Kehilat Melech Yisrael, Toronto
Rabbi Yehezqel is the Senior Rabbi of Congregation Melech Yisrael of Toronto (Kehilat Melech Yisrael). Congregation Melech Yisrael (CMY) was founded in 1976 and is Canada’s oldest Messianic Synagogue. It is located right in the middle of the largest Jewish population in Toronto.
Known for his fiery sermons and thought-provoking teachings on the Torah, Rabbi "Zeke" prides himself as one of the few Rabbis in the Messianic world that still advocates a more traditional Jewish Torah lifestyle within their Messianic faith.
In 2018, Rabbi Zeke took on the task of creating the CMY Siddur Shaar HaShamayim for his congregation with hopes that it would grow to be loved as a family heirloom amongst its readers. With more than 300 viewers weekly, who watch CMY online every Shabbat, Rabbi makes sure that he delivers sound content via live streams, YouTube and Facebook. To find out more about CMY, visit: www.cmy.on.ca.
Rebbetzin Keturah is the wife of Rabbi Yehezqel of Congregation Melech Yisrael in Toronto, ON Canada. Keturah is the founder & visionary of Nishmati Toronto, a global women's ministry that caters to believing women who are trying to live a more Torah observance lifestyle within their Messianic faith.
Realizing that a void existed in her style and type of teaching for Messianic women, Rebbetzin Keturah began to walk into her calling in 2015, using her talents and life experiences to teach women to be fabulous women of G-d instead of women who live in regret with no purpose. Rebbetzin hosts her yearly Master Class Series and has recently debuted her first book, “The Ultimate Guide to Honoring our Husbands”. This year's Women's Conference will be the 5th Anniversary of her personal ministry with CMY & Nishmati.
She is a photographer, author & Teacher, hip-hop artist, & full-time super mom. She loves to craft & knit, loves a good plot, music & movies.

Founding Pastor of the Messianic Kehilat Yovel
Pastor Raúl Rubio and his wife Viviana Valbuena are the founders of the Messianic Kehilat Yovel located in Bogotá, Colombia. Created at the end of 1999, when Pastor Rubio observed the call of God to return to the Jewish roots of the faith: to keep Torah, Shabbat and the feasts of the Lord, following the practices and teachings of our Messiah Yeshua.
During these years Pastor Rubio has led the Yovel Community, seeking the formation of families strengthened in the priesthood of man, social work and outreach, solidarity with the people of Israel and with the Jewish Community in Colombia.

Lighting the world through example...
Founded in 1976, Kehilat Melech Yisrael (CMY) is Canada’s oldest Messianic Synagogue. We are located right in the middle of Jewish Toronto in North York. Our shul is surrounded by many great kosher delis, restaurants, parks and schools. CMY is also walking distance from the Yorkdale mall and subway/bus line with the closest Hotel being the Holiday Inn Dufferin/Yorkdale. The main airport is the Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ).
CMY considers itself more than just a Congregation; we are a living, vibrant community with many services and activities taking place throughout the year. We have a traditional Shabbat service and during service times, the children meet downstairs for class. We pride ourselves in our ability to teach our congregation how to apply Torah Principles to their daily lives and how to take the Words being heard and integrate them into each individual lifestyle. We offer classes throughout the year that help reinforce this learning so that those who hear the Word, will also become doers of the Word as well. Join us each week to hear R' Yehezqel's teaching of the Torah as he builds bridges between two worlds and unites us all in our faith and walk. We also have live online streaming so that everyone can experience the delight of Shabbat no matter where they are!
