Open Bet Midrash

5 Nights a Week

5 evenings a week: Sundays through Thursdays 
From 5:15 pm until Evening Services
Join us for "Open Bet Midrash" at Shearith Israel! 
Led by a team of talented, warm, and engaging university-level yeshiva students, the program is open to prospective learners of all ages, backgrounds, and interests. Learn your way: join a habruta, hear a debar torah, or simply pick a sefer off the shelf.
The students spearheading this initiative have just returned from a year of intensive study in Israel at various institutions, including Yeshivat Eretz HaTzvi, Yeshivat Orayta, and Yeshivat Maale Gilboa. After the summer, some of them will be returning to Israel for a second year of study.
For more information, don't hesitate to contact Z. Edinger.
