Chabad WashU's Beit Midrash Kollel Program 

The beit midrash is a communal space in the Chabad House dedicated solely to Jewish learning. Here, students learn any Jewish topics they desire, from Tanakh to contemporary works. Students are welcome to learn from any of the thousands of books in Chabad's library or bring their own. Additionally, weekly shiurim (lessons on Torah-related topics) are hosted in the beit midrash on Sunday mornings during the academic semester. The beit midrash is open to student use 24/7.

In the spring 2021 semester, any Jewish student may commit to learning in the beit midrash for a set amount of time each week to gain invaluable Jewish knowledge (plus a stipend)! Contact Chabad Students Association Religious Life Chair Micah Gentin to get started.

The Ari Fellowship

The Ari fellowship is an in-depth study series designed to engage the mind through Yeshiva style learning. This semester, we will be studying the philosophy of religious practice in a text/discussion based class. Participants will understand the ethical, moral, and philosophical reasons behind practical halacha and will use the texts and discussions to further develop their spirituality. The fellowship is geared towards WashU students who have some experience with text based Jewish learning, such as alumni of Jewish Day School, individuals that took a gap year, or students of similar background. 

Coffee with the Rabbi or Rebbetzin

Schedule a meeting with Rabbi Hershey or Chana anytime and anywhere on campus. We are available for individual study as well as anything else you may want to discuss.
