually translated as strength or might. The word mo՚od means "very" or "much" thus, strength or might does not signify our physical strength or might, but all that we have i.e., with all there is to us, i.e., our possessions, wealth, and inner-strength.

Therefore, the second verse of the Shemaՙ can be rendered: "And you shall be useful to/beneficial to/assist YHWH your God; with all your intellectual capabilities and with your life itself and with all there is to you."

We are to make sure that we do as YHWH has commanded us; we are not to turn aside to the right or to the left; but we are to walk only in the way that He has commanded us - in its entirety. We revere YHWH by keeping all of His laws and His commandments throughout our generations.

The Torah is equating revering YHWH with the keeping of His laws and commandments, therefore, not keeping His laws and commandments is tantamount to disrespecting Him. If we keep His Torah all the days of our lives, then we will live, all will be well for us, we will proliferate, and our days will be prolonged in a land flowing with milk and honey, the land that is our inheritance.

Shabbat Shalom!!!

Parshas Devarim 5781

'Mishne Torah'

8 Av 5781 / July 17, Sat. 2021

By Rabbi Yitzhak Avraam

The word “D’varim”- means “Words” or “Matters” and it contains the final words of Moses to the Children of Israel before he dies.

The Book is also called “Second Torah”-Mishne Torah” (Second/Retold Torah) as Moses here relates to the Children of Israel a “summary” of all the commandments, what had happened to them in the past 40 years, what Hashem requires of them when they enter the Land, and what will transpire at the End of Days.

If the Book of D’varim is a summary of the entire Torah then Parshat D’varim can be considered as a summary of the summary of the entire Torah. Parshat D’varim is always read on the Shabbat before the Fast of the 9th of Av, the day on which both the First and Second Temples were destroyed in Jerusalem. The Shabbat is called “Shabbat Hazon”- (Shabbat of Vision) from the words of Chapter 1 of the Book of Isaiah which begin “The vision of Isaiah son of Amotz”. The Haftorah ends with words of consolation; “Zion shall be redeemed with justice, and they that return to her [shall be redeemed with righteousness.

Book 1-The Account of Creation-Ma’aseh Beraishit. This is from the First verse of the first Chapter of the Book of Beraishit (Genesis) until verse 3 of Chapter 2 of the Book. This section of the Torah is read as one piece on Shmini Atzeret (SimchatTorah) when we restart reading the Torah from the beginning. The first three verses of Chapter two have 144 letters (Kedem) which is a clue that the Torah is written in the Code of Life.

• Book 2- The remainder of the Book of Beraishit (Genesis).

• Book 3-The Book of Shmot-Exodus.

• Book 4-The Book of Vayikra-Leviticus,

• Book 5-The Book of B’Midbar-Numbers from Chapter 1 to Chapter 10 verse 34.

• Book 6-The Book of the Inverted Nuns-verses 35 and 36 of the Book of B’Midbar.

• Book 7-The remainder of the Book of B’Midbar-Numbers. As we shall see this is truly the Book of the Wilderness where all the troubles befall the Children of Israel and they are to wander in the Wilderness of Sinai for a further 38 and a half years until they reach the point of entering the Land of Israel with Joshua.

• Book 8-The Book of D'Varim-Deuteronomy. This Book is also called “Mishne Torah” (second/retold Torah) as Moses here relates to the Children of Israel a “summary” of the Commandments, the history of the Children of Israel, what Hashem requires of them when they enter the Land and what will transpire at the End of Days.

The word "Mishne" can be rearranged to spell the word "Shmoneh" which means "eight" Thus this we can conclude that the Book of D'varim is indeed the Eighth Book. On Shemini Atzeret-Simchat Torah we finish reading the Book of D’varim and restart immediately reading the Book of Beraishit. The final passage of the Book of D’varim interestingly starts (Ch.33 verse 27) with the words “An abode of the G-d of Kedem (144).

