"Don't think that I have come to abolish the Torah or the Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to complete."  Matthew 5:17

Kehilah Portland


A Messianic Jewish Synagogue

"Sh'ma, Yisra'el! Adonai Eloheinu, Adonai echad \cf2\i [Hear, Isra'el! Adonai our God, Adonai is one] and you are to love Adonai your God with all your heart, all your being and all your resources. These words, which I am ordering you today, are to be on your heart; and you are to teach them carefully to your children. You are to talk about them when you sit at home, when you are traveling on the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them on your hand as a sign, put them at the front of a headband around your forehead, and write them on the door-frames of your house and on your gates." Deuteronomy 6:4 - 9
Vision of Kehilah Portland

Kehilah Portland is a Messianic Jewish Synagogue with the purpose to proclaim the redemptive power and purpose of God through His servant, our Messiah Yeshua (Jesus).  This proclamation is to all people, with the express desire to connect them with the God of Israel through prayer, worship and community. 

To equip people to serve, to grow to maturity and to inspire believers everywhere to recognize the irrevocable calling of God upon the Jewish people, encouraging the nations (Gentiles) to fulfill their biblical mandate to come alongside Israel as co-heirs to the covenants of promise.

Genesis 12:1 – 3; Isaiah 49:5 - 6, 49:22 – 23; Romans 11; Romans 16:25 – 27; Ephesians 2:11 – 22



Kehilah Portland, (The Congregation at Portland) a Messianic Jewish Synagogue is a manifestation of God’s present day regeneration and restoring work in the House of Israel.

Kehilah Portland is a faith community where Jewish people can embrace their Jewish identity and heritage as believers in King Messiah, Yeshua.

Kehilah Portland encourages non-Jewish believers in Messiah Yeshua, who desire to embrace the Jewish heritage of their faith and come along side Jewish believers to serve and express their faith in worshiping the God of Israel.



Kehilah Portland is established with the purpose of restoring the people of Israel, in the state of Maine, to their God, and ultimately to their biblical calling.  We will set forth to do this in the following manner:

  • Be committed to and grow in a lifestyle of faith called Biblical Judaism
  • Reveal first to the Jewish people of Maine, and also to the non-Jewish people of Maine the true identity and heritage of King Messiah Yeshua
  • Support Israel and the Jewish people in opposing all acts of hatred (anti-semitism) brought against them.
  • Call all people in the body of Messiah to the proper understanding of God’s covenant promises to Israel and their restoration.
