Beit Midrash Fund: For Alumni of The Rabbinical School

The Beit Midrash has been an engine of Jewish innovation for the past two millennia. As Rabbi Joshua proclaimed to his students, “It is impossible to have a Beit Midrash without innovation.”
אי אפשר לבית המדרש בלא חידוש

What was true in ancient Peki’in is equally so at 3080 Broadway. Our Eisenfeld-Duker Beit Midrash is the hub of The Rabbinical School, where beginners and advanced students sing out the words of Torah, poring over printed volumes of sifrei kodesh, and summoning search results from the internet. There they grow competent and confident in their sacred powers of interpretation, innovating ideas for the next generation of Jewish seekers.

Today is your time to invest in the future of The Rabbinical School. By making a gift to the Beit Midrash Fund, you will help refurbish the room, keep our collection of sefarim current, and support our students as they are transformed into rabbis. Partner with us to welcome the divine presence into our Beit Midrash.

Gifts of $5,000 or more, paid within five years, will be recognized on a plaque in the Beit Midrash. Gifts at every level will be acknowledged in the summer Alumni Newsletter.
