Temple New Jerusalem (TNJ) is a messianic synagogue serving the Tampa Bay/ Clearwater/ St. Petersburg, FL. area. We are a community where Jew and Gentile enjoy worshiping together. TNJ is a congregation which believes that Yeshua (Jesus) is the promised Messiah of Israel, and Savior of the world. Located at 1190 East Lake Rd. Tarpon Springs, FL 34688.
At TNJ we honor both traditionally Jewish and contemporary worship. We use Davidic dance, Hebraic prayers from the traditional siddur, celebratory Torah services, and praise music that is characteristic of the worldwide messianic Jewish movement. No one is required to join in, and we never put people on the spot. You can come as you are, dress as you feel comfortable, watch and observe, or enter into the worship. It's all up to you. Whether you are Jewish, non-Jewish, or an interfaith couple or family, we strive to make you feel welcome, without pushing. We let you decide for yourself if TNJ might be the place for you and your family. A youth program is provided at every service for kids of all ages.
We host special services for high holidays Passover Seder, Hanukkah and Purim. We also honor the national holidays of the State of Israel. God's appointed festivals assist us in remembering and understanding all that Yeshua has done for us.
As the Rabbi, I teach that all people need to receive atonement for sin, and that the Messiah is the way to receive it. I believe that it is important to bless the nation of Israel, and that all who bless Israel will be blessed by God. I seek fresh revelation from the Lord to impart the scriptural truths of life which Yeshua taught, and to harmonize the word of God coming from both the old and new testament. The teachings are designed to make you contemplate Life's deeper and pressing issues. My goal is to inspire, disciple, and cause you to grow and change in the Lord by the power of the "Ruakh" or "Spirit" of God.
We invite you to come to a Shabbat service at our synagogue. I would love the opportunity to meet you and share with you.
