    I am interested in your course, please let me know the price and I will consider. I have already enrolled in 2 Hebrew classed online and not kept to them which has been costly.

    1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

      It should be known in few weeks.

    Hello, Dr. Eli, I am most interested in the course starting in February. My problem is that I am already attending Conversational Hebrew 2 and Biblical Hebrew A. I’m afraid it would be too much load for the mind and sure that it will be too much effort for my purse. Is there any hope that you will be offering the texts also later, so that whoever, like myself, is interested but already overstretched at present, can buy them later, at their economical convenience? I live in Italy, where taxes take away more than 75% of our income.
    Anyway, thank you for the splendid activities you’re carrying on!

    This sounds like something I’d really like to do. I’ve spent the last several years at the University of Queensland, studying a Bachelor of Arts, with my focus on the Studies in Religion stream. Unfortunately, there is no Jewish content (there even seems to be an ant-Jewish bias in the School).

    I’ve completed Level Aleph through eTeacher Biblical, and learned quite a lot about Orthodox Judaism as currently practised. But I want more! I want to gain some understanding of the differences between current Rabbinic Judaism and the Judaism of the Second Temple period. This seems to fit my needs.

    Only problem is, I may not be able to participate, as I’m on a government pension (I’n 66, will be 67 by the time this starts), so I probably won’t be able to afford it. Oh well, if it be G-d’s will that I study this, something will turn up. I’d also like to continue with the Hebrew, but the same problems there too. 🙁

    1. Paula Maybery

      Hello Dr. Eli… I would love to be part of this course in February. I have done A and B Biblical Hebrew, wanted to do C it was too expensive this year. Like so many people in the group I love being a part of like minded people searching for our roots in yeshua. It will depend how much it will costs hopefully we will find out soon. I am sure it is going to be a fabulous time of learning and as always Gods blessing be with you…paula maybery.

      1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

        Paula, while I don’t yet know for sure about the price that eTeacherBiblical will assign to it. I am confident it will be 50% less expensive than current Biblical Hebrew course of any level. Dr. Eli

  4. Linda Fentner

    Dr. Eli, Does this mean you are no longer having a free Study Group? I am already taking Biblical Hebrew and I am not at liberty to spend anymore for additional classes at this time. I do not want to go into specifics here but could personally at another time. I love this group and sorry to lose it.
    Toda raba for all the lessons so far. Let me know about all future adventures.

    1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

      Linda, what you had here on this blog will continue free of charge! The new course via video conferencing will have a tuition.

      1. Linda Fentner

        I am so glad , toda raba for keeping the blog. When my finances are in good standing I will be able to take your class with Eteacher. I really do so much with them now!
        Have a Happy Chanukka! Baruch atah, Adonai Elheinu.

  5. Keziah Gyang

    I will like to enrol

  6. Dolores Luthi

    After reading all the comments, I am all the more interested. I really want to immerse myself into the Judeo-christian culture, and as a believer in Yeshua, I am eager to learn more and be completely rooted in Him especially since our world has gotten to be so anti-God and anti-semitic.

  7. Kusam

    Thanks for the information of the study. I think it will be valuable for my own study. I like to enroll in this course.

  8. Stephen Raftery

    I would be interested in knowing more.
    I am a gentile believer in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and I would be fascinated to learn more of the Jewish origins of my faith

  9. John Steedy Chunga

    I opt in. The God of Israel is Awesome. In our time we will reconnect with original Jewish way of worship. Worship that was originally intended for mankind before distortions. I want to believe that these studies will bring to the fore so much insight into Biblical revelations. Our God is Great. Yeshua is Great.

  10. david

    desde Chile cordial shalom Dr….me programare para ver cursos .!!

  11. Natã Gomes

    This is an awesome initiative.
    I hope I’ll be able to participate.

    May God help you in this quest.

  12. Andrew More

    I am very excited about this upcoming course on Jewish Studies for Christians. I have great respect for Dr. Lizorkin-Eyzenberg and his commitment to opening the veil that stands between these two religious traditions. I am sure that this course will be rewarding to all who participate, and I hope that it will further the conversation about the God we are worship and serve.

  13. José Luis Alvarado G

    Hi, Dr. Eli, I just want to know if you have this course for spanish speakers. Thanks

    1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

      It will be in recorded and daubed version about 3 months from the start of the first English lesson which is February.

  14. Michael McGrath

    Dr. Eli,
    I am unable to access the cost or how to enroll in the course “Introduction to Jewish Studies for Christians (Basic Concepts).

    Thank you for your help.

    Michael McGrath

    1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

      Michael, hi. Stay in touch this information should be out in a month or so.

  15. Mercedes Pascual

    I am interested in enrolling.

