Located in the heart of JCT’s Lev Campus, the College’s beautiful Beit Midrash provides all Lev students the opportunity to combine daily Torah study and prayer with their academic pursuits. The rigorous curriculum — which includes Tanach, Talmud, Jewish Law, Jewish Philosophy, Business Ethics and the synthesis of Torah and technology — provides students with the solid foundation necessary to cultivate an enduring commitment to Jewish values and integrate it into every aspect of their lives.
JCT’s full-time Beit Midrash Program includes approximately 20 hours of Torah learning per week. Under the strong leadership of JCT's Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Yosef Zvi Rimon, the Beit Midrash currently serves over 400 students and that number continues to grow. From the early morning hours until late at night, students can be found in the Beit Midrash engaged in prayer or Talmudic discourse. Divided into small groups and chevrutot according to their abilities, students receive ongoing guidance by a devoted staff of learned Torah scholars, rabbis and educators and are tested on a regular basis. Despite the demanding hours of a double curriculum (Beit Midrash in the morning and academic studies in the afternoon/evening), these dedicated students are highly motivated to learn Torah and strengthen their connection to the land of Israel. Many serve in the IDF in hesder or atudai programs before or after their studies at JCT. Firmly rooted in Jewish heritage, JCT students have made and continue to make remarkable contributions to advancing the State of Israel.
The Beit Midrash website also provides the wider public with access to Beit Midrash activities through its extensive library of online audio and video shiurim. Please see the Beit Midrash website for updated information regarding upcoming activities, calendar of weekly shiurim and davening times.
The College places a very high priority on providing all Campus Lev students access to Beit Midrash scholarships as modest but significant living stipends. Highly motivated in their efforts to continue investing in their Torah learning while pursuing an academic education, these scholarships provide our students with critical financial assistance. Scholarship amounts are determined by criteria that include army service, marital status, number of children and year of study.
