The Store House


John and Karen Banko

The Store House is the Book Store/Gift Shop at Congregation Roeh Israel.  Our mission is to support the Congregation and the Community by offering Judaica and educational materials to encourage people to both understand and practice their heritage and their faith. 


Our goal is to reach out to Jew and Gentile alike.  There is only one true faith, the faith of our fathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  A faith that once pointed forward to, but now points back to the deity and humanity of Yeshua the Messiah and to His work on the cross.


The Store House is open after service on Erev Shabbat (Friday nights) and on Shabbat (Saturday early afternoon).  We would like to have a volunteer staff to help run the store on both Friday and Saturday.  Our goal is to be able to rotate coverage so that our Store House volunteers have some weekends off each month.  Please contact John Banko if you are interested in learning more.


John and Karen Banko are in charge of The Store House.  Please contact John if you have any questions or are interested in getting involved.
