New MJTI Schedules

In Featured Articles

Fall classes are starting soon, and we want to see you take some!

From the cantorial program, to foundation courses, to beginning Hebrew, we got it all.

This fall starts the new Graduate Certificate in Cantorial Arts program.  The Cantorial program is a two year program offered to students who are called by God to serve as cantors in Messianic Jewish congregations. Upon completing this program successfully, graduates will earn the title Cantor/Hazzan.  Wouldn’t you like to learn how to chant Torah?  We have a class for that.

The foundation courses offered this quarter are particularly good for those of you who are interested in Jewish roots.

Would you like to learn some Hebrew?  Beginning Hebrew starts this semester as well.

Application and Registration Forms are available at For questions e-mail or call 352.874.7644.
