A Spiritual Stronghold in the Hills of Binyamin
Did you know...
Midreshet Binat is one of Israel's largest and most influential midrashot for women. Located on a beautiful mountaintop in Shvut Rachel, next to historic Shilo, the midrasha provides the perfect balance between intellectual and spiritual growth for young women from the Religious Zionist world.
Midreshet Binat was founded in 2000, and now has hundreds of students learning in its programs. In addition to the 150 on campus all week long, there are joint programs for students of Ariel University and Michlelet Orot, as well as regular programming for alumnae in Jerusalem and Petach Tikva, and an Elul Program in which young women from across the country come to prepare themselves for the Rosh Hashana-Yom Kippur season.
Midreshet Binat's emphasis on high level learning and personal development, enhanced by individual attention and mentoring, has created the perfect environment for personal growth and Jewish learning. Unsurprisingly, the midrasha's graduates return regularly for classes and to reunite with beloved teachers, often bringing along their husbands-to-be and later, their young families. The midrasha provides a warm home for all, enabling each young woman to find her path in life -- and that is the true secret to its success.
Now, Midreshet Binat needs to expand its campus in order to accommodate the growing student body, which has been living in old pre-fab trailers for years. The trailers, or "caravans", are reaching the stage where they will be beyond repair. The Midrasha has acquired a large tract of land adjacent to its current campus, where it plans to build a student dormitory consisting of one-story cottages that both respect the rural atmosphere of the area, and help to retain Jewish sovereignty over the land.
The plans have already been drawn up, and the relevant permits have been acquired. We invite you to visit us, and to partner with us in establishing a permanent home for Midreshet Binat in the hills of Binyamin.
