While Beth Shalom Messianic Congregation is the home assembly for Rabbi Steve Berkson, all of his teachings are produced and distributed through the umbrella organization of Messianic Torah Observant Insrael (M.T.O.I.). All of the teachings produced by M.T.O.I. can be found by clicking here.

We would love to have you come and meet us personally if the opportunity should ever avail itself. But in the meantime, you can always join us each Shabbat online. We stream our services via YouTube, starting at 1:15 PM EST / 12:15 CST. Our services feature a time of praise and worship, corporate prayer, Hebraic liturgy, and the oft time humorous and always challenging, in-depth teachings of Rabbi Berkson. You can watch LIVE by clicking play below starting at 1:00 PM EST / 12:00 CST. Connect with others via the chat box while you wait for the service to start. The service starts when Rabbi Berkson sounds the shofar.

Since we are joining each other online, we sometimes face technical challenges. This means that you might not be able to see or understand the liturgy as it is being streamed. In an effort to improve your online participation, we have created this page so that you can download anything that we make available. For starters, we are providing a PDF of our Shabbat liturgy. Feel free to download, print, and share this liturgy with anyone that you are worshipping with.

All past services streamed via YouTube can be found online here. We recognize the importance of experiencing the whole service and not just the teachings. Even though we are a virtual congregation, we want to provide an experience that is as close as possible to being part of a physical assembly.

Covenant Community 101: Are You Saved? -
Part 5

About this teaching:

Rabbi Steve Berkson focuses on the topic of “Who Shall be Saved?” as he takes us to the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 13. There we find the parable Yeshua taught about “The Wheat and the Tares” – which was meant to describe two types of people within the congregation of Elohim. How do we know today who is which? Does that responsibility rest on us? If Elohim knows about this (He does), why does He allow it? What will be done and when? By whom? From there Rabbi Steve moves to Paul’s letter written to those who were in Rome — those who’s eyes and ears were opened and whose hearts were ready to receive — those who should know better. In chapter 11 Paul begins by posing the question, “Has God rejected His people?” Rabbi Steve points out that even then people were consumed with “Who gets in and who doesn’t.“ So much so that in chapter 11 we read Paul explaining the plan of Elohim through a metaphor using olive trees. What are the branches? What is the root? What is the real problem going on here? This teaching is loaded with what you need for your daily walk and to understand more deeply the love of the Father toward you.
