The Peniel Learning Center is a Hebrew-speaking, messianic elementary school located in Tiberias, Israel. We provide children of local, believing families with an education honoring Yeshua as the Messiah of Israel. The Learning Center is a ministry of the Peniel Messianic Congregation, and our goal is to aid families in raising up the next generation of the Body of Messiah in the land.
Founded in 1989, the Peniel Learning Center has had an average enrollment of 30 pupils per year in kindergarten through grade 6. Our pupils come from native Israeli families, immigrants and from families of long term expatriots living here in the land.
They have included speakers of Hebrew, Arabic, Russian, English, and other languages. Our staff also includes people of various backgrounds.
Although we may be different, what unites us is our common faith in Yeshua and a desire to provide an education that places Him in the center. The Peniel Learning Center follows the Israeli Ministry of Education curriculum and makes adjustments according to our faith. We remove things that are contrary to our faith and add subjects such as Creation and the New Testament. Subjects include: Reading, Writing, Grammar, Mathematics, Literature, Geography, History, English, Science, Sports, Bible, Art and Music.
The Kindergarten is located in a privately owned building built in the 1930s in a quiet neighborhood near downtown Tiberias. The children’s day is filled with playtime, learning activities, worship and prayer. The school meets in rented space in the historic St. Andrews Church, located on the beautiful waterfront of Tiberias. When it was built in the 1880s, the building served as the first modern school of Tiberias. We feel privileged to be a part of restoring it to its original use and continuing the legacy of godly education started by its founders.
