The 2013 Summer Session of the TRI Torah Institute is being held in Dublin, Ireland from the 18 - 25 of August. The TRI team of teachers will take us on an exploration of various aspects of Joshua’s journey from the land of the narrow place, Egypt, to leading the newly-birthed nation of Israel into the Land of Promise in fulfillment of God’s promises to Abraham. We will study the book of Joshua within the frame of the Covenant of Abraham.
How did God prepare Joshua for this journey?
How did he walk out his faith in God?
What can we learn from it for our own journey in walking out Torah and appropriating the promises of God?
Please note that these courses are at an intermediate level. If you have never studied with us before, or only once or twice, we would like to recommend that you take the online course Foundations Rediscovered. It is not a requirement, but you will get much more out of the courses if you already have this foundation of understanding.
Our group outing this summer will be to the Japanese Gardens that are within the Irish National Stud Farms. These gardens, a “seamless mixture of Eastern and Western cultures,” are recognized throughout Europe as some of the finest of their kind.
They were designed by Japanese master horticulturist Tassa Eida and his son Minoru. Their aim was to symbolize the Life of Man through the natural elements of trees, plants, flowers, lawns, rocks, and water.
Amidst these serene and contemplative surroundings, we will have specially designed study sessions that allow for and encourage personal time with God.
In addition, we will have the opportunity to visit the farm area where Ireland’s champion racehorses are bred and raised. A special museum dedicated to the history of the horse in Ireland tells the story through artifacts, illustrations, and texts. An uplifting video presentation records the beginning of an equine life through to the birth of a foal.
We will end the day by going to Ireland’s oldest pub, The Brazen Head, for a traditional Irish dinner and music seisiun.

This is a one-day seminar exploring the 1st century Jewish backgrounds to the Gospel of John. In this study we hope to give the student an appreciation of this book the way John meant it, and the way those who first received it might have understood it. We will go through the book chapter by chapter and cover as much as time permits. This course is especially helpful for beginners in the studies of 1st century Jewish backgrounds.
