Publications Periodicals Havurah

Havurah

Havurah comes from the Hebrew word "haver" which means "friend." Havurah usually describes a community of friends who gather together to discuss their common interests and concerns. Jewish believers in Jesus face unique challenges and questions and this publication is one way of addressing them.

How do I integrate my ethnic heritage into my faith in Jesus? How can I best relate to family members who do not share my faith? How can I handle the sentiment of many other Jews that by believing in Jesus, I'm being a traitor to my people?

If these are your questions, then Havurah is for you. Havurah appears four times a year. You can get Havurah in the mail or subscribe to the RSS feed.

The Suffering of Jesus and the Suffering of Israel A Reflection on Isaiah 53

Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him; he has put him to grief; when his soul makes an offering for guilt, he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days; the will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand. Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities. (Isaiah 53:10-11)
