Benjamin Berger leads the congregation “Kehilat ha’she al Har Zion” (The Congregation of the Lamb on Mt. Zion) along with his brother Reuven. The congregation meets at Christ Church Jerusalem, located at the Jaffa Gate in the Old City. Jews, Arabs and Gentile Christians worship together in Hebrew. Benjamin Berger is the son of Orthodox Jews who immigrated from Europe to New York after many other family members were lost at Auschwitz. Benjamin became an architect, practicing in the U.S. and later in Denmark. He left the practice of Orthodox Judaism, but he did not resolve his many questions about the meaning of life and the meaning of being a Jew. After a period of spiritual study and searching, he came to know the God of his fathers, and to recognize Yeshua (Jesus) as the Messiah of Israel. Benjamin’s brother Reuven also came to know Yeshua, and the two brothers moved to Israel in 1971.

Who gave the rabbis authority to decide who is a Jew?

Benjamin writes, "The question "what is truly Jewish?" needs to be asked. Is rabbinical Judaism the true Judaism for the Jewish people? Has rabbinical Judaism given itself divine authority that God never gave rabbinical Judaism?"
