Kehilat HaCarmel is a Messianic congregation that began in 1991. Our earliest meetings were held in downtown Haifa at House of Victory. We soon moved up to a rented meeting room in a guest house in a village on top of Mount Carmel. As the congregation grew in number, we were offered an adjacent piece of property that was not being used by the owners. Our own community and many friends helped to build our worship center which was dedicated in 1998.
As an Israeli congregation, we express our faith in the Messiah Yeshua through the richness of our heritage in the observance of the biblical festivals and the Shabbat. Each Saturday, we come together to worship and pray as a congregational family. As a community based on reconciliation, we embrace the “one new man” of Ephesians 2, and invite people from all nations to worship with us.
In addition to our Shabbat morning meetings (held in Hebrew and English, with translations into Russian and Arabic), and Saturday evening meetings in Hebrew, there are weekly times of prayer for our nation and other pressing situations, and home groups in various languages. The congregation also provides humanitarian aid through the “Raven's Basket,” which delivers food packages to needy families from all backgrounds, and “Elijah's Cloak,” a clothing distribution center located in downtown Haifa.
