Congregation Beth Yeshua (PA)

Contact Information

7501 Haverford Ave
Philadelphia, PA, USA, 19151

Formed in November 1974, many in the early congregation came to the Lord during the Jesus movement in the late '60's - early '70's. In January, 1975 Martin Chernoff and his family move to Philadelphia to shepherd the new congregation. The Chernoff family came to Philadelphia in July of 1975.

Early history (before the first synagogue): The people of Beth Yeshua were 'wandering Jews' meeting for worship at various places. At a community room in a bank, a Jewish War Veterans meeting space, a nursery facility, the Marriott, the Holiday Inn and finally the Ramara Motor Inn (with an 'r' - it was definitely not the Ramada Motor Inn), the Lord prepared the members to learn to rough it prior to moving into their present facility in 1982.
