The Jerusalem Council

A Global Association of Orthodox Jewish Disciples of Messiah Yeshua


We are a global association of rabbis, teachers, students, lay leaders, fellow servants, and disciples of Messiah Yeshua and followers of HaDerech (The Way), who in accordance with HaShem, and each other, desire to build up each other in the areas of association, education, conversion, leadership, smicha, and justice for the Body of Messiah worldwide:

  • Association – Creating an association of fellowship, credibility, recognition, and support for various Orthodox Jewish-leaning disciples, Messianic communities, congregations, and larger associations.
  • Education – Establishment of yeshivot focused on proper Jewish education,  as well as understanding who Messiah is from the Torah.
  • Conversion – Providing guidance to potential converts looking for a halachically valid Jewish conversion.
  • Leadership – Building up of leaders in the Body of Messiah to make disciples, not just converts.
  • Smicha – Vetting and passing on of Orthodox Jewish ordination in full accordance with halacha.
  • Justice – Establishment of batei din worldwide to support growing communities with direction, leadership, and accountability.

We have come together by the Spirit of G-d from all over the world, to lay the groundwork in turning this vision into an actual reality within our lifetimes.

If these goals resonate with your heart and soul, and you believe HaShem is calling you to join us or support us, then please contact us or join our mailing list. All who are believers in Messiah Yeshua are invited to participate in this endeavor since we believe anyone with a love for HaShem and his Word, and who has a love for one’s fellow disciple of the Master, can contribute to this great work!
