Welcome Visitors on Kaunas Messianic site, created on initiative of Vilnius Messianic Community.
Since the rebirth of Israel in 1948, Messianic Judaism is a national Jewish movement which restores natural development of the first authentic Apostolic Congregation of Ya‘akov (Jacob, James the Just). This development was interrupted in course of aggression of Imperial Rome against Judea (this war enabled spread of the Salvation among Gentiles at the expense of the Jews, see here). While restoring historical situation of the 1st age B.C.E., Messianic Judaism also gives a chance to last Gentile Christians who have not turned back to heathendom yet.
Only Jews alone can establish their Messianic communities. Gentiles can be admitted to Jewish Messianic communities under easened conditions, determined by the Apostolic Council (Acts 15:19–21), but they cannot impact on Jews any non-Jewish theosophy which leads to disintegration (e.g. any “correct theology”, obligatory dogmas, etc.) 
Gentiles living far from Jewish Messianic Communities, can form Messianic groups within their own confessions, in which they overcome non-Abrahamic mentality, disintegration and Anti-Semitism once prompted by Imperial Rome. 

  ♦ Similarly to other Messianic communities and groups, this site aims:
1) To spread knowledge about Y-shua‘ (Ye-ua‘, Y-shu‘, JHS) as Jewish Messiah (Hebr. Mašīah, Gr. Christ) and Saviour of the world who comes soon for the Second time in glory; to remind traditional Christians of their being grafted in the roots of the Chosen people of Israel, with whom the New Covenant has been established by G-d, and who will be entirely saved (Rom 11, 17-27) as G-d's People, expanding on all true non-Jewish believers in Y-shua‘ HaMashiah, as His Body-Church, not prevailed by the gates of hell (Matth 16, 18),
2) To participate in globally spreading Messianic Movement, guided by the Messianic Jews, to live in accordance with the Sermon on the Mount and the Law fulfilled by JHS, to keep apostolic Sabbaths finalizing with Eucharist on the following day (the first day) of the week,
3) To pray for conversion and salvation of the entire Israel,
4) To pray for the Land of Israel, for its towns, people and peace,
5) To worship G-d in Hebrew,
6) To translate and spread messianic literature, to participate in messianic dialogues.
  ♦ Vilnius Messianic Community being interconfessional, the same is this site oriented toward a pre-Nicene pre-dogmic apostolic epoch, what unites all who accept JHS as their Lord, round the Messianic Jews with their grounding in:
1) Y-shua‘ as prophesied and for the second time coming Messiah of the Chosen people,
2) Y-shua‘ as Saviour of the whole mankind.
  ♦ Similarly to other messianic sites, this site is oriented toward halachian Jewish tradition, although on reasoned grounds: 
1) differently from the Jews Kairaites, the halachian Jews represent overall majority of all Jews; 
2) while represented by all Rabbinic Israeli Leadership, and in accordance with a new religion of the Oral Torah, this majority rejected from G-d-ordained sacrifices on any altar at the Temple Mount, when demanding Moshe Dayan to deliver keys of the mount to Moslem Waqf
E in 1967, in contrast to Jews having come back from Babylonan exile. In this way the Jewish people were brought out from the Sinai Covenant, see Ex 24:7. This is not any obstacle for them to enter the New Covenant (Jer 31:30), where the Messianic Jews already are.
  ♦ Lithuania being traditionally a Catholic country, the site tries to help Catholics to overcome Anti-Christian crisis in the Church by showing, in Catholic terms, a way to their Jewish olive-tree.

TIŠ‘
Ā   ĀB   TAŠ‘AH  (5778)

AV 9, 5778  (July 21/22 – 22/23, 2018)

The Ninth of Av is a day commemorating destruction of the First Temple by the Babylonians in 587 B.C.E.
and of the Second Temple by the Romans in 70 C.E.

In the Jewish tradition, this day is a strict fast obligatory to all Jews. 
It also commemorates a number of other calamities of the nation on Av 9.

Rules of fasting are similar to those on Yom Kippūr. Differently from the latter (A Substitutionary Sacrifice), this day has no Biblical meaning for the Messianic believers, however Messianic believers are invited to fast in solidarity with the whole Jewish nation.

For Jewish rules and traditions of Tish‘ah bә’Ab, The Ninth of Av, cf. The Ninth of Av .
