Beth Yeshua is a Jewish Messiah confessing congregation, located in Amsterdam where weekly services are held, in addition to all Jewish festivals. The municipality is nationally oriented, with departments spread across the Netherlands.
Beth Yeshua is now 26 years old. Lion Erwteman is the son of two Jewish parents and was born in Eindhoven in 1949. Lion and his wife Elze graduated in biology. After the completion of a second doctoral study, in theology, Talmud and Torah in America – where Lion Erwteman has been ordained officially by smichah, the laying on of hands by rabbis – Lion and Elze Erwteman founded the congregation in Amsterdam. They lead the congregation with various teams.
The congregation has public weekly services, celebrations of all Jewish holidays, Jewish education, fun activities, interesting lectures, courses, youth work, education, social-pastoral and financial care.
Beth Yeshua works together and is closely associated with a large religious ordaining organisation in America and with leaders of congregations in the Netherlands and with Jewish Messianic congregations in Israel, especially the congregation of Netivyah (Roeh Israel), led by Joseph Shulam and Yuda Bachana (son-in-law of Lion and Elze Erwteman).
