|Mayanot Institute of Jewish Studies, located
in the heart of Jerusalem, provides a highly
academic Judaic Studies curriculum taught
by dynamic staff in a welcoming atmosphere.
Mayanot offers annual, semester, winter, summer
and post Taglit-Birthright Israel study programs
for women and men ages 20 and over.
Jews have always been known as the “People
of the Book”. Independent study of
our great classics bind us to the past,
inspire us in the present, and prepare us
for the future. At Mayanot, a strong emphasis
is placed on textual
study giving students
the skills necessary to access great works
in their original Hebrew and Aramaic.
In an open academic environment students
are encouraged to question, challenge and
explore five thousand years of Jewish wisdom
and apply it to contemporary society.
Mayanot's unique curriculum encompasses both the intellectual
of Jewish study. Studying at Mayanot extends
beyond the classroom as students experience
Israeli and Jewish culture as well as
volunteer and go on
excursions exploring the Land
The result is a fascinating journey of
self discovery and personal and spiritual
