What Shorashim?

Shorashim means roots in Hebrew. We are a Messianic community with people from Finland and also with believers from other nations. We celebrate the biblical holidays and the shabbat, gathering together on Erev Shabbat (Friday evenings) with a biblically kosher potluck meal starting at 18:00 hours.

What Messianic?

We believe that Yeshua is HaMashiach (Jesus is the Messiah), the Goel (Redeemer) who came to redeem Israel and also to become the Saviour for all nations. Just as you can read it in the Brit Hadasha (New Testament), we are

"...not ashamed of the Good News, since it is God’s powerful means of bringing salvation to everyone who keeps on trusting, to the Jew especially, but equally to the Gentile."  (Romans 1:16 - CJB, Complete Jewish Bible) 


What Fridays?

According to the Bible, the Shabbat is the holy day that starts on Friday evening.  Adonai Himself blessed the shabbat and sanctified it:

"On the seventh day God was  finished with His work which he had made, so He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had made. God blessed the seventh day and separated it as holy..." (Genesis 2:2,3 - CJB


If you happen to be in town on Friday evenings, you are more than welcome to fellowship with us. We usually have an international group of people present, our meeting starts at 18:00 hours.
