The Ariel Ministries Messianic Jewish Bible Study Program at Camp Shoshanah is open to all believers in Yeshua. 1974 was our first year, and the Lord has blessed and grown the Camp. This page contains photos of the Camp Shoshanah Messianic Bible Study Camp taken during 2019. 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 Bible teachers. Lecture Hall is air-conditioned, rest rooms, wi-fi, the works!

Mottel Baleston was brought up in the Jewish community of New York City,
came to faith in Yeshua at age 21, and has served as a Messianic Rabbi in New Jersey. He has been teaching  at Camp Shoshanah for over 15 years.

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