Words cannot express all the benefits joining the Shuva have provided to my personal and ministry life. The courses are intense, but well worth time and effort and new dimensions of looking at the Word have been opened through prayer and study. I strongly recommend the Shuva to all who want a deeper understanding in the original context of the Bible, relationship with G-d and living out our purpose and calling.

Thank God that I found Yeshivat Shuvu, I just have been here three months, but I already started picking up and learning so many things about the Hebrew language, the Bible, and Messiah in Hebrew thought, and getting a solid foundation of Torah and Messianic Judaism. Rabbis are so knowledgeable, care about their students, and their spiritual growth & make great efforts on the program.

Shalom, I’m David Prins and I live in the Netherlands. Last year Yeshivat Shuvu has been a very big support and maintenance for our synagogue Beit Nitzachon. As rabbi of this synagogue, I was able to give a better understanding of our Torah and the understanding of Yeshua as our Messiah in the right framework.

Also, our members were able to make big steps in their personal lives. I have seen this in their family’s in their faith and their works. Also, the book return of the kosher pig helps our synagogue in a lot of things of understanding of our faith.

There is something very special about being a part of Yeshivat Shuvu. I live in a rural area without a messianic community nearby. It can become lonely. Yeshivat Shuvu is like a big family, where, as brothers and sisters, we interact, learn and grow together. We get to know one another as we dialogue via the discussion boards, Facebook, and personal emails, and the Yeshiva directory enables us to get in touch over the phone or even to arrange to meet one another in person as well. The sense of community and the friendships made here mean a great deal to me. Our instructors are accessible and always ready to offer us encouragement and to answer our questions.

Finding out that Messianic Judaism existed was a surprise, and we had no idea what to expect. I wanted to understand my heritage, but not lose Yeshua. I had no idea that would be the tip of an iceberg. My husband soon found out about The Return of the Kosher Pig, and Rabbi Shapira, and Yeshivat Shuvu. The internet is full of dizzying information. It is a blessing to know Rabbis that I can trust to teach and lead us in the right way.

My wife, who is a dedicated Baptist, has always looked at my Messianic beliefs as borderline legalistic. I have been able to show her various Hebrew scriptures and explain to her what the words actually mean. After seven months she is now helping me keep the Shabbat and is open in helping me keep the High Holy Days of HaShem. She has also confessed to me that I need to keep up with my studies because they seem to balance my spicy personality out; overall, my family life is more peaceful since beginning my studies with the Yeshivat Shuvu.

I am truly grateful for our Rabbis! Not only for their scholarship in the Bible and in Judaism but also their love toward G-d and toward us. Yeshivat Shuvu is not a place for knowledge, it is a place to be a disciple, to be challenged and to be supported by the body of Messiah from four comers of the world, literally.

Shalom from Australia. Yeshivat Shuvu has not only been an education for me but a life changing journey that is bringing me closer to HaShem and the Jewish people. The Rabbis here at the yeshiva truly disciple us through many spiritual concepts that those of us from the Nations have either never heard of or understood properly. So much has been lost to us and it is time to be engrafted properly to the Olive Tree, to understand our Jewish Messiah in His Jewish context, and to live our lives according to the Will of HaShem. This is why I am here at Yeshivat Shuvu.

Shuvu is the absolute best most comprehensive messianic study program on the market. The instructors are deep thinkers that challenge you in your studies to move deeper in your understanding of Hebrew, messianic and rabbinical thought. There is no other place you can get this depth off teaching of Messiah Yeshua synthesized with traditional rabbinical training. If you want to take your spiritual knowledge and application to the next level, this is the program for you.

In Yeshivat Shuvu, we are trained and supervised by our Rabbanim to walk our way according to Abraham’s faith, the forefather of the Jewish people and joining the Jewish people in Yeshua the Jewish Messiah. In the testimony video, we are in Shabbat service and singing “Yishmechu”.
