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.

5TH Day Chol Hamoed Sukkot 5782

'Sukkah a Representative of Man’s Life'

19 Tishrei 5782 / Sept. 25, Tue. 2021

By Rabbi Yitzhak Avraam

The offering of Sukkoth is unique in three ways: First, they include a total of 70 bulls, to invoke protection for the seventy gentile nations; Secondly, the numbers of bulls are different for each day of the festival; Thirdly, there is a special water libation, which was performed every morning of Sukkoth.

It is regarding Sukkoth that the Torah instructs us “to be Joyful on your holiday”. Now, joy, like almost all other emotions is not something that can be turned on and off like a faucet. A person either feels joyful or not. You cannot tell a person who is sad and depressed to just magically feel joyful and expect that that should somehow happen. The Rabbis have already remarked that since we have just passed through the cleansing processes of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippurim and feel relieved, forgiven and confident in our faith and in our relationship to the our Creator, it is only natural to expect that we will feel joyful at this time of the year.

But, to a certain extent, this type of answer really only begs the question. It is quite difficult for anyone to feel completely satisfied with one’s self and one’s actions after undergoing a thorough, honest and often painful self-examination? We are now privy to our faults and failing and even though we are confident that Heaven’s goodness has forgiven us, we are still well aware of the problems that remain within us and limit, if not even, prevent, any feelings of overwhelming joy to take hold. And yet the Torah insists that we be joyful and of good cheer on this holiday of Sukkoth.

The Sages have given a markedly different perspective to the emotion of joy and it is this perspective that I feel the Torah is speaking of when commanding us regarding the holiday of Sukkoth. The rabbis in the Talmud stated that there is no joy comparable to the joy one feels when doubts have been resolved and clarity and reality reign.

Much of the sadness that exist in life is based on its uncertainty, in the plethora of options and choices, the consequences of which are never clear to us and in the difficulty we face in placing our lives and their events into proper perspective. A flash of clarity, an insight of perspective, a moment of confident decision can truly bring about a feeling of joy.

Sukkoth can provide us with that clarity and perspective. It teaches us that our physical home and house is not quite as important as we may think it is. It instructs us that everything in this physical world is temporal not permanent and it also alight us in the beauty of nature, the necessity for Heaven’s blessing of rain, productivity and in the realization that even though our lives and existence are indeed fragile, we should treasure every breathing moment and see it in the perspective of our immortality and eternity.

Sukkoth engenders within us the appreciation of correct priorities in our lives and the achievement of a proper balance between the illusion and reality. It provides us with a most necessary dose of humility- one that can allow a person to see things in a proper perspective.

The Hebrew people throughout our long and many times difficult years and experiences have always realized that we are living in a Sukkah.

That realization alone was sufficient to allow individual Jews and Hebrew society generally to function, survive and even prosper. By absorbing this lesson of the Sukkah- its beauty, fragility, temporary nature, serenity and relationship to nature and the world we live in, we immerse ourselves in God’s perspective, so to speak, of the world and our place in it.

That alone should awaken within us an emotion of joy and satisfaction. In Temple times, the libation of water on the holy alter of the Temple in Jerusalem on the holiday of Sukkoth created a national emotion of joy and rejoicing. It is interesting to note that water, which most of us take for granted, is not nearly as expensive a commodity as an animal sacrifice or an offering of gold or silver would have been. But nevertheless, it was the offering of water that occasioned the great celebrations of joy in ancient Jerusalem.

Simply because it was almost a relatively mundane offering, it emphasized the perspective of life that Sukkoth was meant to convey.

One can be joyful even with plain water if one realizes the blessings of nature and of the benevolence of G-d. In a world of excess and the pursuit of luxuries, Sukkoth comes to remind us of our true priorities and the necessary of a healthy balance in our live and behavior.

Chag Sameach Sukkot and Shabbat Shalom!!!




LAST WEEK

Parshas Ha'azinu 5782

'Moshe Rabbenu is alive even after death!!!'

