Messianic Bible Discipleship Program in New York at Shoshanah Campus, Summer 2021

- The Ariel Ministries Messianic Bible Study Program at Shoshanah Campus 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 Bible Study Program taken during 2021. While the main purpose of Camp is the study of the Scriptures from a Jewish frame of reference for the purpose of making mature disciples of Jesus the Messiah, we always manage to have a lot of Kosher fun, and these photos often show the fun!
2021 was a "bounce-back" year after being closed due to Covid in 2020. So while the program usually averages about 55 adult students each week, with many Canadian & International students, with the borders still closed this year we averaged 18 to 20.

You can't have Shabbos without music, so the team of Mandolin Mark & Maven Mottel
provided a few vintage Messianic tunes, cause they're vintage themselves
