Founded in 1980, Ohev Yisrael (translated as “lover of Israel” referring to Yeshua as the one who loves Israel) is a Messianic Jewish Congregation located in Newington, VA. We are comprised of members primarily from Washington, DC metropolitan area (VA, MD, and DC).
What We Believe
We believe that, according to the Tanakh and the Brit Chadasha (New Covenant), Yeshua Ha Mashiach (Jesus the Messiah) died for our sins, was buried, and rose again on the third day.
We worship the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in a style reflective of first century synagogues where followers of Yeshua from both Jewish and non-Jewish backgrounds assembled in unity.
Our worship and observances seek to fulfill Yeshua’s words for true worshipers, blending together the Torah (The Word of God) and Ruach Hakodesh (Holy Spirit).
