In a historic first, Dr Eitan Bar sat down with eminent Jewish scholar, Rabbi Chaim Sheitrit, for a live debate. The subject was on the authority of the “Oral Law”: the extra-biblical instructions of rabbinic Judaism passed down from generation to generation.

“Messianic Jews really impress me… I think at the end of this semester I’m going to order that book and read it.” (Comment on Hebrew YouTube video)

There have been several such events in English, but it has been very difficult to find a rabbi who was willing to sit and debate matters of faith in Israel – up till now. We want to express our sincere appreciation to the rabbi for his coming and participating. Rabbi Sheitrit is a “rosh kollel”, the head of the Jewish equivalent of a seminary for advanced study of the Talmud.
