These lively students from a nearby Jewish yeshiva (religious school) had just finished their prayers at the Western Wall in Old Jerusalem. Bursting with laughter, energy, and good humor, they were just like other boys in other cultures.
As they congregated outside the holy area, the headmaster chided them, urging them to settle down while they waited for the rest of their classmates.
A typical day at a yeshiva would include the study of the Torah, Talmud, and other religious texts pertaining to Jewish law, ethics, customs, and history.
Currently we have 6 Global Mission projects in Israel, some 850 Adventist believers, and more than 20 Adventist congregations.
