This page contains photos of the Camp Shoshanah Messianic Bible Study Camp taken during 2011.  While the main purpose of Camp is the study of the Scriptures from a Jewish frame of reference, we always manage to have a lot of Kosher fun, and these photos mainly show the fun!

Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum is a Jewish believer in Messiah Jesus and an internationally known Bible scholar. He teaches two or more
Bible classes each day, and is always happy to answer questions after class. Other instructors teach in their Biblical specialties.

Families often come, there are classes for all ages. They won: "Best Smiles"
