The American Institute 

The American Institute is a unique and inspiring Hebraically oriented college founded in 1984 by a distinguished host of academics led by Dr. Ronald Moseley. Since its creation the Institute has grown into a nationally recognized dispensary of information and inspiration in all things related to the history, geography, language, and culture of the ancient Middle East. 

The Institute is led by a consortium of scholars brought together for the single purpose of introducing people to the origins of their faith, to Israel, and to Israel’s Messiah.
