Announcing the MJTI Lifelong Learning Center

Announcing MJTI’s new Lifelong Learning Centre!

MJTI is excited to announce the launch of its newest venture into education; the Lifelong Learning Centre for adult Messianic Jewish community education. The Lifelong Learning Centre celebrates and fosters a love for learning from a Messianic Jewish perspective for all who wish to continue the pursuit of knowledge and study without a large commitment of time or finances, or the desire to complete a degree. The Centre seeks to inspire engagement with Scripture, Jewish thought and tradition, the Jewish People, and the Messianic Jewish Community. Our goals are to:

1. Provide adult education that adds value to the broader Messianic Jewish Community through practical courses, lectures, webinars, etc. that are easily accessible and personally meaningful and satisfactory;
2. Impart the hows and whys of Jewish life renewed in Yeshua;
3. Examine a wide range of Scripture and apply those principles to life;
4. Integrate biblical knowledge and theology with practical Messianic Jewish ministry skills;
5. Provide a knowledge of Messianic Jewish history, theology and practice;
6. Cultivate a sense of personal Jewish identity or attachment to the Jewish People;
7. Create lovers and allies of the Jewish people.
8. A variety of platforms will be used to fulfill these goals, such as short courses, series of courses, public lectures, webinars, online conferences, and discussion groups. All will be offered at a variety of levels, venues and times: a drip (daily 15 minute classes); a drizzle (two 30-minute weekly classes); a drop (weekly one-hour courses lasting four to six weeks, such as MJTI’s Panim-El-Panim classes); and a dive (Torah and text study or interactive classes requiring preparation).

The Lifelong Learning Centre will be launched on August 1, 8:00 pm EDT in a webinar “Live to Learn; Learn to Live.” Jonathan Bernis will be the keynote speaker. There is no cost for the webinar; donations are welcome. Mark your calendars and save the date.

Come join Jonathan Bernis and MJTI as we celebrate the launch of the new Lifelong Learning Centre for Adult Messianic Jewish Community Education!

When Stuck Between a Rock and a Hard Place…

It is incredible how quickly we can go from the mountaintop of joy to the swampy marshland of depression! At such times we must step out in faith, trusting that HaShem will honor his word, his promise.

A Reflection on Divine Authority

On the one hand, knowing that we have a faithful God is incredibly reassuring! On the other hand, accepting His authority over our lives is incredibly difficult. Rabbi Michael Hillel shares his insights from a recent Bible study on Luke 20:1-8 and how Yeshua’s authority manifests across several Biblical narratives.

The Story Behind the Posner Menorah

You may have seen the iconic photo of a Hanukkah menorah defiantly in the window across from a Nazi flag. For the Hanukkah edition of This Month in Jewish History, Dr. Stan Meyer shares the story behind the photo and how it still touches our lives today.

Light Over Might

Hanukkah is about fighting for political autonomy and religious freedom… right? With our contemporary values, it can actually be difficult to examine the Hanukkah narrative to understand some of the more challenging elements. Rabbi Paul Saal takes a look.

Vayeshev: The Winding Road to Messiah

There are many injustices in the story of Joseph, from his father’s favoritism provoking his brothers’ violent jealousy to the cupbearer forgetting Joseph in prison. How are we supposed to feel in the face of disappointment? Rabbi Elliot Klayman breaks down this week’s parasha.

Favor Elevates Its Giver

After the drama of Jacob stealing Esau’s birthright and blessing—and then absconding to Paddan-aram for 20 years—this week’s parasha sees Jacob having to reunite with his estranged brother. What can this surprising moment of reconciliation show us about our relationships today?

Vayeitzei: The Continuing Journey

The patriarchal narrative continues in this week’s parasha, Vayeitzei (Genesis 28:10 – 32:3). We find Jacob on his way tp Haran, seemingly in an attempt to get away from his justifiably-angry elder twin brother Esau, after Jacob had stolen Esau's blessing from their...

November, 1880: Sholem Asch, the Jewish author, was born. Dr. Stan Meyer takes a look at his life and the impact he still has on our world today.

The Path Behind and the Road Ahead: A New Journey

The High Holidays are behind us for another year. We have travelled God’s way in those marathon weeks, and it may be tempting for us to settle back into a comfortable, mindless rhythm until Chanukah starts at the end of November. However, from shofar blowing and...
