Why, How, Who


 We believe Beit Midrash study and the culture of dispute are meaningful tools that help resolve society’s most critical challenges.

 We develop study programs that enable a dynamic encounter between Jewish values and an ethical public, professional, and social life in Israel.

We invite key leaders
and decision-makers
from various sectors of

 Israeli society - who want
to help create a values-

based, inclusive and
pluralistic society - to
access their sources.
