In that day the Branch of the Lord shall be beautiful and glorious; and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and appealing for those of Israel who have escaped.
Our congregation's name, "Tsemach Adonai," is Hebrew for "Branch (or shoot) of the Lord," as referred to in Isaiah 4:2:
"In that day the Branch of the L-rd shall be beautiful and glorious; and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and appealing for those of Israel who have escaped."
Kehilat Tsemach Adonai is one of a growing worldwide family of Messianic Jewish kehilot that serve Yeshua HaMashiach (Hebrew name for Jesus, the Messiah).
Messianic Judaism rekindles the spirit of the first century Jewish community of Nazarenes, who followed Yeshua and believed in him as the long-awaited One. Messianic Judaism is a Torah-based Judaism grounded in the Bible.
Judah and Jennifer Morrison have been leading worship and writing music since they were teenagers both having grown up in the Messianic Movement. Their first album titled "Bou Venashuv (Let Us Return)," was released at the end of August 2012. Their music remains true to the worship genre infused with unique vocal harmonies, raw acoustic arrangements, and biblically inspired Hebrew lyrics. Both Judah and Jennifer consider their professional pursuits and family life another essential part of their ministry. Jennifer works for the California State Senate and is currently pursuing a Masters in Public Administration from USC while Judah spends his time studying wine-making at UC Davis. They currently live in Elk Grove CA, with their 3 year old daughter, Silan, who loves dancing, art, school, and asking questions.
