Elul is a charitable time, the time of special opportunities to show people love. On these days it’s important to meet the financial needs our loved ones’ (and that of others). According to Hebrew tradition: when we are concerned with our material status – we’re being material, but when we focus our attention on the needs of other people – it’s the manifestation of our spirituality.

Our Congregation from ouside perspective.

Members of the Kyiv Jewish Messianic Community dance the Hora in Kyiv on June 5, 2015. Jews have lived in Ukraine since the eighth century, and before World War II comprised one of the country’s largest minorities. However, the concert organizers are double minorities: Messianic Jews, who believe Jesus Christ is the Messiah, yet also identify as Jews and observe Jewish holidays.

Elul is the 12th month of Biblical calendar that lasts for 29 days and corresponds to August-September of the Gregorian calendar. The name of the month originates from Arameic “ve-elilu” – which means “to probe, contemplate, or analyze”. This biblical month precedes the fall biblical feasts. The first of these feasts is Rosh ha Shana (Jewish New Year, that is known in the Scripture as Yom Troah – or remembrance of the trumpet sound), when according to the tradition, God judges all He’s created.

In Jewish Messianic congregations, it is customary to praise God through dance. It is joyful and can be fast or other times, more quiet and flowing; sometimes in round dances with a group, or as part of personal worship, with flags and shofars. It is quite normal for the Messianic believer to praise the Lord, rejoice, sing and dance before Him. But what is the essence and meaning of dancing for God? Is it just Jewish tradition or is this a way of praising God that is common for believers of all denominations and confessions?

We believe Israel is the center, the focal point— geographically, politically and spiritually—of God's master plan for eternity. Without an understanding of God's plan for Israel, one will not be able to understand God's plan for the world.
