Looking to strengthen your connection to your religion? To engage in the Talmudic sources and build a deep understanding and hashkafa (world view)? Looking to feel spiritually connected on a profound intellectual level? Are you looking to be part of a group of empowering post college students who want to spend a year in Israel broadening their understanding, their place and connection to Judaism and halacha? Are you looking for an approach where women learn on a serious level, becoming part of the Bet Midrash (study hall) which has formed halacha for thousands of years without compromising your commitment to halacha?
Don’t leave your understanding of who you are as a Jewish women on an elementary level. Deepen and broaden your knowledge, engage in the sources and make your religious understanding your own!
The Alisa Flatow Post College Program is an opportunity for young women who want to spend an empowering year in the Bet Midrash learning a variety of topics to build a strong spiritual and intellectual foundation of who they are as religious women. The schedule is full day, five days a week. The learning is based on chevrutah study (with a partner) which allows for engaging independently in the sources, along with a study partner to help build skills and make the knowledge you acquire your own.
Nishmat’s Esther Kryss Bet Midrash is filled with a tapestry of highly skilled, devoted educators of diverse perspectives on halacha and Judaism. The faculty is there to teach and guide you in building your own viewpoint and understanding who you are.
Join us this September at Nishmat for an empowering year which will change you for a lifetime. Whether this will be your first experience studying in a Bet Midrash or you have previously spent a gap year in Israel; if you are looking to deepen and broaden your hashkafa with motivated, inspiring women – Nishmat’s post college program is for you!
Throughout the year we will go on tours of different sites in Israel, many times the very sites we learn about in Tanach. That is the beauty of learning Torat Yisrael in Eretz Yisrael together with the women of Am Yisrael!
In addition we will spend some shabbatot together as a group, at different staff members’ homes and experiencing shabbat with different families and communities in Israel.
