Tishuvah Israel, Hebrew Roots Fellowship
Sacramento, California

If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. -- 2 Chronicles 7:14

Welcome, truth-seekers! 

YHWH has provided a great opportunity to assemble every week on Shabbat and on Holy Days at a amazing facility in Sacramento!

Having this weekly group Torah study with all of you is always such a blessing as we congregate to discuss YHWH's precious word with those who are serious about their calling and dedicated to following in our Master Yeshua's footsteps.

We hope you can be at our weekly Shabbat meetings.
Please bring food and drinks to share for dinner.
You may also bring your own lunch.

We have no one human leader.  Our Master is Yeshua, our King and High Priest, serving, on our behalf, before our Father YHWH.  We are all brothers and sisters in the faith and need one another.  Each of us holds an important place in Messiah's congregation (kahal) so, we hope you'll want to participate in our community of Believers in and around the Sacramento area!

Hebrews 10:

24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,
25 not giving up meeting together (as some are in the habit of doing) but encouraging one another — and all the more as you see the day approaching.

HALLELUYAH!!  All glory to our Loving Father who hears our cries and provides our needs!

Psalms 22:22-23

I will proclaim Your Name to my kinsmen; right there in the assembly I will praise You: "You who fear YHWH, praise Him!  All descendants of Ya`akov, glorify Him!  All descendants of Yisra'el, stand in awe of Him!"

Proverbs 2: (HNV)

1 My son, if you will receive my words, And store up my mitzvot within you;
2 So as to turn your ear to wisdom, And apply your heart to understanding;
3 Yes, if you call out for discernment, And lift up your voice for understanding;
4 If you seek her as silver, And search for her as for hidden treasures:
5 Then you will understand the fear of the LORD, And find the knowledge of God.
6 For the LORD gives wisdom.  Out of his mouth comes knowledge and understanding.
7 He lays up sound wisdom for the upright.  He is a shield to those who walk in integrity;
8 That he may guard the paths of justice, And preserve the way of his holy ones.
9 Then you will understand righteousness and justice, Equity and every good path.
10 For wisdom will enter into your heart.  Knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.
11 Discretion will watch over you.  Understanding will keep you.

Psalms 119: (KJV)

1 Blessed [are] the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.
2 Blessed [are] they that keep his testimonies, [and that] seek him with the whole heart.
3 They also do no iniquity: they walk in his ways.
4 Thou hast commanded [us] to keep thy precepts diligently.
5 O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!
6 Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments.
7 I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.
8 I will keep thy statutes: O forsake me not utterly.
9 Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed [thereto] according to thy word.
10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
12 Blessed [art] thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.
13 With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.
14 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as [much as] in all riches.
15 I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.
16 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word.
17 Deal bountifully with thy servant, [that] I may live, and keep thy word.
18 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.
19 I [am] a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.
