Please check out these BEKY Books!


The BEKY Books series is designed to encourage and invite the curious to 
explore the topics for which they typically would like to have more information.
 It is a series designed to INVITE and ENCOURAGE learners with a simple
 presentation of the truth of the Scriptures.

The books are designed for middle school to high school reading levels,
 so they are appropriate for homeschoolers. Each booklet contains a glossary
 and Study Review Questions that encourage the reader to internalize the important concepts.
Booklets are around 30 printed pages, although some are a bit more. BEKY Books
 are a great addition to congregational libraries, and they are an inexpensive resource
 to welcome visitors. 

The Fall Feasts!

Soon it will be time, once again, for the Fall Feasts!  The Spring Feasts were fulfilled with Yahshua's first coming.  The Fall Feasts are yet to be fulfilled when He returns. We are following the calendar this year that added a 13th month because of the state of the barley.  We wish everyone blessings for following whatever schedule their study led them to observe this year. In our estimation, it is better to study and observe than not to study and not observe!  Thankfully, when Messiah returns, we will all be on the same calendar!
The first feast will be Trumpets and without the benefit of seeing the moon in Jerusalem, that is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 3rd.  Atonement is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 12th and Sukkot is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 17th-23, with the Last Great Day falling on Oct. 24th.

Why we are keeping Shavuot on the 12th of June

Why we are doing Shavuot on the 12th of June for those who want to know......this year is a difficult one.....but we would rather be engaged in careful study and possibly be inaccurate than just keep something that is already calculated that we had no involvement in study in. smile emoticonWhenever anyone is trying to keep Torah, that is a great thing..we respect everyone's decision to keep Passover and FOUB this year, whenever they were convicted to keep it.

Revised Passover / FOUB schedule (due to new moon sighting 4/9

The schedule is now revised until and unless we receive word of a sighting of the moon on the night of the 8th in Israel. The Foot washing and memorial emblems will now be the night of April 22nd, The Passover will be observed on the night of Saturday, April 23rd. We will meet together for the First High Day, Sunday April 24th at 1:00pm and do the observance of the wave sheaf offering. We will meet on Sat. April 30th for the Last High Day of FOUB at 1:00pm

On Saturday April 9, 2016 the new moon was sighted from Israel

New Moon of the Aviv Sighted


On Saturday April 9, 2016 the new moon was sighted from Israel. The moon was sighted:
*from Jerusalem by Nehemia Gordon at 6:46pm and seconds later by Devorah Gordon
*from Kiryat Ata by Yoel Halevi at 7:50pm
*from Poriya Ilit by Rebecca Biderman at 7:11 pm
*from Kefar Eldad by Bruce Brill and Seth Kaufman at 7:40pm.
After a flurry of post-Shabbat phone calls, we have not found anyone who succeeded in sighting the new moon from Israel on Friday April 8, 2016. Unless we hear otherwise, the moon sighted from Israel on Saturday April 9, 2016 is Chodesh Ha-Aviv, the New Moon of the Aviv, the beginning of the First Hebrew Month. Based on the Saturday April 9 sighting from Israel, Passover (Chag HaMatzot) will begin at sunset on April 23, 2016 and Shavuot will begin at sunset on Saturday June 11, 2016. Should we receive information that changes this situation we will post it at:

The photo of the new moon at the top of this message was taken by me from Jerusalem on April 9, 2016 at 7:16pm. More photos are posted on my Facebook page.
