Opening the door to the “One New Man”.
Yeshiva Shiloh’s vision is to equip the saints of G-d to serve and minister to Him as He as instructed us to. This mandate was further fueled when discovering that G-d wants us to return to the “Ancient Paths” that He has deemed in which we would find “rest for our souls”. He tells us in Jeremiah 6:16 (NAS) – “Thus says the LORD, ‘Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, Where the good way is, and walk in it; and you will find rest for your souls, BUT they said, ‘We will not walk in it'”.
Does this apply to the Church today? Are we so stiff necked and stubborn that we do not want to hear what our G-d the Creator of the Universe is telling us? What are the ancient paths? Could these “paths” be the instructions that G-d has given us to live our lives and how He wants us to approach and worship Him? The Bible is not two separate inities. It is one comprehensive and continuos revelation of G-d’s instructions to man, His dealings with the Nation of Israel and the fulfillment of ALL prophecies and promises through Yeshua HaMashiach – Jesus our Messiah.
For too long we as believers in Yeshua (Jesus) have not been told nor did we study for ourselves the truths that G-d has given us in His WORD. The Torah – the first five books of the Bible tell us exactly how G-d wants us to approach Him in worship and in praise as well as the instructions He gives us to live out our lives in the manner that He says is acceptable.
THEN in the B-rit Hadasha (the New Testament which is actually the Renewed Covenant) He shows us the answers to all of the prophecys that were given to godly men of old – Yeshua, our Messiah who fulfilled every single prophecy!
Romans 11:16 Tells us “but if it is by grace, it no longer on the basis of works, otherwise grace is no longer grace.” Nothing other than belief and trust in Yeshua brings about our salvation, yet Yeshua Himself tells us in John 14:15, 23: John 15:10-11- That “IF” you love me you will keep my commandments. Upon this truth, our mission is to equip the saints to live out the life that G-d has asked us to live – full of grace and salvation- a pleasing walk before Him.
Yeshiva Shiloh is a “One New Man” Yeshiva dedicated to providing education and tools that you may “Be diligent to present yourself approved to G-d as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the the WORD of TRUTH.”
(2 Timothy 2:15 NAS)

Statement of Faith
We believe that G-d is Echad (One), as declared in the Shema, “a united one’ or ‘compound unity” eternally existent in three persons, the Father, the Son (Yeshua), and the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit).
One New Man is a biblically-based movement of people who, as committed Jews and Gentiles, believe in Yeshua (Jesus) as the Jewish Messiah of Israel of whom the Torah and prophets spoke. Two, woven together into One New Man. One New Man is the weaving together of the Torah with belief in and service to Yeshua. Both are essential to our halacha (walk) here on earth. Yeshua alone is our path into eternity. Ephesians 2:11-22.
It’s all about Yeshua, I Corin 2:2.
Messianic Judaism believes that Yeshua Ha Mashiach (Jesus the Messiah) is the Divine resurrected Savior for all mankind. Messianics believe that the word of God includes both the TaNaK (older covenant books) and the B’rit Chadashah (new covenant books). In other words, this means the whole Bible.. We believe that the Bible is one book. It is the only infallible and authoritative Word of God.
We believe that Yeshua is our Messiah and through Him and Him alone is our salvation.
For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one, and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in his flesh the enmity, which is the Law of Commandments contained in ordinances that in himself He might make the two into “One New Man,” thus establishing shalom.
