Two Week Camp - July 5 thru 19

This page contains many photos of the Camp Shoshanah Messianic Bible Study Camp taken during 2008. When we identify people, it will be by first name only, other than for teachers. While the main purpose of Camp is the study of the Scriptures from a Jewish frame of reference, leading to our being better disciples of the Messiah, we always manage to have a lot of Kosher fun, and these photos mainly show the fun!  We would love to add your special 2008 Camp photo to these pages, just send a clear scan of it as a .jpg to us. Address all e-mails to:  Mottel  @  MessiahNJ. org  (just remove the spaces in the address)

Some of those who attended the first week of Camp - July 9, 2008

Messianic Jewish Bible camp 2008
Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum explains an important passage in the Book of Exodus.

About a third of the students were from outside the USA. Here, a couple from New Zealand at left talk with some friends from Quebec, Canada.

Leading worship, Dennis does Mandolin, Betsy sings and Mottel plays an Em chord and sings into a fancy-schmancy microphone.

Is there a future member of the New Zealand Parliament here?
Teresa, Beth, Helen, Mac, Alison, Bryan & Laura - Kiwi Pride !!

Simon & his daughters found the teen at left wandering in the woods. They named him Michael and plan to adopt him unless he's claimed by someone

Gravity defying girls

The Proverbs 31 Dad keeps the swing going

The Camp Shoshanah ad-hoc chorus

Second week of 2 week Bible Camp, 2008

Dennis picks the Mandolin, Music Director Simon tickles the ivories and Betsy sings like an angel, an Alto Angel !

messianic children's camp 2008
They thought they would go up front to sing, get rewarded with
some Hanukah Gelt, only to learn that it's July. Gevald.

Seems like everyone at Camp plays Guitar !

Trust me, they were singing.

Michael and Arlie each have distinctive Kippas

Conversation around the Shabbos table

Demonstrating the Tallit and Tefillin as described in the Torah

Mottel Baleston Arnold Fruchtenbaum Randy Shapiro
Messianic Jewish Teachers Mottel Baleston, Arnold Fruchtenbaum & Randy Shapiro take a break to smile for the camera, then went back to their scholarly discussion on the relative merits of Potato Knishes versus Kasha Knishes .

Where else in the world could a Messianic Rabbi from Denver and a Hospital Administrator from New Zealand  happily fellowship for weeks?

This is either a 'Walk thru the Bible' demo  OR  the kids doing the cheer: "Two Bagels, Two Smears, Two Bucks"

Mottel Baleston Jeff Gutterman Randy Shapiro

Mottel, Jeffrey & Randy sing traditional Shabbos songs. They were so well received, they've decided to form a group. Help them choose a name:

1. Three Tenths of a Minyan
2. Groovin' Yuden
3. Messianic Mishagos
