"Messianic Judaism is a young and maturing movement wrestling with its identity, standards, and direction.  We need a leading body that can help guide our fledgling community into the future.  The Messianic Jewish Rabbinical Council, with some of the foremost leaders and thinkers of our Movement, is working to establish credible standards of observance.  I chose to be a member of the MJRC because it is leading the way in creating a more mature Messianic Judaism."
