All Hineni Publications are a manifestation of God’s present-day regenerating and restoring work in the Israel of God.
Wen we host activities and events we are a faith community where Jews embrace and strengthen Jewish identity and heritage as believers in Messiah Yeshua.
At our online synagogue and offline outreach, Jews and Gentiles have been made echad (one) in their embrace of Yeshua as God’s atoning Messiah who will reign on David’s throne.
Here Gentiles embrace Israel, prioritize a Jewish expression of their faith, and serve alongside Jewish believers.
The Thirteen Principles
Maimonides The great codifier of Torah law and Jewish philosophy, Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon (“Maimonides” also known as “The Rambam”), compiled what he refers to as the Shloshah Asar Ikkarim, the “Thirteen Fundamental Principles” of the Jewish faith, as derived from the Torah. Maimonides refers to these thirteen principles of faith as “the fundamental truths of our religion and its very foundations.” The Thirteen Principles of Jewish faith are as follows:
1. Belief in the existence of the Creator, who is perfect in every manner of existence and is the Primary Cause of all that exists.
2. The belief in G-d’s absolute and unparalleled unity.
3. The belief in G-d’s non-corporeality, nor that He will be affected by any physical occurrences, such as movement, or rest, or dwelling.
4. The belief in G-d’s eternity.
5. The imperative to worship G-d exclusively and no foreign false gods.
6. The belief that G-d communicates with man through prophecy.
7. The belief in the primacy of the prophecy of Moses our teacher.
8. The belief in the divine origin of the Torah.
9. The belief in the immutability of the Torah.
10. The belief in G-d’s omniscience and providence.
11. The belief in divine reward and retribution.
12. The belief in the arrival of the Messiah and the messianic era.
13. The belief in the resurrection of the dead.
It is the custom of many congregations to recite the Thirteen Articles, in a slightly more poetic form, beginning with the words Ani Maamin–“I believe”–every day after the morning prayers in the synagogue.
At ST, envisioning and assisting in the restoration of the people of Israel to their God and to their calling, will work this out in the following ways:
Commit to, and grow in a lifestyle of faith called Biblical Judaism
Reveal first to the people of Israel, and also to the world, the true identity of the Messiah Yeshua
Support Israel and the Jewish people in opposing all acts of hatred against them
Call the brothers and sisters in the Body of Messiah to the proper understanding of God’s covenant promises to Israel and their restoration.
Taken together, along with the rest of the article below, these vision and mission concepts are what makes a Biblical Judaism fellowship unique as a community. They differentiate our community from Non-Jewish congregations with whom we fellowship.

Statement of Faith
Hineni Hebraic Fellowship encourages people of all beliefs and persuasions to investigate what the Bible teaches. There is no official membership at Hineni. However, we consider a number of biblical doctrines to be central to our faith and vital to the integrity of all aspects of our ministry.
The Bible is the inspired word of God. The 66 books which constitute the Bible are entirely reliable and truthful, and the Bible stands as the central authority over our lives, our faith and the direction of our ministry and cell groups.
God is both self-existent and personal
G-d is one. The Bible refers to these persons as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. God is both self-existent and personal. (John 14:10, 26; 15:26)
Yeshua, The Messiah
We believe the teachings, mision and awakening Biblical Judaism movement of Yeshua ( Jesus), according to the Scriptures itself :
Who has gone up to heaven and come down? Who has gathered up the wind in the hollow of his hands? Who has wrapped up the waters in his cloak? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is his name, and the name of his son? Tell me if you know! Proverbs 30:4
He lived a sinless life, died for the sins of humankind, was resurrected bodily on the third day, ascended into heaven and is coming again as King and Judge.
Yeshua, the Messiah is the only provision that God has given for people to be reconciled to Him. Yeshua’ s life on Earth also serves as the model for the biblical jewish life. Read ( also read John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Mark 6:45-52; John 6:15-21 ).
