We are a congregation of Jewish and Gentile believers who follow after the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob through the Jewish Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth. We follow the Jewish culture, calendar, festival days and traditions in worship and lifestyle except when tradition is contradictory to the Holy Scriptures.
Join Us For Services
Services are held Saturday nights at 6 pm. We start with a call to gather and worship. Each week we present a Jewish Objection to Jesus as Messiah. A drosh on the Torah portion is followed by praise, worship and prayer. The sermon or guest speaker will present and then we celebrate Havdalah. Refreshments or oneg follows the service.
On the third Shabbat of the month we will share a fellowship meal. You may contribute side dishes, salads, desserts or drinks. Please respect those of our congregation that observe kashrut and do not bring any dish containing pork, shellfish or other item prohibited in Leviticus 11.
Bible Studies for All
Join us Tuesday evenings at 7:00 PM for food, fellowship and Bible study. We meet in the worship center downstairs. The doors open at 7 PM, class begins on-time at 7:30 and ends promptly at 9 PM. We are currently studying “Christianity, Cults & Religions.” Learn the particulars of other cults and religious traditions and learn how to share with their followers the truth of the Gospel of The Messiah, Yeshua.
Choose Life! Support our Baby Bottle Campaign for Rockville Women’s Center
Mishkan HaShofar Congregation is committed to helping save babies through education and adoption. With the help of God, we can make a positive difference in the life of a mother and certainly with her baby by helping the mother choose life. Join us as we raise money through the virtual baby bottle campaign to help educate women on ALL their options when they become pregnant.
God stated that He has set before us life and death–choose life!
