2011 Year-End Contributions Receipts

We would sincerely like to thank you for your financial contributions to Kehilat Sar Shalom in 2011. If you would like to receive a tax receipt for your 2011 contributions, and have not already picked yours up at the congregation, please complete the following form and we will send it to you. Note that there are two options for delivery.

US Mail – If you would like your receipt send as a hard copy in the mail, we will get that right out to you. We ask that you please allow up to 2 weeks to receive your receipt. Kehilat Sar Shalom, however, can make no guarantee of delivery or time frame.

E-mail – Obviously, this is the quicker way to receive your document. Some people are sensitive about certain information traveling through the internet. Your receipt will contain your name, address, and financial contributions for 2011. It will NOT contain any personal account, banking or PayPal account information.

We hope that you will continue to support Kehilat Sar Shalom, regardless of which church or congregation you call home. You can make a donation right now by clicking the button to the right. There are some who have chosen to use the Bill Pay feature of their bank to send monthly tithes and offerings. And of course, we would love to see you at services each Shabbat.

“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the LORD of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.” Malachi 3:10

May the Lord indeed open the windows of heaven for you this year.

We’re Moving!

Rosh Hashanah or Yom Teruah?

Q: I noticed that your congregation observes “Rosh Hashannah.” In Lev. 23, I see that God calls this date “Yom T’ruah.” Why the one and not the other?

A: This festival has a number of different names. It is called Yom ha Din, the Day of Judgment. It is called Yom ha Zikkaron, the Day of Remembrance. It is called Rosh Hashanah, the Head of the Year. And it is called Yom Teruah.

     The Jewish community, as a whole, refers to this day by the name Rosh Hashanah. Because we invite and pray for the Jewish community to come to our services, we use the name with which they are most familiar. During the service, however, the message contains a reminder that the Biblical name of the holiday that is being celebrated is, in fact, Yom Teruah, and the name Rosh Hashanah doesn’t appear anywhere in the Scripture.      Your question seems to imply that there may be two different holidays, though I don’t think that was your intention. There are simply different names for the same holiday. And there are many holidays that have that same situation, especially when you consider the English equivalents. For example, Shavuot vs. the Feast of Weeks vs. Pentecost. Sukkot vs. the Feast of Booths vs. the Feast of Tabernacles. The different names refer to the same day, though are understood differently by different groups. So it really depends on to whom you are speaking.      Therefore, we have chosen to relate to the Jewish community. The Christian community, by and large, wouldn’t know what Yom Teruah is anyway, so using that name would not tell anyone that we are celebrating a Biblical holiday, anyway. However, most people recognize the name Rosh Hashanah. So people come to a Rosh Hashanah service, and they learn the true Biblical name and understanding.

Yeshua: Divine, Diety or Dud?

Q: Is Yeshua diety?

A: Yes, Yeshua is deity.

Matthew 1:18b After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit.      He was born of the Ruach Ha Kodesh, and therefore must be fully God.      Twice in the account of Matthew we read of God the Father speaking of Yeshua and saying, “This is my Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” There is no place else in Scripture where anyone is referred to by God as His beloved son.      Additionally, there is only one entity who can forgive us our sins. That is God. That is the Hebraic understanding throughout the Tanakh as well. That’s nothing new. In Mark 2:6-7, we even see that it was the understanding during Yeshua’s time. “And some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts, ‘Why does this Man speak blasphemies like this? Who can forgive sins but God alone?'” And yet, in the story of the paralytic, which is told in Matthew 9, Mark 2, and Luke 5, it is perfectly clear that Yeshua had the ability to forgive sins. The account from Matthew 9:2-6 reads, “Then behold, they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, ‘Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you.’ And at once some of the scribes said within themselves, ‘This Man blasphemes!’ But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, ‘Why do you think evil in your hearts? For which is easier, to say, “Your sins are forgiven you,” or to say, “Arise and walk”? But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins’–then He said to the paralytic, ‘Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.'”      The only way this could be possible is if Yeshua were, Himself, God.
