Open Beit Midrash

The Beit Midrash (House of Study) has traditionally been the cultural center for creative spiritual conversation, a place to bring everyone together in an atmosphere of focused learning, energetic discussion and personal search.

Open Beit Midrash is our pioneering, informal Tuesday night learning academy. We explore Jewish texts and their relevance to contemporary personal and social issues with some of the most talented and sought-after Jewish educators in the country. Open Beit Midrash is for students at all levels, and all texts are studied in English translation

The Open Beit Midrash takes place on most Tuesday evenings from November through June.  The program is built around three-week mini-courses.  Course costs to be confirmed upon announcement of the roster. Per-course, and full subscriptions are available, as well as scholarships; please contact Rabbi Michelle Dardashti for more information.
