“God is light; In him there is no darkness...”  

1 John 1:5

Baruch Hashem.

My name is Emmanuel Tarohocker, the Congregational Leader of Beth Machaseh; which translates to “House of Refuge." We are a Sephardic family serving the Messianic Jewish Community of

Southern New Jersey.

  Messianic Judaism, for those who have never heard of it, is a movement of Jews along with righteous non-Jews who are Torah-observant, practicing Biblical Judaism. We choose to believe Yeshua (the Hebrew name for Jesus) is the promised Messiah for Israel, and the sole path of spiritual salvation for all people. There are estimated to be 350,000* Jews worldwide practicing Messianic Judaism, with the addition of Gentile believers the movement is accelerating globally. 

Now just as our name suggests, we pride ourselves in being a place of refuge for all people, Jew and Gentile alike. To us our name is not just a name but our calling, our identity and responsibility.

We strongly believe in creating and being a safe, comfortable community to

fellowship, worship and express our faith. We are only able to accomplish this by

passionately following two basic (but not exclusive) principles.

To Love and to be


The Torah and Messiah Yeshua both teach that our purpose is to love

God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love others as ourselves,

and in turn, we ourselves can be and will be loved. In order to achieve this standard,

we must be transparent, open and honest. Since the essence of God is Love, when the

community implements these qualities. I believe, we truly become a House of Refuge. 

-Rabbi Emmanuel Tarohocker
