Welcome

Welcome to the UNJS. The Union of Nazarene Jewish Synagogues is now providing this site as a common focal point for community leaders to share ideas across the community on an international basis. Often, the drash of a local rabbi is locked away in a local community. This forum gives opportunity to bring those teachings to a larger base. Also, this forum helps pull the community together.

The Sages have said:

What is the cause of the mourning (Zechariah 12:10)? It is well according to him who explains that the cause is the slaying of Messiah, the son of Joseph, as it is written, 'And they shall look upon me whom they have pierced; and they shall mourn for him as one mourneth for his only son.'
