It is a once monthly session of high-level text-based Torah study by some of the foremost women teachers and professors of Tanach, from both Israel and the United States. In the past, our sessions have been held on Wed. evenings at 7:30 P.M.

Individual shiurim will have a suggested donation amount of $5.00 for members and $6.00 for non-members. As those of you who have attended this series well know, our speakers are representative of the highest level of women scholars in the world of Jewish Studies. Subscriptions, sponsorships and support-in-part provide the means for us to bring these amazing women to you. Please contact Hadassah Waxman at This email address is being protected from spambots.
