Torah Study Groups

There is little doubt that we are currently witnessing a world-wide phenomenon of Torah-loving and Torah-studying groups, coming into existence at a rate and a scale that is truly astonishing. In South Africa alone, there is hardly a town or a city or a municipal area where one will not find at least one such a group. We are not talking about Jewish communities or any of the traditional forms of Judaism, or Christianity for that matter. This is about believers in Y’shua the Messiah, among the nations of the world, who have all made the “surprising” discovery that the Torah is part and parcel of their lifestyle and belief as followers of Messiah.

This blog post is an effort to create a platform where existing or new TRACE (Torah-Reading-And-Commandment-Embracing) GROUPS may be discovered and where individual believers may come into contact with such a group within their own area. Perhaps this platform may even encourage some to get together with others and start a new group (or groups) from scratch. Remember, two or three people are enough to be able to take hands and study Torah together! If you’re involved with such a group – big or small – or would like to share with, or learn from others, PLEASE SEND YOUR COMMENTS and help us to kick start the process of “tracing” Torah lovers – not only in South Africa, but also abroad.

To get your group listed, use the comment form below, or email if you wish, and send us (1) a descriptive name of your group (like “Family Brown”, “Pretoria South”, “Impala Street” – any name that describes your group), (2) the day and time of the week when your group assembles, (3) Optional: the exact address (Google recognizable) where your group assembles, (4) a name, contact number and email address that may help those who wish to visit and (5) a website address, if applicable. Click on the existing pointers on the map below to get an idea of what we are looking for. We shall publish your group’s detail on our interactive map soon after hearing from you, so that our database of TRACE groups may grow and become as comprehensive as possible.

    Please do not hesitate to make use of this platform to share or communicate your feelings, questions, opinions, fears, convictions, etc. with regards to the renewed interest in the Torah, in our present time. Tell us about your area’s Torah study group – the materials you are using, the hindrances you are facing, the positive outcome of the process of studying the Torah. Surely there are many others who would like to know …

    • Sonia Ohlsen says:

      Shalom there,
      I moved to Baberton,a girl friend of mine in Cape Town where i came from want to become part of a Torah study group in Worcester. I counselled her and she want to know more. Can you please email me a number of someone in Worcester?

    • Roxanne says:

      Goeie dag,


      Ons is ‘n jong familie met ‘n baba en nog een oppad in Hout Baai – is die naaste Torah Study in Fishhoek?




      • John says:

        Ek is nie tans bewus van ‘n groep in Houtbaai of nader aan jou as Vishoek nie, Roxanne.  Kom loer gerus by ons in een Shabbat.  Ons dienste is altyd 4 nm, behalwe eerskomende Shabbat, wanneer ons (weens buitegewone omstandighede) om 10 vm bymekaar kom.

        • Roxanne says:

          Dankie John

          Ek gaan probeer die naweek. Nou eers die boodskap gelees want Ek soek nogsteeds :-)

      • John says:

        Jy is baie welkom!  Ons diens in 4 nm by Risiweg 40 in Vishoek (soos normaalweg).

    • Ryan Levin says:

      Hi John

      I am a Messianic Jew. I submit to KTC(Kings To Christ) ministries. An international Messianic ministry headed up by a Jewish Apostle. I would like to start a fellowship in my area (Centurion). How would I go about doing this?

      Please advise


      • John says:

        If you contact me via email (see details under “Contact us”) we can chat about this. Keep in mind that we are not affiliated to any organization and located in the Cape Town area, with little knowledge of the Messianic environment in Gauteng.

  3. Derech haTorah Word Study Group says:

    Roodepoort, West Rand area
    We alternate our meetings on Shabbat/Yom Rishon
    Shabbat – 10:00 to 13:00 – Old Testament studies
    Yom Rishon – 09:00 to 13:00 – New Testament studies
    Shabbat and Yom Rishon afternoons (after study meetings) – Hebrew reading class – we’re learning Hebrew by reading Scripture – 14:00 to 16:00
    Facilitator: Ria Wilson – 084 521 7350

    • Ria Wilson says:

      I would like to make corrections to our meeting information, please. We now meet:

      Every Shabbat 14:00-17:00: We are currently studying the book of Y’chezqel.
      New Hebrew Basics class will start on Thursday, 15 August from 18:30, every Thursday evening for 15 weeks.

