Program Description

Midreshet Harova offers an ideal setting for mature and motivated women from Israel and around the world who wish to achieve spiritual and intellectual growth in a religious Zionist framework that combines intimate settings with the resources of a large educational institution. Its open intellectual environment, combined with a wide variety of faculty, is particularly attractive to the creative student interested in exploring a range of ideas and approaches.
 
Students participate in a full day of learning focused on chevruta study, and development of textual skills that create the necessary basis for continued learning and growth after leaving the Midrasha. Programs focusing on current events and the political situation in Israel are a regular part of the informal education program, as is an annual journey to Poland that serves as the focal point of the Midrasha’s Holocaust education program.

Program Description

Afikei Torah is the realization of our belief that every young woman who dedicates a year to Limud HaTorah and spiritual refinement is entitled to a learning experience of the highest academic standard. Afikei Torah offers a program of study that goes beyond the ordinary. Our study sessions and classes are designed to challenge our students intellectually and nurture them spiritually. Textual ability and analytical skills are honed together with constant awareness that Torah is the gateway to Ahava and Yirah and "Talmud Mevi Lidei Ma'aseh." 
 
We expose our students to the multiplicity of Torah and give them the confidence to navigate a Torah-true path. Consistent with our belief in excellence for all, we have included a skill-strengthening track so that any student with a desire to learn can find her place in our school. Afikei Torah sees the composition of the student community as a crucial catalyst for successful spiritual development. While Afikei Torah students stem from diverse academic backgrounds, they are unanimous in their total commitment to Torah observance and their aspirations to spiritual growth and fulfillment. The prospective Afikei Torah student is someone who is sincerely committed to Mitzvah observance and has a genuine desire to advance in both learning and spirituality.
