Mission Statement

Drisha Institute seeks to transform Jewish life and Jewish education by providing equal access to the study of classical Jewish texts, and empowering women in particular to fulfill their potential as leaders and educators in all spheres of the Jewish community. Drisha serves as a focal point for developing a community of open-minded and committed Jews, where different points of view are respected and exchanged, and vital issues are tackled.

Description

A forum for developing and empowering the next generation of Jewish scholars and educators, Drisha Institute was founded in 1979 by Rabbi David Silber as the world's first center for women's advanced study of classical Jewish texts. Today, Drisha offers a wide variety of educational initiatives for every life stage: Bat Mitzvah study for mothers and daughters; learning and activities for high school girls; classes for engaged couples; multi-year certificate programs for scholars; summer institutes for adults; continuing education classes and community lectures; and participatory prayer services that have been a catalyst and model. Thousands of people -- from the New York area as well as from around the world -- participate in Drisha programs annually.
