Congregation Sha’arei Shalom Becomes Sanctuary to Messianic Refugees From LA


Cary, NC – Congregation Sha’arei Shalom near Raleigh, North Carolina has opened its doors to Messianics fleeing life in Los Angeles, growing the population of the congregation significantly. What was once a haven for East Coasters, Los Angeles, is now losing its numbers to the East Coast, in a strange turn of events.

“I’m not quite sure why people are leaving L.A. for Raleigh,” says Rabbi Seth Klayman. “It’s probably all that sunshine; it’s so bad for you. After AMF I think everyone assumed it does nothing but rain here. That’s not true, but they’re coming over in droves and our congregation is growing with the best people, so I won’t complain. Our sanctuary has literally become a sanctuary for Southern Californians looking for a new life for their children. And not one of them brought me In-N-Out Burger when they got here.”

Congregation Sha’arei Shalom welcomes peoples from all nations and tongues and not just LA. Please join them for free high holiday services. For more information, visit