Thus “The End” and “The Beginning” are one in Kedem- (144) which is a mirror image of Truth – Emet-) (441). The end of the Eighth book and the beginning of the First Book are one on Simchat Torah-The Rejoicing of the Torah. Hashem thought of the "End” at the “Beginning”. The purpose of “The Beginning” is “The End” which will usher in a new beginning for the Israelites People at the End of Days.

Thus, not only is the Book of D’varim a summary of the Torah, not only is the Parshat D’varim a summary of the summary of the Torah, but the word “HaD'varim” which means “The Words” contains within it the essence of the entire Torah and the foundation on which stands all of Creation-the 216 letters of the Explicit Name of Hashem.

Our Sages teach us that world was created with 10 Utterance (Avot 5.1). The "Utterances" are “The Words”- “HaD'varim” formed from the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet while the number 10 corresponds to the 10 Sphirot (the numbers). The numbers form letters, the letters from words, and "The Words"- HaD’varim of Hashem written in the living instrument called “Torah” sustain life.

In reality the Name of Hai exists and there is no division, the division is an artificial one created for us to repair and ascend to that higher state of existence, the existence of Hai in the World to Come.

Thus says HASHEM: Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom, nor the strong man boast of his strength, nor the rich man boast of his riches. But let him that boasts exult only in this, that he understands and knows me, for I am HASHEM Who practices kindness, justice and righteousness on the earth; for in these things I delight, says HASHEM. (Yirmiahu 9:22-23) (Haftorah on Tisha B’Av)

Life is an open book test. What does HASHEM want from us? What’s our goal? Look inside “The Book”, and see what Yirmiahu the Prophet says, “So says HASHEM…” Those introductory words should be enough to invite any curious mind to read further. What’s really important? What’s ultimately valuable? What means the most to HASHEM? It’s not a trick question at all! The answer is explicit. In order to hear the answer though and be ready to absorb the shocking truth we need to prepare ourselves a bit first.

There was a farmer who came to the big city because he had a big fancy event that he needed to prepare himself for. He went to a fancy and high-priced tailor to get measured for a new suit for the first time in his life. The tailor invited him to come pick up the suit on the day of the actual event and he guaranteed it would be a perfect fit, ready on time. Weeks later the farmer came back to the tailor to get ready for the gala gathering. The tailor was busy at the time so he handed the suit to the farmer and told him to try it on in the fitting room while he took care of other customers. The farmer struggled mightily to just put the pants on and the jacket was nigh impossible without ripping the seams. Shouts were heard from the dressing room, “Tailor how can you do this to me!” and then again, “Tailor, it’s way too small!” Then the farmer stepped out to show the tailor how wretchedly poor his craftsmanship was. Instead of being humiliated the tailor broke into laughter. “Silly farmer, before you put on a new suit, you have to first take off your work boots and overalls!”

Before we hear what HASHEM wants, we need to first strip away all of our preconceived notions and impressions of what society and people in general value and consider to be the highest priority. HSHEM says that he is not impressed with smarts, or strength, or wealth.

Only one thing is worthy of high praise and that is “knowing and understanding HASHEM, that it is HE Who does kindliness, and executes justices, and is charitable on the earth! That’s it!

Now imagine you have an App called, Yud- Hey-Vuv -Hey! What comes up when you press that button, icon? What’s in the file? Is it empty? Is it full of pictures, and feelings, and associations with that holiest of names for HASHEM!?

Sounds surreal? Maybe it’s an interesting analogy!? Could it be science fiction!? The truth is that we push that button hundreds of times a day in Davening, and possibly all day in our pedestrian lives, Baruch HASHEM! There is a two-dimensional representation of that name scripted all throughout our Siddur. Does it sit flat on the page like all the other words? Is HASHEM a two-dimensional entity in our lives, flat and lifeless, to be mumbled without emotion!? Shouldn’t it jump out and off the page like a tower rising up to the heavens. King Solomon wrote in Mishlei, “The NAME of HASHEM is a powerful fortress! The righteous run there and are sheltered!”

