Although some Messianic Jews are ethnically Jewish, and argue that Messianic Judaism is a sect of Judaism, the various streams of Judaism are unanimous in their rejection of Messianism as a form of Judaism, and both Christians and Jews consider Messianic Judaism to be a form of Christianity.Initially and historically Jews who accepted Jesus as the Jewish messiah were termed Christians or Hebrew Christians. Today they are generally tought of as Messianic Jews; but the understanding of them as such can get rather complicated, especially since it's estimated that as much as 80-90% of membership in Messianic Judaism is comprised of non-ethnic Gentile Christians, and both religious and non-religious Jews generally have a very strong negative reaction toward both Jews for Jesus and Messianic Judaism.
Still, it's perhaps the best option open to you, as a Christian, in seeking to integrate Jewish tradition with Christian faith in the upbringing of you son. If you're in the Houston area, it offers several Messianic congregations, which may prove beneficial to visit. Here are a few of their official websites: Congregation Beth Messiah, Bat-Tzion, Beth Yeshua HaMasiach. Both Jews for Jesus and Messianic Judaism are facing some interesting challenges and crossroads on matters of practice and theology, so I'd advise doing some homework before jumping in. But many Christians in regular congregations are enjoying a re-connectivity with the Jewish roots of Christianity, and reevaluations of such are indeed offering some very beneficial perspectives to main-stream Christianity.
