THE RRG BEIT MIDRASH AT THE HEBREW UNIVERSITY
Inspiring and informative Jewish enrichment programming for Hebrew U students
For nearly 35 years, the RRG Beit Midrash is the place where overseas students from all backgrounds and denominations studying at Hebrew University can explore the Jewish tradition in a welcoming, open, and communal environment.
We offer a range of programming, starting with our weekly Monday Night Beit Midrash, which includes a delicious dinner, world-renowned speakers, and the opportunity for students to chose their Jewish topic or text and learn one-on-one or in small groups with an exceptional volunteer mentor.
Every Wednesday, our newest weekly program called Torah Cafe, offers Israeli students and olim a spiritual home to explore texts, participate in group discussions on a wide variety of Jewish topics, meet new friends on campus, and enjoy free coffee, tea, and a bagel lunch.
And through our Campus Beit Midrash Initiative sponsored by the Lorsch Family, students are bringing back the best of their Beit Midrash experience to their home campuses and strengthening or initiating Jewish learning opportunities based on our models.
The RRG Beit Midrash is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Roberta Barkan, z"l.
