Join

The Union of Nazarene Jewish Synagogues invites all congregations which share our vision to join with us. There are three levels of membership:

  • Senior Level - Synagogue with ten or more members with full structure and services.
  • Junior Level - Congregation with ten or more members but not quite a synagogue.
  • Associate Level - A Ministry or A Chavurah with from three to nine members.

The list of affiliates is not public due to historical persecution.  If you want to be put into contact with an existing group or for more information on UNJS membership you may contact us at:

The Sages have said:

In the Code of Jewish Law1 it is written that a Torah scroll should be held in one's right arm (and rested on the right shoulder). This applies even if the one holding the Torah is left-handed. There are two verses that allude to this idea:1) "From His right hand was a fiery Law for them" -- Deuteronomy 33:2. The Torah was given from G‑d's right hand, as it were, and we therefore hold it in our right hand, too.2) "And His right hand will embrace me" -- Song of Songs 2:6. G‑d embraces us with His right hand, and we, in turn, embrace His holy Torah with our right hand.
