Welcome to Restorers of Zion

 

a grassroots ministry

serving the Body of Yeshua

in Israel

and the believers worldwide

from Israel

 

 

Meet a ministry where Restoration is a two-way street.

Our goal is not Fundraising, it's Serving. 

Sometimes Service requires funding, sometimes it requires different investments:  time, prayer, exercising spiritual gifts, opening the heart and home. Restorers is working in areas where lack of money is not an obstacle... and where "throwing money at the problem" would not bring restoration.

 

 

 

Meet a ministry where

we and you TOGETHER

are

the "Restorers of Zion".

We are privileged to work in partnership with other Restorers who share our vision:

NEW:

The Jewish Calendar’s “Forbidden Days”
and the Messianic Passover Challenge

The Jewish calendar is fixed in advance to prevent Passover from ever beginning on one of three “forbidden days”.
This is done by postponing the new moon for the First Month (Nisan). The rabbinic community teaches that this situation has no significance in Jewish tradition; the “forbidden days” for Pesach are only necessary in order to avoid the real “forbidden days” which apply to the Feast of Trumpets (Yom Tru’ah, also called Rosh Hashanah) at the opposite side of the year. 

Yet up until 70 CE, when the seat of rabbinic authority moved from Jerusalem to Yavne,
there was no such thing as “forbidden days” for either Yom Tru’ah or Pesach.

In this article, we present evidence that the calendar changes were part of Yavne's war on Yeshua's identity as the Messiah of Israel - and despite the denial, the prime target was Passover. The calendar postponements not only lead people to keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread on the wrong days, they also destroy some of the powerful imagery in the gospel to the Jews.

Find out how the calendar was changed, how its real goal was hidden from the Jewish people,
and what the Body of Messiah can do about it as part of our Restoration mandate.

Torah Answers for Anti-Missionaries

We issue a warm invitation to all believers, both Jewish and Gentile, who are harboring doubts (even in secret). If you have been troubled by inadequate answers to challenges from counter-missionaries, and honesty has compelled you to conclude that Yeshua cannot be the Messiah after all, or that it's wrong to call Him "G-d", this Torah-based web hub will encourage and strengthen you. We recommend that you start here for a pleasant shock.

We also issue a respectful challenge to our dati/frum Jewish brethren, to test your foundations. There are certain "givens" concerning rabbinic history, the chain of Torah transmission, and other assumptions that inform your view of Torah obedience. Regardless of your position on Yeshua, you cannot hope to merit the days of Moshiach unless you are first committed to deal only with the truth of G-d.  Enter here... if you dare.