  16. Dolores Luthi

    I am not sure what they mean by Website. I have an iMac and browser I think is what Sahari is called. I am undecided as yet whether to take your course. I am supposed to start a Masters program in January at Liberty University. Having had no academic background in Bible, I wonder if I should maybe take your course? How much will make a difference. Are you acquainted with Friends of Israel? I find your remarks and other remarks very helpful and sometimes even words I look up in the dictionary do not come close to your or others clarification of what I am looking for in words. I look forward to hearing what tuition is or your advice in signing up. Dolores

  17. Michele Uhrle

    I am so grateful to Dr Eli for his generosity in teaching the Jewish studies for Christians.
    I have always felt like something was missing from my understanding, and those gaps are now being filled.

    Thank you so much

    1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

      Michele, welcome to our study group. Blessings and much peace, Dr. Eli

  18. RamonAntonio

    Well, I thought I have almost read everything in this posts but every once in a while we get surprised. A new contributor who is a man of science, a presbyterian and a geologist… all in the same God loving package! And he even loves the Jewish heritage and is proud to say it!
    Well, after all, Dr. Eli, your search to unite us in a single effort to quest for God and Jesus is indeed making a great concoction.
    So be very welcome Dr. PEreira, I look forth to your insight and comments from so a vast and ample background which you will discover soon is not a knot that ties you but a rope which we all may eventually have to grasp united.
    And remember, most of this started with an unknown stone altar builder who was called by God to start a really long trip to an unknown land. In the way he, Abram, built 4 altars. Then he taught his sons to continue building altars wherever they got. And Jewish tradition is deeply an unequivocally tied to the location of those altars that Abraham and his descendants built… Not bad for an apprentice geologist… Maybe you should give us light in this kind of geology…

  19. Paulo Pereira Martins Junior, Dr.Sc.T.

    Dear Professors

    I am a man of science. In my childhood my education was in a Presbyterian church and I recieved a strong theological education.

    As a geologist (Dr.Sc,T) I have a lot of restrictions to many views from many biblical contexts. Contrarywise I live my life with a deep loving experience towards GOD – a paradoxe ?!?

    Also I love the Jewish heritage anda I greet you for this opportunity.


    1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

      Welcome to the group, Dr. Pereira The Book of Creation and the Book of Scripture has one and the same ultimate Author :-). What is a paradox if not apparent contradiction?! Dr. Eli

  20. Louis Cladder

    Very interesting. I am looking forward more info about the lessons and costs and subscription.

  21. Emosi Tuinabewa

    BULA VINAKA! I’m from FIJI and would like to know, how much is the tuition?

  22. Maureen Harrison

    Thank you for the offer. It sounds a great course.
    I have been studying much of that material over the last 70 years. At the moment I’m just concentrating on the Biblical Hebrew, now level B, is enough for me. Anything else is always acceptable but only as a byway. I really enjoy learning anything about Messiah, especially as is shown throughout the Torah and the Tanach so that we know and recognize Him. Academic accreditation is not what I am aiming at. What I learn and have learnt, I share freely, now over many years, that others may come to know and find faith in the Name that is above every other Name, Yeshua H’Meshiach ,B’ Shem Adonai.

    Interesting design. Reminds me of some antique Roman bath floors recently uncovered.
    The design, the colors… Only the snakes are missing… Just add water, a robe and an invalid in turn…
    And then Jesus might show up again…

  24. James J. DeFrancisco

    Dr. Eli,

    Very exciting. Excellent curricullum for this much needed course of study. Keep me informed of progress as this course develops.

  25. Ester Blomerus

    I love it and would like to participate. Thanks for your prompt feedback! Would love to know the starting date.

  26. Mädeli C

    I would be very interested in doing this study with you, Dr. Eli and as eTeacher is still inpossession of the tuition fees I paid for a Hebrew course, which they seem to be reluctant to have me reregister for (as I could never do it due to an insufficient internet connection at the time of the course), I am wondering if those fees (a total of $800+), could rather be applied to registration for your course/s?

    1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

      I think it can be arranged. Please, ask me to help with this in Dec. when enrollment will start. Dr. Eli

  27. Gaea Singer

    Love the opportunity, and I thank you for all your efforts Dr. Eli. I also thank eteacherwebinar for their cooperation with you.

    I am going to contact them to find out the price,, because I could not find out the tuition cost or the 50% of cost.


  28. Jenny Wells

    Dear Dr. Lizorkin,

    Why do we merely focus on defining the leadership of first century Judaism as divided between the Pharisees and the Sadducees … why is there so little teaching about the divisions between the Pharisees themselves?

    Thank you.

    1. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg

      Jenny, there many reasons I think. One reason is that people teaching on first century do not have a strong background in Rabbinics (we are talking about specialist even like myself). Some do, but it is very rear. Second reason is that Rabbinical materials are questionable sources by definition. They are late and had a lot of editing through the ages, so we don’t know what is early and what is late. In other words they historically unreliable materials. More over the Rabbinic materials do not presume that pharisees are “the fathers so to speak” of the future rabbis. The materials have a lot of criticisms towards pharisees. So it is complicated and complex. Let’s keep on thinking together on this, OK? Dr. Eli
