Rabbi Barry Rubin used to joke that the 50 families in his congregation were like the wandering Jews of the Old Testament. For five years, since the Emmanuel Messianic Jewish Congregation sold its temple off Liberty Road in Baltimore County, the congregation had been without a home, meeting at various churches in Howard County. The Rev. George Sebek, pastor of Oak Ridge Community Church, was wandering, too. For the past four years, his congregation of about 300 had been meeting at Wilde Lake Middle School.
