At Kehilat Ha Kerem, our goal is twofold: to provide a more historical style of worship and prayer, and to enhance the prayer life of disciples of Jesus “Yeshua,” bringing ourselves closer to Him and to the Father.
We believe that traditional expressions of prayer can deepen our intimacy with our Creator and expand our knowledge and awareness of Him. Through the sacrifice of Yeshua, God’s Messiah, and with the strength of the Ruach Ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit), we strive to love Adonai with all our hearts, minds, and souls, while also seeking to love our neighbors as ourselves.

Jews and Gentiles One in Messiah



Creation Redemption Restoration

We believe that Yeshua (Jesus) is the promised Messiah of Israel and it is through knowing Him and living Torah centered lives that we can bring Light to a dark world.
CONGREGATION OF THE ORCHARD is dedicated to the unity of the Holy Scriptures, spanning from Genesis 1 through Revelation 22. As a united body, we seek to worship the Living G-d with unwavering spirit and unyielding devotion. Guided by the sacred teachings of G-d’s Word, we order our services and lead our lives with utmost reverence.
Our congregation of New Covenant Believers strives to emulate the path of Jesus (Yeshua), wholeheartedly loving Adonai our G-d and treating our neighbors as we would ourselves.

Shabbot and Holy Days

Sabbath (as the verb שָׁבַת֙ shabbat) is first mentioned in the Genesis creation narrative, where the seventh day (Saturday) is set aside as a day of rest (in Hebrew, shabbat) and made holy by God (Genesis 2:2–3) and is highlighted as the fourth commandment in the Ten Commandments: “Remember the Sabbath day, and keep it holy.
Please join us in Charlevoix, Michigan on Shabbat (Saturdays). You’re welcome to call 231-547-4350 during the week for more information. Visitors are always welcome.

A Call for International Spiritual Solidarity

At KEHILAT HA KEREM, we are committed to seeking God’s protection and peace through prayer.   We lift up heartfelt prayers for the State of Israel, the safety and success of the Israel Defense Forces, and the safe return of hostages and prisoners of war. We also extend our prayers to the United States government and military in America.

We invite you to join us in this powerful act of unity. Pray sincerely, allowing G-d’s Spirit to inspire your words. As a valuable resource, we would like to share with you a complimentary guide from FFOZ that will lead you in praying with us in one voice. We wholeheartedly encourage you to raise your voice with us, incorporating these prayers into your congregations, prayer meetings, and private prayer times, thus strengthening the bond of discipleship to Yeshua among nations.

This PDF download contains four separate prayer cards that focus on the State of Israel, the Israel Defense Forces, those in captivity, and the US Armed Forces. These prayers are a tangible way to unite our voices in a collective plea for peace and security in Israel and the world.
