With the start of 2013, The Friends of Israelmarks its 75th anniversary as an organization and its Institute of Jewish Studies has begun another year of providing Biblically grounded education about God’s Word, His plan of salvation for the Jewish people, and what the Bible says will happen in future eras.

“As The Friends of Israel marks its 75th year as an organization, we are humbled to begin another year of teaching God’s Word and Biblical prophecy to people,” said Clarence Johnson, Director of The Friends of Israel’s Institute of Jewish Studies. “As The Institute has developed as an outreach of The Friends of Israel, we have been blessed to be able to move to an online format that allows us to serve students with solid teaching that is based in the Bible and honors God’s plans for and use of the Jewish nation as His Chosen people. I look forward to the impact that the Institute can have in peoples’ lives in the days ahead, as the Lord allows.”

Topics covered in the Spring I semester range from prophecy to Biblical Studies to current events taught from a Biblical perspective. Courses for the first spring semester include:

  • Between the Testaments
  • The Promised Land for a Chosen People
  • Messianic Prophecies
  • The Middle East Conflict
  • The Tabernacle: Shadows of the Messiah

The Institute of Jewish Studies began in 1986 on the campus of The Friends of Israel’sinternational headquarters in southern New Jersey. Conceived as a one-year Bible study program with a strong emphasis on studying the Bible in its historical and cultural context, the program emphasized a proper understanding of the Jewish people and the land of Israel as essential to recognizing the plan and purposes of God.

In 2009, IJStransitioned to online-only classes, providing the same, high-quality education provided on campus for 23 years to students around the world at an affordable cost. The curriculum is structured to provide a diverse offering of courses with a unique Jewish emphasis.
