of the Bay Area, California

We are a Community

Located in Santa Clara County, we are a UMJC community welcoming Jews and Gentiles that honors Yeshua, the Messiah of Israel.

Grounded In The Bible

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.

COVID‑19 & Virtual Services

Our 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."
