The Israel Study Center is an institute of higher learning located in Israel. The center is dedicated to providing university level, world-class, LIVE, online courses delivered via simple video-conferencing technology by means of clear and engaging communication.
Our courses are prepared in collaboration with internationally known world-class scholars, representing top Israeli and international universities. All our activities are focused in the field of Jewish Studies, particularly in those areas of Jewish Studies that are relevant for modern Christ-followers.
The Israel Study Center seeks to contribute to the betterment of Jewish-Christian relations by providing excellent, effective, affordable and accessible education on topics related to the Jewish people.
The center offers individual courses that are designed to be short, concentrated and affordable; introducing the student to usually unfamiliar and unavailable areas of Jewish Studies. The one-year Certificate in Jewish Context and Culture program covers a wide variety of topics, all of which were carefully selected as being highly relevant for the person seeking to become both a responsible and creative modern interpreter of the sacred texts.
The Israel Study Center partners with the Galilee Center for Jewish-Christian Relations, a research center of the Jezreel Valley Academic College in Northern Israel. This college is one of the largest colleges in Israel that, until gaining its own accreditation, was for many years the northern branch of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, one of Israel’s premier universities.
