AM or PM? Bais Medrash fits your schedule.

The "Convenient" man

It's got to be the right environment. Y'know, easy access to seforim, constant coffee, the right guys...

I want a quite, focuesed place with  leanign atmosphere

I need the right atmosphere to study in; a quiet space, the avir of learning and no-one looking over my shoulder.

Bais Medrash offers an extremely low-pressure, peaceful environment, perfect for focused learning.

It's much more geshmak with a teacher or a chavrusa. That would keep me motivated.

Find the perfect partner or intriguing topic at Bais Medrash.

The "Too-Busy" man

What makes it work >

Busy Conference

I've got work, kids, a family, my house. There is just no time!

Ki Heim Chayenu… and a dedicated place outside the house helps Torah become priority.
