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.

groups, this site aims:

AV 9, 5778 (July 21/22 – 22/23, 2018)
Ninth of Av is a day commemorating destruction of the First Temple by
the Babylonians in 587 B.C.E.
In the Jewish
tradition, this day is a strict fast obligatory to all Jews.
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.
