A vision to establish the institutions of yeshivot and battai din to meet the greatest needs of the believing orthodox Jewish community of disciples of Messiah Yeshua worldwide. This vision includes the creation of an Orthodox Jewish Rabbinical Yeshiva, an Orthodox Jewish Beit Din, a global Messianic Knesset, and an online communication and collaboration hub, by providing for rabbinic ordination (smicha), Jewish education, Jewish conversion (giyur), peer review, accountability, and the communication channels needed to support the body of disciples of Messiah Yeshua and all Messianic Jews worldwide.

Orthodox Conversion: A Biblical Perspective

There are several Rabbis in the Messianic movement who have high levels of smichah, but they are scattered and isolated. I believe that we need to be uniting these leaders so that they can form a Beit Din to oversee the conversion process within a believing community, so that those who are seeking conversion out of proper motives can do it without denying their faith.

Is it lawful to save the life of a Gentile on Sabbath?

Question: I was wondering if you could possibly shed some light on this: If a goy requires medical treatment on Shabbos, does the Halacha hold that: a) A Jewish doctor is obliged to treat him, b) A Jewish doctor is forbidden to treating him, or c) A Jewish doctor is permitted to treat him, but may refrain from doing so if he so chooses.