12 Tishrei 5781 / September 18, Sat. 2021

By Rabbi Yitzhak Avraam

The Song of Moses is almost complete. With soaring praise to God and the heavens above, stinging rebuke and a promise of ultimate redemption to the people below, he prepares to make his final ascent to Mount Nebo. There, he will view the land of Canaan, and pass away into eternity without ever getting to set foot there.

On the precipice between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, we not only “give ear” (the literal meaning of Ha’azinu, this week’s Torah portion) to Moses’ extraordinary poetry; we are also asked to give our hearts. In his penultimate moments with the Children of Israel, Moses begs them: “Place upon your heart all the words which I have testified before you this day. Enjoin them upon your children, to guard and to do all of the terms of this Torah. For it is not a trifling (empty) thing for you – it is your very life,” (Deuteronomy 32:47).

In this year like no other, as the news and challenges of each day frighten and exhaust me, threatening at times to pull me under, Moses’ words feel almost unbearably heavy. Yet I manage to surface, taking gulps of whatever fresh air I can find, clinging to these ancient prescriptions in this churning, raging sea of illness, fire, hurricanes and political upheaval, for our Torah has always been our life preserver.

Parshat Ha’azinu reflects the honest emotions running through Moses’ veins: the sadness, anger and loss; a palpable fear coupled with a warning of what’s to come if the Israelites stray from God.

Moses lauds God for choosing the Israelites as God’s people, hoping that the people will always choose God in return. There is, however, a sense of ambivalent acceptance as he gazes out to see the Promised Land that he will never touch. Yet, there remains an optimism of what’s possible if the Israelites heed his instructions. Perhaps, in the stinging rebuke of the people, Moses is conveying something deeper. Maybe, as the people he has led for the last 40 years prepares to enter the land, Moses just needs to share a final thought, one last time.

In his parting words, Moses says to the Israelites, “Remember the days of old; think about the years of the past generations. Ask your father and he will tell you, your elders, and they will explain to you” (Deuteronomy 32:7). Inspired by a teaching of the late professor Gershom Scholem in his work “The Messianic Idea in Judaism,” Rabbi Marc Angel suggests that Moses is leaving behind an important three-fold message to the Israelites (Rabbi Marc Angel, “Angel for Shabbat”). First, we should always be mindful of finding stability in a time of change. How do we do that? By conserving the sacred rituals and traditions that have been a part of our faith for generations. The Torah, God’s great gift to the Hebrew people, can serve as our guide and our rock no matter what changes we might face in life.

Second, we should never be afraid to go back to something that worked, even if it was long ago. Even during times of transition, we should not be afraid to “go back to the basics.” Sometimes what’s tried and true is easier than reinventing the wheel. And finally, it’s also a good thing to imagine what better can look like. Whether it’s a messianic ideal or taking small steps toward improving our lives, we must never give up on trying to create something that makes our present and even our future more sacred and meaningful.

What I love about Rabbi Angel’s interpretation is that, in a fragile moment filled with emotion and teetering between life and death, Moses shares his “one last time.” “Remember the days of old…” by protecting your tradition so that it may ground you and guide you in all that you do. “Ask your father:” in times when things don’t always feel hopeful, draw inspiration from the prophetic teachings of those who came before you. And remember that “your elders” in each generation can guide you to creating a better future. As we enter a new year and as we prepare to complete reading the Torah only to begin again, let us heed Moses’ blessing “one last time.”

I imagine Moses saying it this way: “My dear children of Israel, even though I won’t be there to guide you on your next journey, may you always remain steadfast to the wisdom of the Torah. And may you be guided by the leaders of the past and present so that you can bring a new light and restored hope to the world for future generations to come.”

As we finish Sefer Devarim (Book of Deuteronomy), we recite:

Chazak! Chazak! Venischazaik!

(Be strong! Be strong! And may we be strengthened!)

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:

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:

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.
