There will be no Shabbat Sukkot Service at the synagogue on September 29. Join us at Tejas!
with Messianic author and teacher Toby Janicki
Sukkot (Feast of Booths or Tabernacles) is last of three biblical pilgrimage holidays known as the Shalosh R'galim. It commemorates the forty-year period during which the children of Israel were wandering in the desert living in temporary shelters, and it is an agricultural festival that originally was considered a thanksgiving for the fruit harvest.

Simchat Torah (Rejoicing of the Torah) is a celebration of the conclusion of the annual cycle of public Torah readings, and the beginning of a new cycle. Simchat Torah is a part of the Biblical Jewish holiday of Shemini Atzeret (Eighth Day of Assembly), which follows immediately after the festival of Sukkot.
Beth Messiah was founded in 1982 by Richard Freeman and his wife Patsy with the vision of creating a space for Jewish people to find the Messiah Yeshua and remain true to their Jewish heritage. In 2017, Michael Vowell and his wife Lauren took over the mantle of senior leadership and responsibility of carrying the vision of Beth Messiah into the future. Since its inception, Beth Messiah has grown from a chavurah meeting in a living room to a messianic synagogue with more than 400 people in attendance each week and an online viewership in the thousands. If you are ever in Houston, Texas we would be delighted to have you join us for services on Saturday mornings starting at 10AM.
