Join us this June for a week-long learning experience that will challenge your mind and refresh your spirit with a taste of authentic, yeshiva-style learning. Delve into the original texts of halacha, gemara and chassidus and discover a world of learning that is both refreshing and empowering.

This is Batsheva's 4th annual summer program and this year we're coming back east! We will be spending the week on the beautiful and spacious Vallevue Estate, in Morristown, NJ.

At Batsheva Learning Center, we believe in empowering our students to explore the original Torah texts independently and guiding them in the process of analyzing and appreciating the depth of Torah learning.  We handpick our staff of experienced, knowledgeable and passionate instructors who are excited to challenge you to open your mind and delve into the world of Torah.
