WHO WE ARE
Zion Bible Studies provides Bible studies and services for the growing numbers of Christian believers who feel drawn to reconnect with Jewish Biblical teachings, which they value as essential wellsprings of Christianity, upon which its founders based themselves. Simply put, they wish to study the Hebrew Bible from its original, Hebraic perspective.
We at Zion Bible Studies respect their desire, by such bonding, to deepen their relationships, as Christians, with God. Zion Bible Studies was established as a subsidiary of Yeshivath Sharashim — a Web-based educational venture to engage users worldwide in a deepening understanding of the Hebrew Bible and other religious classics — to assist them.
Rabbi Chaim Eisen
Rabbi Chaim Eisen is the founder and dean of Yeshivath Sharashim – Zion Bible Studies. He is also a senior rabbinical lecturer in adult education at the Orthodox Union Jerusalem World Center, where he has taught for over 36 years. An acclaimed speaker, he has been stimulating audiences throughout Israel, North America, and Europe for three and a half decades. Over the past two decades, he has become increasingly involved in “building bridges” with Christian believers, through lectures and informal meetings in Israel, North America, and Europe, and via the Internet.
More generally, Rabbi Eisen advocates a dialogue of Jews and Christians mutually respecting their differences while affirming that more unites them, through devotion to the God of the Bible and dedication to His word that they both love and revere. He believes it is imperative for all people to bond together now to do God’s holy work as He charges us. He prays that all men and women of faith may stand “shoulder to shoulder” (Zephaniah 3:9), in joint efforts, readying the earth for God’s “great and awesome day” (Joel 3:4 and Malachi 3:23), speedily, in our days.
