CAMP SHOSHANAH PHOTOS - 2017 - preliminary, more pics to come

This page has photos of the Camp Shoshanah Messianic Bible Study Program taken during Summer 2017. The main purpose of Camp is the study of the Scriptures from the original Jewish frame of reference leading to being mature disciples of Messiah Yeshua.
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.

Instructor John Kanter was brought up in the Jewish community of Los Angeles and served in leadership of a Messianic Congregation in Texas

Before every Bible teaching class we sing 2 songs of worship led by a team of students

Between classes there's plenty of  time for fellowship & discussion, questions & answers
