Bruchim HaBaim ברוכים הבאים, Welcome!
Springs Chavurah is the place for fellowship, friendship, and secrets you may have missed in Hebrew school. A place where God's word is studied and loved.
It is where "Reading Moses, Seeing Jesus" is understood as the good news teaches us:
"You study the Scriptures, because you think that in them you will find eternal life. And these very Scriptures speak about me...For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me!" - Yeshua
We meet and enjoy good food and each other’s company. Events are usually scheduled for Saturday nights with Havdalah, Drosh and Nosh and then Sunday's for "Sunday Midrash", meal, fellowship, and Torah Study.
To inspire the human heart
To promote a Messiah centered community that inspires Biblical values, life and learning.
OUR MISSION IS HIS MESSAGE!
" And the message continues with us as the good news teaches us: Go therefore and make students of all the nations, immersion (baptizing) them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” - Yeshua
Yeshua Our Lord, Our Teacher, Our Rabbi, King Messiah, Forever and ever
ישוע אדוננו מורנו ורבינו מלך המשיח לעולם ועד
Parashat Vayechi / פרשת ויחי
Vayechi: (He lived)
M’lakhim Alef (1 Kings) 2:1–12
B’rit HaChdashah: ברית החדשה
Acts 7:9–16 (specifically vv. 15–16); Ivrim (Hebrews) 11:21–22; 1 Kefa (1 Peter) 1:3–9; 2:11–17
Hazak, hazak, v’nit’chazek!
Be strong, be strong, and let us be strengthened!
As the final words are recited, the assembled call out hazak, hazak, ve-nithazek, be strong, be strong and let us be strengthened. Indeed, we say these words when completing each of the Five Books of Moses.
Most interpret these words to speak first to the individual, and then to the collective whole. Hazak is a singular term. When uttered twice it creates a sense of community. Hence, ve-nithazek – together we will gain greater strength and prevail.
“It is the nation’s schools-the Cheder, the Yeshiva, and the Beit Midrash that have been our safest stronghold throughout our long tough struggle among peoples. In times of storm and fury, we took cover behind their walls and there we sharpened the one weapon we had left – the Jewish mind.”
