Keren Ohr’s mission is to be a messianic synagogue and community that shines the light of Yeshua to the Jewish people, greater Savannah, GA, and the world. 

We do this in three distinct ways:

Love3 copy


At the root of it all, we need to learn to love God and love others (Matthew 22:36-39). Love is the most important element of all (1 Corinthians 13:1-3).  The perfect love of God will transform us into His children and sustain us through every storm of life.



We seek to grow as followers of Yeshua, our teacher and Messiah.  We come together as a community to grow in our faith and to grow in our relationships (Acts 2:42, Ephesians 4:16).



Once we have experienced His love and grown in our walk with Him, we can go out and share the message of Yeshua with others.  We are to be a Keren Ohr, a ray of light, to our community (Matthew 5:14-16, Proverbs 4:18).

Shabbat services are every Saturday at 10am.
Shabbat Services
Honoring tradition in fresh new ways!
During our weekly Torah service you will experience praise and worship with both contemporary and Messianic Jewish styles of music.  Woven throughout the service, the traditional Jewish prayers are sung or spoken, a custom done in synagogues for thousands of years.  These prayers are in Hebrew and English, so you understand the richness of the Torah service.  The capstone of our service is a message from the bible and the weekly Torah portion that will help you apply the principles of faith to everyday life.
We welcome EVERYONE to worship with us at Keren Ohr Messianic Synagogue!
Our congregation embodies the spirit of Isaiah 56:7 – “a house of prayer for all nations.” 
Both Jewish and non-Jewish believers in Messiah Yeshua worship together every Shabbat!
Shabbat School for Kids
We have nursery available for children up to age 3.  Kids ages 4 through 11 stay in for a portion of the service to join with us in worship.  During Shabbat school, they focus on scripture memory, basic Hebrew, and bible teachings that help them to grow in their understanding of G-d and his love for them.
Youth Group
Our teens are the heart of our synagogue!  They meet every other week immediately following Shabbat service for a time of fellowship and teaching.  The teens serve in various ministries throughout the synagogue – dance, worship, audio/visual – just to name a few.  They also participate in many YMJA retreats and outings.
JudeandJen2Rabbi and Rebbitzen
Rabbi Jude Caracelo is originally from New York and grew up in Brevard County, FL.  He came to know Yeshua as his messiah at the age of 16, and shortly thereafter his family started attending Kol Mashiach Messianic Synagogue.  In July of 2012, Jude was ordained and became the Assistant Rabbi under Rabbi Dr. Alan Levine until God opened the door to move to Savannah, GA.  More…..

Worship and Youth Leaders

Toby Manolis was born and raised in the Atlanta, Georgia area and spent much of his young life in a Baptist church.  In August 2005 at the age of 25, he visited Congregation Beth Yeshua in Macon, Georgia and during that first visit knew he was called to be a part of the Messianic movement.  Soon after, he began serving in the worship team as a bass player and eventually became the congregation’s worship leader in August 2009.  More…..

The point of prayer is not to get answers from G-d, but to have perfect and complete oneness with Him.” – Oswald Chambers
