What does the Church teach about Messianic Jews?

Hello All,
Greetings and God Bless!

Is there an existing Catholic response the dogma of the Messianic Jews or “Jews for Jesus”? They claim that when Jesus fulfilled the Law he did not abolish it, and that observant Christians should keep Torah including Kosher, Jewish Feast Days and the original Sabbath. Some of them hold that the Pentateuch is a more defining doctrine than any New Testament books and thus have a warped view on traditional Christology and do not prescribe to Trinitarian doctrine.

Here are a few of these ministries that I have friends or family involved in; Rosh Pinah, Lion and Lamb, and Unlearn.
