      Shalom Everyone,

      I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Yered, and I am an ordained Messianic Rabbi who lives in Alaska. I have always had a profound love for Catholic and Anglican people. There is something of the liturgy that speaks to me and has echoes of the Jewish liturgy that I so love. When I was growing up, I became friends with Bishop George Niederhaur, who was, at that time, the bishop of the Cathedral of the Madeleine in Salt Lake City. I used to help prepare meals and diverse sundries on Wednesdays to pass out to those less fortunate families who were in need. What a glorious thing that was to my young mind!

      Anyway…I get sidetracked. :)

      I do look forward to getting to know all of you. May you have a blessed week.

      In His Service,

      R. Yered

      Yered,

      Thank you for the thoughtful introduction! You have a very cool background. I think what you said about your service to others should be glorious to anyone’s mind!

      I am a married family man and Jewish teacher of the Catholic Faith. Nice to meet you (sort of)!

      Is awesome your service testimony, we all must work in the God´s will together, including the tzedeká! Jesus wants us in Her service in the others. I´m glad to read you, in my city the messianic jews are only a few and dont´t have contact with others creeds or faith comunities.
      Shalom alejem in Jesus name.

      My apologies, gentlemen, for the delayed response. Thank you, kindly, for your welcoming words. I was away on an excursion with my lovely wife. We travelled across Prince William Sound to a fishing town for a fungus festival. It was delightful.

      Rabbi
      I enjoyed reading your testimony. My mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother were all Jews so the tug to be a Jew has always been a part of my existence, and a struggle at times. Defining myself as a messianic-Jew helps me to manage the matter though it isn’t always easy. At times I find myself living in both worlds simultaneously. But there is no shame in being a Jew yet much peace of mind in being a Catholic. And there you have it.
      Shalom

        Shalom, friend. Thank you for your considerate post and for sharing a bit of yourself. I understand the struggle, for sure. We shall always been protectors of both sides of the swaying bridge between two worlds. Some days, that is cause to rejoice. Other days….well, it is a challenge, to be sure. Glad to have made your acquaintance!

      Shana Tova Rabbi!

      Shalom from the Philippines, I am Br. John Zeus M. Aduan, MS from the Missionaries of Our Lady of La Salette. I have been part of AHC even years before. I am Catholic but I have this great love on the Jewish heritage of Faith. Perhaps, I might have Jewish Soul from the Kabbalistic perspective or I have a great feeling that I have a Jewish Ancestor since the surname of grandfather was “Moses”. Nice to have some sharing to you Rabbi.
