At Midreshet Rachel v’Chaya join a group of educated,

intelligent women who are committed to personal and spiritual growth. Based in the heart of Jerusalem, this warm, open and mature environment, gives students the opportunity and tools to discover the Jewish sources and integrate them into their lives. We focus on balancing the competing demands of family, study and career.


Our trained and diverse faculty will help you master the skills needed for Torah study as you gain the confidence and a firm basis for independently analyzing the wealth of Jewish texts. The class sizes are small, and chavruta learning one-on-one with a peer will introduce you to a uniquely dynamic world of Torah learning.
Our students are comprised of university students, graduates and professionals from varying backgrounds. Together they form a mature, dynamic, and inquisitive group dedicated to making Judaism the foundation of their lives. You are joining the Shapell’s/Darché Noam family, experiencing simchas and the cycle of the Jewish year together, forging friendships that will remain with you for life.
Our approach, based on the Torah’s dictum “D’racheha Darché Noam – The Torah’s ways are ways of pleasantness and all its paths are peace.”  allows you to define your path in the broad spectrum of the Torah community while becoming an advocate for Ahavat Yisrael. Midreshet Rachel guides students of all Jewish backgrounds in their religious and personal growth through the learning and living of Torah. From its location in the heart of Jerusalem, our students are infused with a love for the Land of Israel. Contact us for more information.
