So in the first parts, I’ve explained how the buildings used by Messianic Jews in Israel can be quite different just as much as traditional Christianity and traditional Judaism.
So is a building where they meet known as a church or a synagogue?
I’ve heard my Israeli Messianic believer friends use either occasionally, but actually, they are more likely to refer to a place as a ‘congregation’ in English or a Kehilat (קהילת) in Hebrew.
In fact, the main news site for believers in Jesus/Yeshua in Israel is called Kehilat News that gives English and Hebrew announcements of what’s happening in the land.
This is a great go-to site for the Messianic community for teaching, worship concerts, events and more.