  4. John says:

    Someone sent me an email and asked: “I do not have a Torah Study Group organized but would like to, as for now just my wife and I study together. I would like to get one started here. Should I send in my information even though we don’t have a group at the present time?”

    In response, my answer was: “By all means! The whole idea is to list every single house where Torah is studied and where others are welcome to join in.”

    If you have only started with your Torah journey and would like others to join you on certain days, please let us know! Numbers are not the issue, it is all about tracing the manner and scale in which the Torah has effected individuals’ lives and letting others know that they are welcome to become part of this process.

  9. RobWentzel says:

    Shalom aan alle Torah liefhebbers.
    Ek en my vroutjie studeer afgelope 9jaar die “ou pad’
    Daar is in ons harte ‘n bekommernis om te registreer en dit word in Openbaring 12:17 weergee …>>En die draak was vertoornd op die vrou, en hy het weggegaan om oorlog te voer teen haar ander nakomelinge wat die gebooie van Elohiem bewaar en die getuienis van Yahshua hou.
    Dink net hoe maklik dit vir die draak gaan wees as “haar ander nakomelinge” gerigistreer is in elke dorp. :neutral:

  10. John says:

    Ek deel jou bekommernis oor die oorlog wat teen Torah-gesindes gevoer word, Robert. Ons vra nie dat iemand registreer nie. Ons probeer dit vir mense van vlees en bloed makliker maak om groepe op te spoor waar die Torah ernstig opgeneem word, want (anders as die Draak van Openbaring 12) weet hulle nie altyd waar hierdie groepe bymekaar kom nie! :glad:

  11. RobWentzel says:

    Hallo John
    Ek dog dan die vervolging is iets wat gebeur gedurende die 3.5jaar verdrukking ?

  12. John says:

    Robert, ek dink nie die ware gelowiges sal ooit sonder vervolging wees nie. Soms voel dit vir my kompleet of ek en die mense rondom my NOU, op hierdie oomblik, binne-in die drie en half jaar (of “X” jaar) periode van eindtyd vervolging is. Seker nog meer rede om uit te vind wáár ander gelowiges hulle bevind en wát ‘n mens kan doen om in hierdie dae nie heeltemal alleen op die geloofspad te wees nie, of hoe? :4?:

  13. Sandra Fowler says:

    Ek’s van Bloemfontein, ek doen die afgelope 4 jaar + op my eie by die huis navorsing op soek na die waarheid, het wel ‘n paar vriende en vriendinne wat ook soek en met mekaar deel, ons kom nie op ‘n spesifieke dag by mekaar nie. Van ons sien mekaar by die werk en ruil inligting uit, bespreek onderwerpe, deel DVD’s en bid vir mekaar. Van ons korrespondeer via e-mail.

    Sal jy asseblief die groepie gelowiges in Kimberley se plek en tyd van samekoms op jou webwerf se Torah-onderhouers plot soos hieronder aangedui. Hulle is ‘n wonderlike groepie van so 4 manne en 7 vroue wat elke 7de dag om 09h30 byeenkom onder leiding van Geoff Ettwein. Die adres vir die plek van samekoms is as volg:

    Harrisstraat 1, Beaconsfield, Kimberley.

    Baie dankie vir julle gebede en bydrae vir die tog na Kimberley; dit was ‘n reuse sukses, insluitende ons besoek aan die plaaslike groepie. Ons het ook ‘n geleentheid gemaak om by ‘n biskop van ‘n taamlike groot gemeente te gaan Shalom sê en terselfdertyd die Goeie Nuus oor te dra . Hy kom gereeld Kaap toe en wil weer met ons kontak maak om die geloof verder beken. Hy sal sy eie navorsing ook maak.

    Groete daar by julle.

