On behalf of the leaders and members of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Tel Aviv-Yafo, we wish you a very healthy and prosperous year in 2021!

On Good Friday, April 2, and Easter Shabbat and Easter Sunday, April 3 & 4, we celebrated the most amazing events in human history: the death of Y’shua HaMashiach on the cross and His resurrection from the dead and the empty tomb!

Jesus’ death and ultimately, His resurrection, are central to our faith. In 1 Corinthians 15 Paul tells us, 3 I passed on to you the most important points of doctrine that I had received: Christ died to take away our sins as the Scriptures predicted. 4 He was placed in a tomb. He was brought back to life on the third day as the Scriptures predicted . . . 20b He is the very first person of those who have died to come back to life. 21 Since a man brought death, a man also brought life back from death. 22 As everyone dies because of Adam, so also everyone will be made alive because of Christ. (GWN)

The glorious reality that we celebrated is this: Christ has indeed been raised from the dead – 58 So, then, brothers and sisters, don’t let anyone move you off the foundation ⌞of your faith⌟. Always excel in the work you do for the Lord. You know that the hard work you do for the Lord is not pointless. (GWN)

The death and resurrection of Jesus are the deal-breakers for us in the Christian faith. His death and resurrection separates Jesus from all the other religious leaders. He predicted it and He did it.

Plan to join us for in-person worship at Immanuel Lutheran Church:

  • Saturday Shabbat Worship @ 11:00 (with Holy Communion)

We are allowed up to 50 vaccinated people for worship inside the church. All unvaccinated people will be able to worship with us outside in the church garden. Wearing a mask is mandatory. Holy Communion will be individually prepared for everyone by someone wearing a mask and latex gloves. Immediately following all worship services there will be coffee and light refreshments for everyone both inside the church (for those vaccinated) and outside in the garden (for those unvaccinated).

We are also able to “Live Stream” the Shabbat service on Immanuel’s YouTube Channel. The Shabbat sermon will also be recorded and available on both my YouTube channel as well as Immanuel’s YouTube channel later that day.

I am excited to welcome everyone to in-person worship again, to see your smiles (even behind your masks), to hear your laughter, and to reconnect with you after a difficult period of time!

In His service . . . and yours,

Pastor Bob

Rev. Dr. Robert M. Roegner
