At Midreshet Lindenbaum you will learn with a chavruta, which allows you to delve deeply into the Torah, developing both the skills and the love for learning on your own. Our talented and dynamic teachers welcome and respect all questions, and take your learning to the next level as they guide you in the Beit Midrash, open up new vistas in classroom discussion, and invite you to their homes to share Shabbat together.
Learning is a window into a way of life. Analyzing the stories in Tanakh, deciphering the complexities of the Gemara, and understanding the development of Halakha enable you to grow in middot, yirat shamayim and shemirat mitzvot. The connections you form with your teachers and fellow students through Torah learning create the strongest bonds. Find mentors and friends for life!
Spiritual growth goes hand in hand with learning Torah. Meaningful learning creates a stronger connection to Hashem and a deeper commitment to mitzvot. Our shiurim, guest speakers and spiritual experiences such as tefilot, shabbatot and tiyulim, all help you experience different modes of spirituality and create a personalized connection to your Judaism.
Our Individual Spiritual Program (ISP) pairs you with a staff mentor for regular meetings to develop an individualized and goal-oriented plan to foster spiritual growth and implement what you learn at your own pace. It's an incredible opportunity to think deeply about where you are, what you are reaching for, and most importantly, to plan practical steps toward achieving your goals in spiritual growth and Torah observance.
Be a part of Am Yisrael in Eretz Yisrael
At Midreshet Lindenbaum, the vibrant extra-curricular programs – including shabbatot and tiyulim around the country, a meaningful chesed program and a myriad of other special programs – complement and enhance the learning and help achieve our goals of religious and personal growth. Pushing your limits, hiking the land, spending shabbat on a yishuv, volunteering as a mother's helper for an ill child and learning about Israel's politics enable you to feel an even deeper connection to Am Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael.
Israeli Integration and Overseas Care
Why choose between totally immersed in a program built for Israelis, and being in a completely overseas environment? At Midreshet Lindenbaum you don't have to choose – you get the best of both worlds!
You can integrate with Israelis in the dorm, in classes and in the Beit Midrash, creating friendships with Israeli peers while learning and gaining different perspectives from the Israeli teachers. At the same time, we give you all the support and guidance of an overseas program that understands your background and experience.
At Home in Jerusalem
Midreshet Lindenbaum is your home! Our beautiful facility, centered around our Beit Midrash, is complete with a renovated dormitory, classrooms, dining room, garden patio, exercise room and so much more – all under one roof!
Our campus is also home to Midreshet Darkaynu – Midreshet Lindenbaum's program for students with special needs. The programs come together for shabbatot, tiyulim and weekly chavrutot in the Beit Midrash, shared opportunities which enhance everyone's Israel experience.
