Hasn't happened yet. Jews do not pray in churches; and messianic Jews (who have churches) are actually fully Christian, both according to Judaism and according to Christianity.

A Jewish house of worship is called a synagogue. Jews always worshiped in synagogues, even when the Holy Temple stood. Even within the Temple premises, there were several synagogues. During the Second Temple era, ancient Greek authors attest to the large synagogues that stood in all the countries where Jews lived. . In First Temple times also, synagogues served the same function (of daily prayer and study) that they do today (Talmud, Megillah 26b and Berakhot 31a).See also the Related Links.

There is no such thing as a "Jewish church." The Jewish religion is not referred to as a church, and does not have that level of strict organization.

A Jewish house of worship is called a synagogue, and Israel has had synagogues for millennia in Israel. The first one is not known. synagogues are autonomous, and not connected to each other in the form of a "church."
In ancient times, the Jews had one holy Temple in Jerusalem, which was first built around 1000 BCE, where animal sacrifices were performed according to the Torah. When the Romans destroyed in the year 70, Jews shifted toward a greater focus on study and prayer.
