The Jewish Scriptures (The Torah, The Prophets, and The Writings, which make up the Tanakh or the Jewish Bible) paint a very clear picture of who the Mashiach (Messiah) will be when He eventually comes to the nation of Israel. In fact, there are over 300 prophecies in the Hebrew Scriptures, which detail many facts about this coming Messiah/king. Here is just a sampling (and remember, all these verses come from the Jewish Bible): Messiah was to be born at Bethlehem: Micah 5:2. Messiah would be from the tribe of Judah: Genesis 49:10. Messiah would present himself by riding on an donkey: Zechariah 9:9. Messiah would be tortured to death: Psalm 22. Messiah would arrive before the destruction of the Second Temple: Daniel 9:24-27. Messiah's life would match a particular description, including suffering, silence at his arrest and trial, death and burial in a rich man's tomb, and resurrection: Isaiah 52:13-53:12. The prophecy is remarkably specific. In detail as to lineage, birthplace, time and lifestyle, Yeshua matched the Messianic expectations of the Hebrew Scriptures. The record of this fulfillment is to be found in the pages of the New Testament. As you review the more extensive list of Jewish Messianic prophecies, allow G-d to speak to your heart and your mind as you seek HIS truth. Interestingly, the Jewish Scriptures paint seemingly two different pictures about the Messiah to come. For one, they talk about the Messiah who will come as the reigning King, who will usher in a period of unprecedented peace on earth. But many verses talk about the Mashiach who will be a suffering servant, who will suffer and die for the sins of the people. For many hundreds of years the rabbis believed that there would be two Messiahs, the King Mashiach ben David, and the suffering servant Mashiach ben Joseph. The rabbis, unfortunately, were not able to see that one Messiah would accomplish both missions. Jewish prophecy was indeed fulfilled in the Jewish Messiah. Yeshua came to the "lost sheep of the House of Israel" 2000 years ago. He came as Isaiah chapter 53 so clearly states, to die and "suffer" for the sins of the Jewish people. He came to the nation of Israel, but was rejected. If the Jews would have accepted His "once for all" (Hebrews 10:10) atonement for sins, Yeshua would have ushered in the Kingdom of Heaven at that point in history. But the Jews did not recognize Him. Even though they had the Word of G-d in their own Hebrew Scriptures, and more than 300 descriptions of who He would be when He comes, they missed Him. As a result, the Good News of God's Kingdom went forth to the Gentile world, and for 2000 years now both Jew and Gentile have come together in Mashiach, looking forward to His soon return as reigning King, just as the rabbis have always expected. A lot of the Jews rejected Yeshua when He came, but large of the number of believing Jews.They received Yeshua as their Lord, and Savior, and Mashiach. They have been blessed with "new life" in Him, and they are looking forward to see Him face to face in G-d's heavenly Kingdom. This is a lot to digest, but if you are asking this question, it is G-d’s Spirit (the Ruach HaKodesh) who has drawn you to this information. I pray that you will continue your examination of the evidences of who Yeshua really is and His claims to be the Jewish Messiah in fulfillment of Hebrew prophecy. Remember the words of Yeshua, "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20). Perhaps Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah, is standing at the door of your heart right now! Consider Him! Open the door and allow Him to come into you! G-d, I know that I am a sinner. I know that I deserve the consequences of my sin. However, I am trusting in Yeshua as my Savior. I believe that His death and resurrection provided for my forgiveness. I trust in Yeshua and Yeshua alone as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you Lord, for saving me and forgiving me! Amen!"

WHO IS THE JEWISH MESSIAH? The tanakh(the Jewish scriptures) foretold about the promised Messiah Micah 5:2 foretold that Bethlehem Judah would be the birthplace of the Messiah.“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Though you are little among the thousands of Judah, Yet out of you shall come forth to Me The One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, From everlasting.”Micah 5:2. Isaiah 53:5 foretold that the Messiah would suffer, bore our sins and died. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:5 psalms 16:10 foretold The Messiah would rose from dead.For you will not leave my soul among the dead or allow your holy one to rot in the grave.psalms 16:10 THE FULFILLMENT OF THE MESSIAH’S BIRTH, THE MESSIAH’S DEATH AND THE MESSIAH’S RESURRECTION The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! Luke 2:11. Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the cross, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.1 Peter 2:24 He is not here; for He is risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. Matthew 28:6 WHAT WAS THE PURPOSE THAT HE COME INTO EARTH? God loves us and wants us to have a personal relationship with Him,but there was a problem. Problem was sin(bad things which is liying cheating and stealing.) According to God's Word, sin is what separates us from God.But your iniquities have separated you from your God Isaiah 59:2. For the wages of sin is death Romans 6:23. Yeshua died on the cross for our sins, so that we could be in relationship with The God of Israel. God is the one who made it possible for us to have a relationship with Him. God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. John 3:16. Yeshua is the way to God and Yeshua the way to get into heaven. “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.John 14:6. All you have to do is ask Yeshua to come into your heart. Dear Lord Yeshua, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for Your forgiveness. ... I turn from my sins and invite You to come into my heart. I want to trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. In Yeshua' Name amen. To say that Yeshua is not the Messiah is to call Yeshua a liar. It would be the same as someone telling you that Moses was a liar.If Yeshua is the Messiah, are you willing pay a price to follow him? To follow the Messiah is the most Jewish thing anyone can do. If you become a believer in the Messiah, You will become more Jewish like before.

Good Morning, I am moving to Dallas this summer and have narrowed down the buildings I am looking to four. They are all within walking distance of Emanu-El. Can you please recommend one? Do any of the other congregants live there? Do you have any input? 1. Bandera at Preston Hollow, 6848 Bandera Ave 2. Renaissance at Preston Hollow, 8600 Thackery 3. Tonti Lakeside, 7777 Glen American 4. The Preston, 7775 Firefall Way
Hello Temple Emanu-El Members. This summer I plan on moving from Tampa, Florida to Dallas on my own. I grew up in New York and when an opportunity came up about three years ago, I moved down to Tampa, Florida. While Florida is the south, compared to New York, I have not found it to be as warm and hospitable as I had hoped. It is really hard to meet people down here. Even one the social directors at the JCC had to admit that it is really hard to meet someone locally. Perhaps because people go back and forth between NY and FL so often, but who knows. I have met many people from Dallas and Texas in general and they are all the warmest, kindest people you would ever want to know. They would give you the shirt off their back and fix you a plate at the same time. :) Now that I am in my early 40s, bouncing around has lost its appeal and the idea of growing roots, making strong connections and having a a family have way more importance to them. New York isn't a great place to go back to right now. Plano, Addison and McKinney sound amazing but as a transplant, I am going to need some help. and a bunch of people to lean on at first. I am hoping to be sucked into a true Southern Community where I can finally feel connected to something. Does someone who has not been all that social in his life stand a chance?
Really wonderful & heartwarming Shabbat Service & Dinner in honor of retiring Executive Director, Rick Rosenberg tonight. Good luck and enjoy your retirement Rick!

In 1918, the Jewish community of Barcelona was re-established, 426 years after the Expulsion of 1492. Today, Victor Sorrenssen, a 36-year old Barcelonian and Jewish leader, described today’s Jewish community and growing cultural life here.

Tours included a visit to the restored medieval city of Girona, and to Besalu, home of Europe’s best preserved medieval mikvah. Tonight we are going to a synagogue for Shabbat. “We want to define our own narrative,” Victor said. Temple Emanu-El is glad to share in that story. Shabbat Shalom!

The motif for Granada, not surprisingly, is the magnificent tiles of Alhambra, with their vivid colors and interlocking patterns. So too is the Sephardic Jewish culture we’ve been learning about: three religions coexisting on the Iberian Peninsula, beautiful and fragile at the same time. While we saw no signs of a preserved Jewish past, we did study the poetry of Shmuel Hanagid, the 11th century intellectual and military leader.

We have arrived in Barcelona. How exciting it was to go to a synagogue discovered in 1996 on a site where Jews had been praying since Roman times!

General information

Temple Emanu-El is a vibrant Reform Jewish community that strives to be a place of sacred encounter. It is a place where learning, prayer and deeds change people’s understanding of themselves, of their world and their responsibilities in it. We affirm the power of Jewish learning to create and deepen Jewish identity and commitment. Life-long Jewish learning—from childhood through adulthood—brings Jewish values to our daily lives, nurtures spiritual experiences, and both anchors and challenges us to reach out to a world in need. We celebrate the potential of prayer to help us reach out to God, root ourselves in community, and affirm the most deeply held values of our people and our faith. Jewish observance at home and at Temple nurtures and inspires both faith and deed. We see the creation of enriching Jewish homes as a fundamental obligation of synagogue life. At Temple Emanu-El, the creation of a vibrant and meaningful community is both an enduring value and an ongoing endeavor. For us, community means a sense of warm welcome, meaningful relationships, and mutual responsibility. We affirm a sense of both valued boundaries and a great respect for diversity. We celebrate our identity as a multi-generational community. We envision the relationship between congregants, rabbis and staff as a partnership based upon mutual respect, shared Jewish commitment, and ongoing Jewish growth. That relationship is manifest in a governance structure which is democratic and reflects the diversity of our congregation. We emphasize the ethical ideals of social justice at the core of the Jewish tradition. This covenantal obligation frames our actions in terms of our relationship to God and to Jewish tradition. It is Temple Emanu-El’s obligation to engage in the ongoing task of world repair. We value being an integral part of and contributor to the total Dallas community. As Reform Jews, we exist in vital relationship to our own movement and to the Jewish people as a whole. We understand that a fundamental connection exists between Temple Emanu-El and the Jews in Israel and the rest of the world, and we acknowledge our responsibility in promoting the concept of pluralism in the Jewish world. -- Core Values Statement approved by the Temple Emanu-El Board of Trustees on April 10, 2000
