HISTORY Congregation Beth Emeth, established in 1976, began as Jewish Messianic ministry located in Lincoln, Illinois whose purpose it was to educate those Christian churches who were seeking information about their Jewish roots and also to establish a love for and support of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. In 1980, at the direction of Ascher Carl, the ministry evolved into a formal congregation first holding services in a local hotel in Park Forest, Illinois. Then after only a few short years, the congregation relocated to a Christian Church in Flossmoor, Illinois. In 1989, as Congregation Beth Emeth grew it began holding its services at Hillcrest Christian Church in Hazel Crest, Illinois. Then in 2010, it moved to its current location in Minooka, Illinois. In 2005, Ascher Carl having made the decision to retire formally transferred the day to day responsibilities of the Congregation to Rabbi Jacob Goode whose desire it is to faithfully continue with what has been Beth Emeth’s main purpose since its inception, that of educating those who are seeking information about their Jewish roots and also to establish a love for and support of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. Although retired, Ascher Carl remains active in the ministry while now living in South Carolina. Congregation Beth Emeth is a past member of the International Federation of Federation of Sephardic and Askenazic Jews (IFSAJ/IFMJ). Today, Congregation Beth Emeth is beginning its fifth decade of teaching, enlightenment and encouragement to those who are seeking a closer walk with Yeshua HaMashiach. We continue to stress the absolute importance of study with respect to the entire Word of HaShem, beginning with the foundation of all Judeo/Christian belief, the “Written Torah” given to Moshe on Mt. Sinai and next including the remainder of the Tenakh (both of which are often referred to as the “Old Testament”) and finally the Brit Hadassah (the “New Testament”). We consider our synagogue as a place to find warmth, inspiration, and fellowship, a place to live our heritage, a place of deep involvement, participation, and commitment, a place of extensive study and learning, a place of prayer, a place of emotional, spiritual, and intellectual stimulation. It is a place from which to carry all this into our daily lives.
