Hello, I’m interested in learning more about Hebrew Catholics. I am a Messianic Jew married to a secular Jew. I came across the testimonies of David Moss and Mark and Sue Neugebauer online and was very intrigued. I also greatly admire St. Edith Stein. What’s a good book to start with? Thanks! Shalom.

I am glad you found us. We recently established these forums on our website, but most people are still engaging in discussions on our Facebook page.
Regarding testimonies online, you can find a number of them in the video archive of the “Journey Home,” a program on the EWTN network. Roy Schoeman has a number of videos on Youtube, which I believe you would find interesting. His book, “Salvation is From the Jews,” is a comprehensive overview of salvation history focused on the role of the Jewish people.
Another book by Elias Friedman OCD, the founder of the Association of Hebrew Catholics (AHC), is entitled “Jewish Identity.” This book lays out the theological foundations of the AHC.
There is a 3 volume set with the overall title “The Mystery of Israel and the Church.” In this set, Dr. Larry Feingold reviews The books bring out the wonderful role of the People Israel in salvation history and the deep ties between the People Israel and the Church.
All of these books, and much more, are available in our webstore. If you go to the store (click on the menu item “Store” in the blue ribbon above), you can enter titles and other terms in the search field. You can also choose one of the categories in the drop down list below the search field. In the description for each book, there is often a table of contents to indicate the contents of the book.
There are also a number of books and videos by Brant Pitre. In his presentations, he attempts to show what the Jewish people meant by various beliefs and practices, revealed in Scripture, at the time of Yeshua and the apostles. One particularly good book is “Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist.”
Finally, there is an excellent book, “Second Exodus,” by Martin Barrack. Marty explains the Catholic faith from his Jewish perspective.
Browse through our store to get a sense of what is available. But the books above might be a good starting point.
Let me know if I can be of any further help. A better way to reach me is via email:

Welcome and yes, sorry, I don’t check these forums enough. Still primarily check FB. I think David had good suggestions. I think coming from your perspective the Brant Pitre books might be a great entry point. I am a gentile who has always loved the Jewish roots of Christianity and viewed the ongoing role of the Jewish people as a critical element of salvation history. I crossed the Tiber in 2005 from the Lutheran Church. One concern I had about the Catholic Church was its troubled history with the Jewish people, but also that it seemed there was no place for a Jewish believer such as Messianic Jews (I had always felt there was something valid in Messianic Judaism despite some apparent problems). Realizing the AHC existed made my entrance easier. I actually was an “associated” supporter of AHC even before I joined myself to Rome. It was part of the journey.

Hello again I was told the AssocHebrewCatholics will end December 16th… do you recommend any other site? So I can continue learning about Hebrew Catholics and the Bible. I find it very spiritual learning religious lectures which I had no knowledge of.
