In celebration of Passover, we thought it appropriate to remember, and even reprint, what appears to be the first messianic haggadah ever produced, printed more that 120 years ago: the Rabinowitz Haggadah.
Joseph Rabinowitz (1837–1899) grew up in a Russian Chassidic family and became a devout and pioneering follower of Yeshua. He formed Benei Yisrael, is widely considered the first Messianic Jewish congregation of the modern era. The Rabinowtiz Haggadah is a fascinating look at early Messianic thought and is an inspiring piece of our Messianic heritage.
The new Mezuzah booklet helps us discover the scriptural basis for the tradition of the mezuzah and its history from the time of Moses to the present day. Study the mezuzah's symbolism and how it reveals the work of Messiah in our everyday lives.
Vine of David is proud to present Paul Philip Levertoff’s great masterpiece, The Religious Thought of the Chasidim, now available in English with a fresh new translation from Vine of David.

The biblical education of Jewish children begins with Leviticus, a book largely about the sacrificial system. The animal sacrifices, however, are especially repugnant to modern Christians who see them as a temporary provision until Messiah's final atonement for sin. By studying the sacrifices we gain insight into God's instructions for approaching him in worship, and a better understanding of Yeshua's work on our behalf.
Worship leader Troy Mitchell’s debut album, “Yoke of the King,” brings a fresh and authentic voice to Messianic Judaism. Mitchell’s original songs draw from the Gospels, the Hebrew of the Tanach, the Midrash, synagogue prayers, and first-century liturgy—even utilizing the Greek of the Apostolic Scriptures—to bring a fusion of Chassidic joy, gospel hope, jazz, and soulish prayer focused on the light of Messiah.