The Holy Spirit is not a vague, ethereal life force. He is not impersonal or unthinking. The Holy Spirit is a “person” equal in every way with God, the Father, and God, the Son. The Bible tells us that all the characteristics of God apparent in the Father and the Son are equally apparent in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit also endows each believer with a unique spiritual ability to serve the congregation and the world. (John 14:16; Ephesians 1:19-20; 1 Corinthians 12)
“What is the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit?”
Answer: The concept of “blasphemy against the Spirit” is mentioned in Mark 3:22-30 and Matthew 12:22-32. The term blasphemy may be generally defined as “defiant irreverence.” The term can be applied to such sins as cursing God or willfully degrading things relating to God. It is also attributing some evil to God, or denying Him some good that we should attribute to Him. This case of blasphemy, however, is a specific one, called “the blasphemy against the Holy Spirit” in Matthew 12:31. In Matthew 12:31-32, the Pharisees, having witnessed irrefutable proof that Jesus was working miracles in the power of the Holy Spirit, claimed instead that the Lord was possessed by the demon “Beelzebub” (Matthew 12:24). Now notice that in Mark 3:30 Jesus is very specific about what they did to commit “blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.”
This blasphemy has to do with someone accusing Yeshua of being demon-possessed instead of Spirit-filled. As a result, this particular incidence of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit cannot be duplicated today. Yeshua the Messiah is not on earth—He is seated at the right hand of God. No one can witness Yeshua the Messiah performing a miracle and then attribute that power to Satan instead of the Spirit. The closest example today would be attributing the miracle of a redeemed person’s changed life to Satan’s power rather than to the effects of the indwelling Holy Spirit.
Salvation is reconciliation with God through the atoning work of Yeshua the Messiah. God offers us salvation by His grace alone and we receive it as a gift through personal faith in the finished work of Yeshua the Messiah. This right standing before God must be received and cannot be earned. God freely offers salvation to all people, and our salvation is secure. (Ephesians 2:8,9; Romans 8:38,39; Ephesians 1:13; 2:4)
Human beings are created in the image of God. As such, we are unique among all of God’s creation. Through the abuse of our God-given free will, we have turned against God and this has resulted in spiritual death for all humankind. Humanity lives in a state of alienation and profound need which can only be satisfied by reconciliation with God through Yeshua the Messiah. Without this reconciliation, all people stand under God’s righteous judgment.
Humanity, although fallen, maintains the image of God and is, therefore, still dignified and unique. God continues to love us and reach out to us, even though we are hostile to Him. Believers in Yeshua the Messiah receive a new nature that becomes the foundation for a process of transformation. (John 3:16; 2 Corinthians 5:17)
The assembly or G-d’s congregation
The congregation is composed of all those throughout history who place saving faith in Yeshua the Messiah . The congregation is not an institution, but a people. God wants all believers to live out their spiritual lives in a corporate context. This context of love relationships is a crucial feature of our witness for Messiah as it reflects God’s character to the world.
The congregation is God’s chosen instrument through which the message of salvation is spread to all people. This mission is the central purpose for the congregation We are to carry the good news locally and worldwide and demonstrate the gospel by relevant social action. (John 13:34, 35; 1 Corinthians 12:12-26; Matthew 28:19)
Satan is the personal, spiritual adversary of God and God’s followers. Satan actively opposes the work of the congregation and the spiritual vitality of believers. We therefore take seriously, but in a balanced way, the reality of personal, spiritual opposition. Satan is doomed to final defeat and judgment when Messiah returns. (Ephesians 6:12; Revelation 20)
This age will conclude with the personal, bodily return of Messiah. At that time, He will complete God’s plan to reestablish His just and righteous rule over all humanity. (Matthew 24:29-31; Revelation 20)
At the final judgment, God will assign all people their eternal destinies-either life or judgment. Those who have responded to Yeshua the Messiah with saving faith will receive the eternal life they have already been promised (John 5:24), while others will live under eternal judgment.
Therefore, because eternal issues are at stake, there is an urgency to communicate the gospel. (Matthew 25:46; 2 Thessalonians 1:5-10)
