Shalom!

Shoresh David is a congregation of Jews and non-Jews who come together to worship the Lord in unity. Our Services include liturgy in Hebrew and English, prayer, a message from God’s Word, Shabbat School for the children, Messianic Praise and Worship and Davidic Dance. We begin our gathering with the blessing over the bread and wine, then fellowship together during “nosh” (a Biblically kosher pot-luck style meal).

It is our desire to bring the Spirit of the Lord to everyone we meet in the Wesley Chapel, Lutz, and Land O’Lakes areas. We welcome visitors. If you are new to the community or congregation, please introduce yourself. If you have any further questions, you may contact us at 813-760-3269. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Rejoicing In Messiah,

Frequently Asked Questions for Visitors

What is the weekend schedule?

On Saturday, our Shabbat service begins at 11:00am and ends at approximately 1:00pm. Our address is Wesley Chapel address is 7107 Boyette Road, Wesley Chapel FL 33545.

There is a light lunch served at no cost for everyone. Welcome to schmooze and enjoy time together. Sometimes we have an after service study beginning around 1:30 pm, and sometimes we have offered Hebrew classes or dance classes at this time.

Periodically we also have Erev Shabbat (Friday evening) meals in homes. For further information, view our Events Calendar or contact us.

What can I expect at services?

Our services contain prayer, praise and worship music, liturgy, and a message from the Rabbi. We have power point screens at the front of the sanctuary. They contain Hebrew, transliteration (Hebrew using
English letters) and translation of Hebrew words for our song lyrics, liturgy, Scriptures and announcements. Whenever Hebrew is used, it is always translated. Please note: Our services are Live-streamed on Facebook.

What is the etiquette during the service?

Men are encouraged to wear a kippah (head covering).  Everyone is encouraged to dress and act modestly. Most people come to services “dressy casual.” But you will notice a variety in how people are dressed. So, relax, you look just fine!

Is it true that there is dancing as part of praise and worship?

At times we incorporate Israeli dance as a worship expression during parts of the service. Both men and women are free to participate, even if you are not familiar with the dance steps. If you participate in the
dance, please dress modestly. Also you may see some waving worship flags or banners while hearing others blowing the shofar (horn from a ram or African Kudu). We encourage these expressions of worship to the LORD.

If I am a Jew who does not believe in Yeshua  (Jesus), am I welcome to visit?

Absolutely! We welcome everyone! Since there is such diversity in the Jewish population, we can’t be sure that we can meet everyone’s needs, but we strive to have a service that will be spiritually enriching
and strengthen your walk with God, regardless whether you are extremely religious or not religious at all.

Is childcare available for
babies and toddlers?

Yes, the nursery opens before service and it is available throughout the entire service for babies and toddlers, 0-3 years. Because of our safety procedures, please be sure to sign your child in and out of the nursery and complete a registration card. Pick up your child immediately after the conclusion of the
service. If staying for the oneg (light lunch), accompany your child through the food line.

Is there a children’s program?

Children ages 4-12 participate in the main service until they are dismissed for Shabbat School. (approximately 11:45 am) Children must be registered using the yellow Shabbat School card when they attend for the first time. This can be done in the classroom. Shabbat School ends about the same time as
the adult service in the Sanctuary is over.

Are there others things I should know about the service?

Join in with Hebrew and English songs and liturgy as much, or as little, as you feel comfortable. Also you are welcome to participate in our Torah procession. This is the portion of the service where we process
our Torah scroll around the sanctuary. The Torah scroll is a visible reminder of the all of God’s Word (Tanach and B’rit Chadasha or OT and NT). You are invited to follow the Torah procession. When the Torah comes near you are invited (but not obligated) to reach out with your Bible, tzitzit, or hand touch the Torah and bring your Bible, tzitzit or hand back to your lips as a sign of love and devotion to the Lord and His Word.

If I am a Christian, and belong to a church, am I welcome to visit?

Absolutely! We welcome everyone! We would love for you to experience the Jewishness of your faith. Bring your entire family and friends too.
