Copied from R & S.

I wasn't sure which section would have the most traffic. I figured putting it on Jewish Book Discussions might be strange.

I love Jewish culture. I am very proud of my Christian upbringing but have always been curious about this topic.

I'd love to hear from a Messianic Jew or somebody with concrete knowledge about this subject.

Me too Shannon, because Jewish history is our history as a Christian!  I would love to hear from a Messianic Jew also!

A Messianic Jew is a Jew who believes that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Messiah.

Marsha, I realize that. I was just wanting to know what traditions that they keep. What Christian one's they may not follow. Stuff like that.

My two favorite messianic jews to listen to are Bob Fishman and Rosalind Moss.  You can find Rosalind Moss at www.householdoffaith.excerptsofinri.com.  Bob Fishman has a series on EWTN called The Family Hearth.   You can also find more at www.salvationisfromthejews.com.   There are several messianic jews that I recognize.  If you're still curious you could probably google "messianic jews" or these people in particular.
