Omer day 29
Tonight is Peach Sheni.
It was for those in the days of the Temple
who found themselves ritually impure at the time of the
Hashem gave us a second chance to fulfill the Passover
by having a seder a month later.
In the Brit Chadasha, we see that two Rabbis
Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea were in contact
with a corpse, Yeshua.
They placed him in the tomb.
The scriptures point to the fact that they both
were not able to be part of the Seder,
but would have a second chance a month later.
But the joy...the second Passover Seder (Pesach Sheni)
would be a celebration of Yeshua
and His resurrection.
For us, it is another reason to celebrate His resurrection,
and the hope of our own resurrection in the future.
We want to celebrate one of our fine ladies
at Temple Aviv Judea.....

As you know we have a building to pay up.
Once it is ours.....
we can do even more for the Lord.
There are TWO ways to help TAJ financially above and beyond
what you all give...
1) Remember us in your will. This is the last thing you
will do on earth for HaShem. Let us be faithful
stewards of our money even when we no longer are here.
2) If you are thinking of selling or buying a home, PLEASE
consider using our sister and realtor Taroub (Ruby) Shehadi.
She has helped many in this congregation and others.
She was used by the Lord to obtain our building, that we
are so grateful to the Lord.
She is a believer who will tithe her earnings on the sale
and give it to TAJ.

Christine, his wife, who makes beautiful jewelry and other pieces of Judaica.

giving her testimony with music.
LIFE Pacific College - Simonson Center (in the chapel)
1100 W. Covina Blvd, San Dimas, CA 91773
(corner of Covina Blvd and S. Lone Hill Avenue)
You are cordially invited to a joyous night of fellowship with Messianic Jews and Arab Christians...all are welcome.
Only through Messiah Yeshua can Jews and Arabs come together to worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
We will also be taking up an offering the next two weeks to donate to Messianic Jewish and Arabic Christian ministries in the Land of Israel.
Last year the Fellowship donated 5000 dollars to divide between them.
1. Hope for Israel (Moran Rosenblit) to support Joseph Haddad’s ministry to Lebanese Arabs, and Jews in Nahariya, Israel;
2. Hope for Ishmael (Taysir Abu-Saada) to support the Little Hearts Preschool in Jerusalem;
3. Succat Hallel’s Elav Youth / Young Adult Conferences. It sounds like this year that they will have multiple one evening meetings around Israel (versus just one summer conference like 2015) for believing Jewish, Arab, and other youth in Israel.
May you all have a blessed week.....
Rabbi Corey and his bride, Hilary