  30. Charl says:

    I left the established church because of the wrong use of The NAME, and of its criticism of of the Hebrew Roots Movement. In my opinion, using the names G-d and L-rd is a compromise.
    I am looking for a Torah group in the East of Pretoria which does not compromise the Name of Elohim and which teaches pure Torah. Many thanks.
    Charl @ 0833104616

    • John says:

      I notice on the map that there is a group in your area. Please feel free to contact them and/or let us know if you find more groups.

      Shalom Charl,
      We are a English speaking family in Pretoria East and study the weekly Torah portion. We are in Covenant with YHVH and because of this fact we are striving towards full Torah observance and implementation of all the relevant Covenant Instructions of Torah. The Temple has not yet been established in Jerusalem and some of the Torah Instructions concerning The Temple service are not for this time, this is a very condensed guideline to how we study and live, you are more than welcome to join us.

    Good Day. My name is Riccardo. I live in Mitchell’s Plain and currantly attending the United Reform church of M/Plain (Dutch Reform). I’m 40 years of age and am in search of a bible believing church. Please help?! 084 522 7677 or 021 371 4574

    • John says:

      Hi Riccardo

      Nice to hear from someone so close by. Most churches believe they are “Bible believing” but, as the saying goes, the proof of the pudding lies in the eating. There is a growing number of people today who, like yourself, have a keen desire to return to the Biblical or Scriptural lifestyle and belief. The reason why the majority of these people are looking out for a bible believing church, is exactly because they have seen and experienced things in their own churches that are not in line with what is taught in Scriptures. Please contact us again or pay us a visit – all details with regards to our services, etc, may be found on this website. At the moment I do not have any details of a fellowship in your immediate vicinity that I can recommend unconditionally.

  34. Sias Fourie says:

    Hello John.
    Ek noem nou maar jou naam, ek bly op die oomblik in Marina Da Gama, maar trek binnekort na Gordonsbaai. Stuur asb maar vir my ook die begin items.
    Jy weet nie dalk wanneer die vertaalde aens vanaf Aramees na Engels hier in Suid Afrika beskikbaar sal raak nie, ek sal graag daarvan in die hande wil kry.

    • John says:

      Lekker om weer van jou te hoor, Sias. Ek sal graag persoonlik per epos met jou wil kontak maak, maar net vlugtig in antwoord op jou vraag oor die “AENS”. Ek lei af jy praat van die AENT, The Aramaic English New Testament. Heelwat mense in Suid Afrika het ‘n kopie van hierdie baie insiggewende boek, maar sover ek weet moet mens dit maar van oorsee af bestel – of een van dié plekke. Miskien is daar iemand wat hier lees wat meer besonderhede het.

  35. Sanette says:

    Ek wil graag by n groepie aansluit in die Uitenhage/Despatch omgewing.
    Ek het op n tyd met n Madeleine kontak gehad, ek dink sy daar in die Kaap area gebly, maar ek het van werk verander en als het verlore geraak.

  36. Barend (Ben) Stander says:

    Baie interessant om al die pos te lees. Leer alke dag meer en bly steeds soekend na die waarheid van die Woord.

    • Barend (Ben) Stander says:

      John en wil graag Woord en Getuies bestel en wil ook weet of dit in engels beskikbaar is. Dan wil ek ook DVD’s bestel wat jy sal aanbeveel wat my en my vrou sal laat groei in die waarheid, ook musiek om te speel wanneer ons met die skrif besig is.

Ek sal dit baie waardeer indien enige iemand dalk kan help.

    Is daar iemand in Klerksdorp wat my kan help met”Hebrew”. Ek is tans besig om dit te bestudeer want ek sal graag die Bybel wil lees in Hebreeus. Op die oomblik is dit soos n berg voor my want sekerlik is dit n onbegonne taak om als by jouself te probeer doen. Ek het al n bietjie woordeskap wat ek gereeld oefen en ook die alfabet neer geskryf. Ek het al die Bybel bestudeer en verstaan Daniel se profesiee en Openbaring is awesome. Dit is hoekom ek Hebreeus wil leer want dit sal die Bybel letterlik laat lewe.

