A Messianic Ministry sharing Yeshua the Jewish Messiah in Central Pennsylvania
God hates Anti-Semitism
updated January 12, 2024
|Since 1978 the Messianic Hebrew
Christian Fellowship (MHCF) has shared Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) with the Jewish
Community of Central Pennsylvania. We believe that the Jewish Torah
(Scriptures) promises a Messiah for all the people of the world, both
Jew and Gentile. Yeshua was born as the fulfillment of those Bible
promises. Only through faith in Him is there a way back to God. No
Synagogue, Church or Temple can provide forgiveness of sin, only through
the atonement made by Yeshua can we experience true peace with God.
MHCF was founded by Messianic Rabbi Milton Maiman and his wife Lura in Harrisburg, PA. He had an effective work both in the USA and Israel and was greatly used by God until his home going in 1999. He is fondly remembered by all who were touched by his ministry.
Over the years many individuals, both Jewish and
Gentile, have come to faith in Messiah through the ministry of MHCF. Three
Messianic Congregations were also begun as a result of these ministries,
When Milt & Lura Maiman moved to Israel in the 1990s, MHCF became headed up by Lloyd Elias Scalyer, a Jewish believer in Messiah who was ordained to the ministry in April 1980 and who worked with Milt Maiman for years. The center of operations moved to Lancaster, PA and for years Lloyd, Judith and several volunteers with MHCF continued to serve the areas of Harrisburg, York, Reading, Lititz, Hershey as well as Lancaster through literature distribution, outreach ministries, Bible Study, Passover Seders and the discipling of believers. Working co-operatively with Seed of Abraham Messianic Congregation was a core activity. Their worship services and Bible teaching are held on Saturday mornings in Leola, PA. Increasingly, most of the activity of public witness in Central PA was carried on by Seed of Abraham Congregation.
With declining health, in 2023 Lloyd spoke with the last remaining Board member and expressed his desire to recognize the close of the season that God had for MHCF. Some historical papers were transferred.
Lloyd Elias Scalyer was born in Brooklyn, NY on May 27, 1936. He passed away January 9, 2024, after a brief illness. Son of the late Marc and Ruth (Rogalsky) Scalyer, he was born into a Jewish family, and became a believer in Messiah Jesus in his 30’s. In New York he had been a cement mason, eventually owning a flooring installation company, and he also served in the New York Army National Guard.
In 1968 he
purchased a chicken farm in Lancaster County, and with his family
and in-laws turned it into a highly successful motel, the Cherry
Lane Motor Inn. He was a great businessman, but his true passions
were his family and encouragement by the Scriptures. He was a
long-time elder at Lancaster Evangelical Free Church, and Founder
and Spiritual Leader of the Seed of Abraham Messianic Congregation,
and his family.
