Introducing IJS-Lite Workshops

A New Level of Learning
Designed for the Busy Lives We Live!

IJS-Lite Workshops provide a fresh path to biblical understanding in an online, virtual living-room-style atmosphere. The Friends of Israel’s Institute of Jewish Studies has designed the various Workshops to provide an informative and relaxed overview of a Bible book, topic, or current trend relating to Israel, the Messiah, or prophecy, all under the guidance of The Institute of Jewish Studies faculty.

IJS-Lite Workshops are non-graded. The 3-week online format includes practical, interactive, faith-life lessons; course materials; and thought-provoking discussion questions, which are also easily adapted for use in the local church. Workshops are discussion-based and Bible-centered.

Jerusalem at the Crossroads
