Torah for Women

-- Advertisement --

Sometimes people forget, but the women were standing around Har Sinai too! (I bet you didn't know that).

I wasn't sure at first if you call it a Yeshiva, a Seminary, a Jewish Center for Advance Learning, or a Midrasha (apparently Midrasha is the right term), but Nishmat definitely has programs for any Woman who wants to learn Torah.

Nishmat has been around for a while, but I recall they really gained attention when they started their Women's Halachic Hotline and program for Yoatzot (primarily women Halachic experts for women related Halachic questions - that makes sense to me).

This summer (July 1 to July 22) they are running a series of summer programs for all levels of Jewish women, from beginners to very advanced, and for all ages too. And of course they have their year round, regular post-high school programs, as well as full and part-time learning programs for adults.

The summer program also includes some "Israel Experiences" such as Shabbatonim and Tiyulim.

So all you women reading this blog, go check out Nishmat because this is your opportunity to really learn something.

And if you're a guy, have I got a Shidduch for you. (OK, that was totally out of place, but I couldn't resist.)

Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael טובה הארץ מאד מאד

Dina Zimmerman, the head there was a guest in our shul this past year. VERY smart woman. Busts out sources as good as any guy.

The picture of the woman learning with the baby is her arms is perfect.

Reminds me of a woman I know who, when she had two kids under the age of one in the house would cheerfully scream "More babies, more Torah" over the din whenever I called her.