    We are a messianic fellowship group based in Rynfield Benoni. Our fellowship is called, Edat beit Shalom, we are at 5 Newby street, Rynfield. We get together on wednesday evenings from 7 pm – 8 30pm, we are currently studying the book of Kings and we also get together on Shabbat (Saturday) mornings, from 9.45am – 12pm, where we are studying the book of Romans.

    Our Fellowship is based on the fact that Torah is G.d’s instruction and that Yeshua Ha Mashiach(Jesus the Messiah) taught us to keep it. So we are a Torah based Bible study that focuses on setting the Bible in context, culture and place, so we can understand and then follow His instructions as talmidim (disciples) should.

    If anyone feels they need help in this area, we would be more than happy to help.

  61. Suzette Broekman says:


    I phoned the number in Pretoria and the services is on a Sunday. Why is this? What about Shabbat on a Saturday?

      Hi Suzette

      The name of our fellowship is Elim Ministries, Fish Hoek. We do not have a branch in Pretoria and our services are always on Shabbat (Saturday).

  62. Amelda van Heerden says:

    Het jy dalk vir my navorsings dokumente oor Galasiers en al die ander skrifte wat hul die christene wil gebruik om te se ons is nie onder die Torah nie asb John?

    • John says:

      Hi Amelda

      Jammer ek antwoord so laat. Die onderwerp wat jy aangeraak het, is ‘n wesenlike een en ons het in die verlede dikwels daaroor gepraat en geskryf, maar nie juis in die vorm van een of twee dokumente wat die hele onderwerp dek nie. Ek wil jou aanraai om soekwoorde (in Afrikaans en Engels) in die “Search Box” op ons webblad in te sleutel en te kyk wat daar uitgeskop word. Jy kan woorde soos “galasiërs” en “galatians” probeer, maar ook “onder die wet”, “romeine 14”, “rein en onrein”, “unclean foods”, “die wet vervul”, ensovoorts. Hoop dit help so ‘n bietjie …

    This is an amazing site, thank you! I am looking for a torah group / people to fellowship with in Pietermaritzburg / Durban area? We do have a small informal group in Pietermaritzburg, where we meet usually every second Monday, but it would still be great to connect to other believers of Yahusha in the area! Even in ballito, as I’m often there on weekends.

    • Ruan Nothnagel says:

      Hi Jessica


      Do you still have the study group in Pietermaritzburg? Did you find another in pmb/dbn? We are in pmb and interested to find a fellowship..

  67. Lizandi says:

    goeie middag John,

    ek wil graag uitvind van n Torah groep in Pta Doornpoort Montana area as daar een is?

    my ma en broer het 5 maande terug by een in welkom aangesluit en dit wat hulle my vertel is mind blowing ek wil so graag ook deel wees en leer van die waarheid.

    kan jy my dalk help groot asb?



    • John says:

      Jy sal hierbo sien dat daar in die verlede ‘n paar groepe naby aan jou bymekaar gekom het.  Ek plaas jou bydrae hier met die hoop dat groepe of individue wat op die oomblik in jou omgewing is, sal reageer.  Baie sterkte op hierdie nuwe, opwindende geloofspad!

  68. Rob says:

    “….We are not talking about Jewish communities or any of the traditional forms of Judaism, or Christianity for that matter. This is about believers in Y’shua the Messiah, among the nations of the world, who have all made the “surprising” discovery that the Torah is part and parcel of their lifestyle and belief as followers of Messiah….”

    Ek vind dat groepe nader aan die Jew-ISH beweeg, en dat indien jy nie Jesayah 53[Isaiah53] in hul ” TORAH PARASHOT FOR THE SCRIPTURAL YEAR” kry nie …….dan moet jy weet !

    Pas op dat julle nie van die een sloot na die ander oorhel nie.

    Groete in ons Messias naam Yahshua.

  69. Jeffrey Le Fleur says:

    Is this ministry for whites only?

  70. Louise Nelson says:

    Shalom. Our family have been celebrating Sabbath for a few years. We watch teachings every Sabbath. Eager to meet others in Ballito.

