The New Jerusalem House of Prayer
Inaugural Weekend was
June 26-28, 2015
On June 26-28, in West Chicago, we met for the inaugural events of New Jerusalem, a new house of prayer for all people – Jew and Gentile, male and female, bound and free – a new identity with one common root, to be one new family of God. Our special guest was Omer Eshel, Israeli counsel from Israel. He was great!
Now our journey is underway, and it is thrilling! Join us as we create and grow together in this new house of prayer. Together we seriously study the teachings of Torah, the writings, prophets, and our common Jewish roots in the teachings of a very Jewish Jesus and His followers: the New Testament writings.
Here's what we did on our first weekend as New Jerusalem House of Prayer:
7 PM Erev Shabbat dinner (traditional Jewish Sabbath dinner) in Hebrew and English.
10 AM Christianity and Judaism: common roots - presentation by Omer Eshel.
1 PM Archaeology that illustrates the Bible - presentation by Omer Eshel.
