Open Bet Midrash

On most weeknights, men and women, adults and youth, are invited to learn with university-level and rabbinical students from Yeshiva University in the Elias Room at our “Open Bet Midrash.” Learn your way: join a habruta, hear a short debar torah, or simply pick a sefer off the shelf. Take advantage of this unique opportunity, and don’t hesitate to contact Z. Edinger at zedinger@shearithisrael.org with any questions.

Participants are welcome to stay for evening services and help strengthen our minyan.
