Who We Are
Beit Israel was started in 2002, at that time we were located in Escatawpa, MS. We met in Mississippi until Hurricane Katrina, after which we were forced to move to the Mobile, Alabama area and since that time we have felt lead to stay in Alabama. In 2011 we moved to our permanent location in Bayou La Batre, AL. We are a Messianic Jewish synagogue and are fully dedicated to bringing the Message of Messiah to our Jewish people and also to the Nations.
In our services you will experience a blend of traditional Jewish liturgy with modern Messianic worship. The Bible –– consisting of both the Tanakh (Hebrew Scriptures) and the Brit Chadashah (New Covenant Writings) –– is a central focus of our services, our lives, and our community.
We strive to be a community centered congregation where everyone is considered mishpocha (family). Beit Israel is a community of both Jews and Gentiles who worship the One True God of Israel, are washed clean by the cleansing Blood of Yeshua (Jesus) the promised Mashiach (Messiah) of Israel, and are transformed by the power of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit).
Beit Israel is a member of the International Alliance of Messianic Congregations and Synagogues (IAMCS- www.iamcs.org) and associated with the Messianic Jewish Alliance of America (MJAA- www.mjaa.org) and we support the work of the Young Messianic Jewish Alliance (YMJA- www.ymja.org).
Beit Israel meets on Saturday mornings at 11:00am, with a time to ask questions with the Rabbi starting at 10:15am. We are located at 8340 E Rabby Street in Bayou La Batre, Alabama.
