Jerusalem Programs for Women

I’m a 30-year-old single Jewish woman. For many years I have wanted to go to Israel and study for a short sabbatical-like trip. I am now between jobs and have the opportunity. What do you recommend for my age and station in life?

The Aish Rabbi Replies:

When you are in Jerusalem, I encourage you to visit any of the following excellent study programs for women:

Jewel – a 3-week introductory program, where university and professional women from all backgrounds build a foundation in Self Development, Prayer, Bible, Hebrew, Mysticism, Philosophy, Holidays and more. Jewel offers an easygoing environment to fully explore your Jewish heritage with top lecturers from around the world. www.jewel4women.com

Neve Yerushalayim – the largest Jewish women's college in Israel. www.nevey.org

She'arim – www.shearim.com

Midreshet Rachel – http://midreshetrachel.com/

And don't miss the world-famous Discovery seminar, offered each week in Jerusalem. www.aish.com/dis/

Due to limited resources, the Ask the Rabbi service is intended for Jews of little background with nowhere else to turn. People with questions in Jewish law should consult their local rabbi. Note that this is not a homework service!
