We are now meeting in person at the Messianic Center in Toronto
and on Zoom every Shabbat at 11am EST
Shalom Dear Family & Friends
I pray that you are all doing well and continually living in the blessings of the Lord!
Because of the current situation related to the Coronavirus we are having to suspend our regular Wednesday meetings and Shabbat morning services at least until the end of March.
We are so thankful for your prayers and support. And we are also thankful that our God never changes and that His Word is established forever.
The following words from Psalm 91 are just as true and valid as they always were:
1 He who dwells in the shelter of Elyon,
will abide in the shadow of Shaddai.
2 I will say of Adonai,
“He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.
3 For He will rescue you from the hunter’s trap
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with His feathers,
and under His wings you will find refuge.
His faithfulness is body armor and shield.
We pray that the God the Father and our Lord Yeshua the Messiah will protect you and keep you all in health.
‘Adonai bless you and keep you!
Adonai make His face to shine on you and be gracious to you!
Adonai turn His face toward you and grant you shalom!’
- Numbers 6:24-26

Who we are...
Rosh Pinah is a faith based community serving both Jewish and non-Jewish people who seek to worship the God of Israel. We teach the whole Word of God and it’s expression in our lives, fully centered on the Jewish Messiah Yeshua
“...through Him we both have access to the Father by the same Ruach. So then you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but you are fellow citizens with God’s people and members of God’s household. You have been built on the foundation made up of the emissaries and prophets, with Messiah Yeshua Himself being the cornerstone (Rosh Pinah in Hebrew)” -Ephesians 2:18-20
Join us at 11AM every Saturday for a friendly and Spirit-filled service as we observe and celebrate the first of the Appointed times of the Lord - Shabbat
“Behold how good and pleasant it is when brothers and sisters dwell together in unity!”
At Rosh Pinah we desire to blend some of the ancient traditions and blessings of Israel with a contemporary and welcoming style of fellowship. Our worship includes some traditional Jewish liturgy as well as a mixture of Messianic Jewish and contemporary praise songs.
"So the heavens and the earth were completed along with their entire array. God completed—on the seventh day—His work that He made, and He ceased—on the seventh day—from all His work that He made. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, for on it He ceased from all His work that God created for the purpose of preparing."
- Gen 2:1-3
"Yeshua returned in the power of the Ruach to the Galilee, and news about Him went out through all the surrounding region. He taught in their synagogues, and everyone was praising Him. And He came to Natzeret, where He had been raised. As was His custom, He went into the synagogue on Shabbat,"
- Luke 4:14-16
Join us every Wednesday evening at 6:30 ion zoom for our weekly Torah study and a time of prayer and intercession. If you would like to join our Torah Study please email us and we will gladly send you the link.
“Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things form Your Torah.” (Psalm 119:118)
One of the most amazing discoveries, which can be made, is that the ancient texts of the
bible really do contain messages for you and I and the world we live in today!
"The whole megillah!"
The first five books of the bible known collectively as the Torah are truly the foundation
of the rest of the writings of the bible. As such we meet weekly to have a study and
discussion of the weekly parsha or Torah reading. As the psalmist wrote: “the entrance of
your word gives light”(Psalm 119:130) Come and join us as we enter into the words of
Torah and discover their centrality to the Good News of Messiah.
When Yeshua was asked what the greatest of all of the commandments in the Torah was He replied by quoting the Shema of Deuteronomy 6, which says, “Hear O Israel Adonai Your God, Adonai is One.” In this ancient declaration of faith of Israel God goes on to tell the Israelites to teach the Torah (literally the instructions) to their children. At Rosh Pinah we provide a safe and fun place where children can come and learn all of the wonderful stories of the bible in their original context. By the way, do you know of any other Messianic fellowship that has a bowling alley?
THE APPOINTED TIMES
It is fascinating to discover that the creation and placement of the sun, moon and stars, is
very much connected to God’s calendar of appointed times. Genesis 1:14 reads: Then God
said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night;
and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years…The word translated as
seasons is actually the Hebrew word mo’adim which later is used to describe the
appointed times of the Lord.
At Rosh Pinah we know that there is a tremendous blessing in tuning into the timings of
the Lord as described in the text of the bible. There is a great deal of significance to be
found in these appointed times for both the Jewish people and also for all those from the
nations who want to worship God in Spirit and in truth.
One of the ways that we do this is to come together on Erev Shabbat to welcome and
celebrate the first of all of the appointed times – the Sabbath.
We also observe and celebrate together the other appointed times yearly. Such as Pesach
– Passover, Shavuot, Sukkot etc.
