Building a Yeshua-centered Judaism for Israel and the Nations.
For two thousand years, anti-Jewish patterns of thought and action have created a deep divide between Yeshua, Judaism, the Jewish people, and the nations. Removing Yeshua from within Judaism has robbed the followers of Jesus and the Jewish people of shalom and blessings. This tragic separation has stalled the advancement of God’s kingdom on earth.
The path towards the Kingdom of God involves bringing Yeshua, Judaism, Jews, and Gentiles back together for the sake of the world. Tikvat David is a Messianic Jewish Synagogue that is dedicated to this process of restoration.
Here are some additional statements that express who we are and how we function:
TD is a synagogue that practices Messianic Judaism. It serves as a space where Jews can live out their covenant calling as Jews with Yeshua at the center of their Torah observance.
TD is a home for Messianic Gentiles who desire to practice Judaism - and they are valued as people who are a distinct, equal, and essential component of Messianic Judaism.
TD is part of the Atlanta Jewish community and seeks to serve with and participate in the vibrant Jewish life offered here.
TD is part of the Body of Messiah and as such we seek to build relationships with churches, Messianic congregations, and ministries in Atlanta and beyond.
