Camp Shoshanah is a Messianic Jewish Bible study program open to all believers in Yeshua. 1974 was our first year, and the Lord has blessed and grown the Camp. This page contains MANY photos of the Camp Shoshanah Messianic Bible Study Camp taken during 2018. 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 often show the fun!

The core purpose of the Ariel Ministries Messianic Bible Study Program at Camp Shoshanah is the the teaching of the Scriptures from their original Jewish
frame of reference, for the purpose of making mature disciples of Jesus the Messiah. Some weeks schedule 4 hours of classes per day, others 5 and a half!

Classes are taught by Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum, and other skilled Messianic teachers, Mottel Baleston is seen above.

Dr. Richard Hill leads a Messianic congregation in Nevada, and is one of the instructors at Camp Shoshanah

Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum is a Jewish believer in Messiah Jesus, an internationally known Bible scholar and the founder of the program.
He teaches two or more Bible classes each day, and is always ready to answer questions after class.

Music, Praise & Worship begins each class at Camp

Each Wednesday evening after classes, a Talent Show is held

Some young men sing praise at the Talent Show. Dress code was simple: Black shirt, Denim pants. - Footwear: "Come as you are"
