We are so pleased that you have visited our website.

Torah Resources International is an organization comprised of individuals who are seriously committed to knowing Yeshua as the Living Word and Messiah by studying the entire Torah, from Genesis through Revelation. We are a group of teachers and authors who seek to promote the biblically Hebraic concepts of the Torah with the hope that people will gain a greater depth of understanding of Yeshua, as well as how we were created to live.

We invite you to participate in this challenging and exciting learning process with us that you too might catch a glimpse of the truth that the Scriptures, from Genesis to Revelation, are truly darche noam, ways of pleasantness for all who take hold of them. 

Upcoming Holiday: Hanukkah -- A Time of Rededication
    25 Kislev -- 2 Tevet  6 [Erev] -- 14 December

If the Maccabees had not chosen to put their very lives on the line and stand with God and His commandments and fight to preserve their freedom of worship of Him, what do you think would have ultimately happened?

Because certain people chose to fight to maintain their way of life serving God and not assimilate into the increasingly dominating Greek society, their dedication and God's supernatural intervention led to the real miracle of Hanukkah:  the victory of an overwhelmingly outnumbered small group of Jews over their enemies which ensured the survival of a people set apart for God. It is a vivid testimony to God's sovereignty over a seemingly impossibly situation. This military deliverance provided for a future spiritual deliverance through the fulfillment of the birth of a Jewish Messiah, Yeshua, the true miracle of light amidst the darkness.

Torah Portion from Briteinu – Vayishlach – וישלח

Jacob’s Struggle

Twenty years had passed since Jacob was in his homeland. The Lord took him away from Canaan and it was the Lord who, in this parasha, is bringing him back. During his twenty years absence, Jacob had matured through the many hard experiences he encountered while living in Paddan-aram. God grew him up! He had to mature because when he returned to Canaan he would encounter many more difficult situations that called for God’s wisdom. He would not have had such wisdom if it were not for the tough lessons the Lord taught him while living with Laban.

From the Haftarah

The Ever-Merciful Hand of Grace

Hosea, the prophet, is renouncing Israel's sins and their failure to seek God. If they chose to not come back to the Lord their God, Hosea explained to them that they only await a terrible end. At the conclusion of the passage, the prophet provided hope that despite the fact that Israel would be and had been unfaithful to the covenant, nevertheless, God had still remained faithful to His part of the covenant. He appealed to Israel through the prophets to come back to Him. He Himself, at the same time, promised to bring them back and forgive them.

“Should,” “Must,” or “Have To”

Our hearts want to communicate something that we think is important. In our exploration of the non-Jewish person’s relationship to the Torah, we have scrupulously avoided the use of “must,” “should,” and “have to,” as these ideas are completely inappropriate to the issues at hand.

The use of such words tends to open the door wide to the possibility of legalism taking over. By “legalism,” we mean the belief that adherence to the Torah is a requirement for obtaining, and/or maintaining, one’s justification before God.