    • John says:

      Hi Louise.  Good to hear about Sabbath-keepers in Ballito!  I trust that someone in your area will read this and make contact.  In the meantime, please feel free to make use of whatever you find useful on our site.  Also keep in mind that we have a standing invitation for believers to join us via Skype, every Shabbat  at 4 pm.  This has developed into something very special over the past couple of years and is a wonderful opportunity to join hands with like-minded believers from many different locations in our country, and even abroad.

  97. Magrie says:

    Goeie dag,

    Daar is so baie wat ek het om te leer en weet eerlik waar nie hoe om te begin nie. Ek is van plan om jul Bybel aan te skaf. Ek is jammer as my vrae dom is maar om mee te begin.

    Hoe lees mens die Bybel? Bebin jy voor en lees reg deur?

    Ek het nou tot insig gekom dat die sabbat om ‘n Saterdag en nie Sondag is. My dogter se werk vereis van haar om Saterdae te werk, hoe nou gemaak? Dis wat die industrie waarin sy is vereis.

    Ek het gesien dat daar baie feeste is waaraan ons moet deelneem, ek weet niks hiervan af. Waar kan ek meer inligting kry in verband hiermee asb?

    Is daar dalk groepe wat bymekaar kom in die Centurion area? Soos ek reeds genoem het voel ek oorweldig en het baie om te leer.

    Ek en my man was wel groot gedoop, ons was jare lank deel van die AGS/Methodist kerke. Ek wil dinge reg doen, Vader is groot en het my man gered natat hy 7 keer geskiet was in 2000. Ek wil seker maak dat ons alles moontlik doen soos van ons verwag word. Baie dankie vir al jul plasings, ek gaan deur alles werk.

    • John says:

      Hi Magrie

      Ek is bly jy het hier geskryf! Ek gaan kortliks probeer antwoord, maar jy is welkom om agterna wéér te reageer.

      Om die Skrif van voor af te lees, is ‘n goeie idee, veral as mens voorheen nie juis uit die Ou Verbond gelees het nie. Jy sal sien dat ons hier op ons webblad ook ‘n Torah leesrooster plaas wat mens as riglyn kan gebruik.

      Die Shabbat-en-werk probleem is nie maklik nie en jy kan gerus gaan kyk onder “E-mails received” hierbo na vorige soortgelyke vrae en die antwoorde daarop.

      Hier is ook heelwat inligting oor die feeste op ons webblad.  My voorstel is dat jy woorde en begrippe soos “huttefees”, “Pesag”, “Shavuot” en “Yom Kippur” in die “Search Box” hieronder invoer en dan die artikels lees wat voorgestel word.

      Ek het nie persoonlike kontak met groepe in Centurion nie, maar op die kaart hierbo is daar besonderhede van sommige gelowiges naby aan Centurion met wie jy in aanraking kan kom.

      Meeste van ons het in die verlede gemeen die groot vraag rondom die doop is bloot of dit besprinkeling of groot doop moet wees. By nadere ondersoek sien ‘n mens egter dat dit ook belangrik is in wie se Naam ‘n mens gedoop word. Dit is duidelik dat die formule van Mat 28:19 (“in die Naam van die Vader en die Seun en die Heilige Gees”) nie die gebruik van die vroeë gelowiges verteenwoordig nie en dat almal in die Handelinge periode “in die Naam van Y’shua die Messias” gedoop is.

    • John says:

      Dis ‘n groot leemte dat daar nie baie opsies ten opsigte van formele skoling/opleiding in die Torah met ‘n Messiaanse perspektief in Suid Afrika is nie.  Persoonlik sou ek nie aanbeveel om hierdie soort opleiding of studie-hulp by ‘n Yeshiva of suiwer Joodse instansie te gaan soek nie.  Tot my spyt kan ek dus nie vir jou ‘n bevredigende antwoord of oplossing gee nie.  Jy is egter baie welkom om so ‘n studie self aan te pak en soveel keer as wat jy wil, op ons nommer druk om te help met moontlike knelvrae.  Sterkte!

  109. Jeff says:
