Summer Program

שבעים פנים לתורה Seventy Faces of the Torah

We are back on Campus!
Make this summer unforgettable.

Whether you have never had the chance to learn in a beit midrash or the beit midrash is your second home, we invite you to take part in Nishmat's unique summer program.

Immerse yourself in Tanach, Gemara, Halacha and Midrash with two weeks of guided learning to enable you to acquire the skills you need for independent study. Spend your summer with a special group of women of varied ages and backgrounds, from all over the world, who are eager to make this summer their most meaningful one yet.

What is special about Nishmat's Summer Program?

Nishmat is unique in its combination of chevruta study and text-based learning. This allows students to grow independently, gaining textual skills and fostering authentic individual religious growth.

I have found that while it’s easy to identify learning experiences that feel great, it’s a lot harder to deconstruct why they feel great. Learning at Nishmat both virtually and in-person has transformed me as a person. I was learning with other like-minded individuals, who truly were committed to being immersed in a culture of living and learning in today's world. Through learning, I found that the rabbis guided me in reflection to create a deeper understanding of Torah and mitzvot. Thus, encouraging me to reflect on my own feelings and create a deeper harmony and peace of mind. I would highly recommend the virtual program for all those seeking a "touch of Israel" in the diaspora. I cannot wait until I can retire from my job as an special educator in a Jewish day school and learn at Nishmat full time. I have about thirty years to go but until then I will enjoy learning online and occasionally in person!

Nishmat’s summer program inspired me tremendously. Nishmat prioritizes deep, sincere, and uncompromising Torah study with a focus on the unique, integral role of women within the Jewish world as well as the beit Midrash. For anyone looking to dive into our tradition’s ancient wisdom, and it’s modern applications - I definitely recommend this program!

The Nishmat summer program is amazing - learned faculty who connect with students, diverse students who together build a vibrant learning community and Jerusalem which offers one of a kind experiences. I enjoyed being intellectually challenged & excited in such a warm, friendly environment. I was inspired to join a local women's Gemara shiur and am thrilled to have hosted fellow participants for Shabbat in the years following our summer together.

As an older woman who never had the chance to attend yeshiva, I was both intrigued and nervous about attending Nishmat’s summer program. When I arrived, I discovered that my teachers were wonderful, learned, and patient. They were enthusiastic as I was, and I learned so much from each one. I was so happy that I had decided to attend, despite my initial nervousness, and I felt so privileged to be able to learn in Yerushalayim. I greatly enjoyed the classes as well as the opportunity to meet and interact with my classmates from a variety of backgrounds and countries. I also was able to stay in the dormitory, located in the same building as the Beit Medrash, which gave ample opportunity to spend extra time there as well as to participate in the programs offered to the dorm students. I enjoyed the program so much that I have continued to take classes offered throughout the pandemic via Zoom, though nothing can quite compare with actually learning in person in Eretz Yisroe-l. I highly recommend the three week summer program, and encourage women from all religious backgrounds to participate.
