Visit the School of Jewish Studies website

Location: Marine Reach Training

Focus: Jewish studies

The purpose of the School of Jewish Studies is for equipping YWAMers with tools for relevant ministry among the Jewish people both in Israel and around the world. We also have a passion to have God’s heart for all the Peoples of the Middle East and seek to teach YWAMers how to have a “two eyed vision” (His eyes and heart for all peoples in the Middle East). Our aim and passion is to raise up long-term Christian workers to go equipped and energised with a passion to serve long-term in the Middle East. Tauranga, New Zealand, where we will be hosting the school, is literally the furthest place in the world you can get from Jerusalem and we believe that it is in New Zealand’s prophetic destiny to reach out to the centre of the earth from the ENDS of the Earth. Would you join us, and be equipped, discipled, and set on fire for the Jewish World and the Middle East?

Teaching subjects may include:
* Jewish history, culture, religion, & the land of Israel

* Relationship between the Church & the Jewish people, Jewish/Gentile issues in the New Testament

* Introduction to Hebrew
