About Us

Shalom from the UBMS

Shalom! Thank you for visiting our website! The Union of British Messianic Synagogues and its international ministry arm United Messianic Synagogues represent affiliated congregations, Jewish local communities who publicly acknowledge that Yeshua is the Mashiach (Messiah) of Israel. He is the Promised One of Jewish tradition and prophetic scripture (Torah).

There is a growing realisation and awareness around the world in both Jewish and Christian faith communities that Yeshua, this Jewish Messiah, at no point created a new religion for His followers, but rather established Judaism and the Torah’s place in that, just as Shaul (Paul) taught too in his letters.

We here in the UBMS/UMS are working, as so many are today, to rebuild a truly Messianic form of Judaism that embraces the full range of Messiah’s teaching. We would love to see you in our synagogues or at one of our conferences if you too feel called to be a part of this final end time renewal of what Judaism can and should be!

Please contact us if you would like to be a part of this new and exciting vision for our Jewish future!

Parashat Ki Tisa

“I'm sorry everyone, I’ve got a load of things to do today and I'm in a hurry so I need to rush through this.” Hmm, have you noticed we are always in a hurry? This has to be done, that has to be done. Even in our work, pressure is on us to meet deadlines etc… This week's Sidra tells us that Moshe was still on the mountain with the L-rd and the people had become impatient waiting for Moshe to come down th

The High Holy Days


Sukkot, coming as it does towards the very end of our festival year, is a time of great rejoicing. Its English name, variously translated from the Hebrew, is commonly known as the feast of Tabernacles. Its origin of course, like most Jewish festivals, is connected with an actual historical event. The 'narrative' year begins in the Spring with Passover, which tells of our deliverance from Egypt, and runs through t
