Hebrew Academy of Detroit is an initiative of The Great Awakening started in 2018 by Dr. Kenneth Howard, Ronald Dalton Jr., and Garry Shephard to awaken, teach, and train believers to the original history, people and doctrine of the Scriptures while equipping them for ministry to the world. The Academy is not associated with any Christian Denomination, BHI camps or camp doctrine. As a learning institution we reject the idea that race and ethnicity play a role in salvation. While we do teach that the Israelites of the Bible were and are people of color, we believe that race is not a factor in salvation. We affirm that Yahusha the Messiah’s sinless blood has purchased salvation for people from every ethnicity on the face of the earth.