On Tisha B’Av we mourn the fact that we, the Israelites Nation, find ourselves in exile. The deeper and more important point is that HASHEM is in exile with us. Every sports team has a stadium and every city and state a capital, but where is the House of HASHEM!?

The first question in human history that was asked by HASHEM to Adam after he sinned, persists in its asking. The same letters of the book we read on Tisha B’Av, Eicha, is made of the same letters of this one-word-question, but transposed, “Ayecha! Where are you!” Where are we? The Baal Shem Tov said, “Wherever a person’s thoughts are, that is where he is entirely!” We could be in Times Square and actually be in New Square. We can be at the Western Wall and yet our mind is in Walmart. What comes up on the screen when we press that App Icon Yud- Hey Vuv -Hey? That’s the answer to the question, “Where are you?”

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;

  • Act with personal honesty and integrity;

  • Preserve the dignity of the synagogue, its members and those who serve it;

  • Support the daily work of the Congregation and its leadership;

  • Maintain a safe, warm and welcoming environment.

  • Communicate openly and truthfully

  • Ensure that disagreement relate only to principles and priorities, not personalities

Respect for Others

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

  • Enable those who are connected with synagogue life to reach their highest potential;

  • Teach that all are created b’tzelem Elohim (in the image of God) and that come with a great sense of honour, responsibility and a privilege;

  • Remember and remind others that the goals are relationship with the Holy One (Blessed be He), unity, not uniformity nor religiosity;

  • 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).

Oneg Shabbat

On every Shabbat after the service we host a community Oneg. It is led by our kitchen committee within The KBY Sisterhood. If you are visiting for the first time, you are not required to bring food. Simply enjoy the fellowship. Our gatherings are vegetarian, dairy and kosher meats. For those attending service regularly, please see Claudia if you will like to bring food to help contribute to the oneg. If you do not keep kosher but still would like to help-or cannot cook we will give you a list of kosher items that may be purchased from the store on your behalf to contribute. 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.
    Sometimes when the weather permits, the teachers will take the children outside to the park or backyard to play.
    If you do not want your child to participate, please let the teachers know when you drop them off.

  • If your child has an allergy or medical condition please speak with the teachers as well.

  • Bring snacks for your child, they will get hungry before the day is over, especially if we have long services or events.
    Bring extra clothes/diapers & wipes, etc. When in need or caught off guard, please see another mom or the Rebbetzin for help. Almost any mom attending will have extra supplies.

  • Teachers will not help your children in the washroom due to privacy laws. Ushers or Assistant Teachers may get you to help your child in the washroom. Please be prepared for this inadvance.

  • 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.

Information Visitors

Here are the information about our community so that you can be comfortable
when visiting with us:

Parking

Since our Shul is located in the center of the city this give us a few space for parking however you are allowed

to park on the side streets every day and on the weekends. If we have service during the daytime on the weekday, these streets are NOT available for parking. Note: Most city spaces are paying space.

Cameras & Recording

KBY do not allow for taping of our services or photos to be taken while service is occurring. However, we do allow photos during special ceremonies, honors and performances such at Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, concerts, baby dedications and award ceremonies.


Modest dressing code

KBY is a traditional Jewish and Messianic believers worship center, therefore our community etiquette reflects this:

  • Women do not wear men’s kippot & tallit but can wear a ladies’ head covering in the form of a scarf or hat.

  • When men approach the bema, they are to wear full-length pants and shirts not shorts or short sleeves.

  • Men wear kippot on the bema, especially when reading from the Torah. We have guest kippot in the lobby for your convenience.

  • Traditionally, women do not read from the Torah, but can read from the Writings and Messianic written during service. If you are called to read, a head covering is located at the bema for you to wear when reciting scripture and blessing before/after the reading.

  • The Rabbi will not meet with women alone and will always have a witness available during appointments or prayer with a member of the opposite sex.


  • The same goes for any of our leadership at KBY. Men pray with men and the women are prayed over by women leaders.
    Thank you for visiting KBY as we look forward to your presence at our service.
