Community Blog Sponsor a Day of Learning in the Beit Midrash
Whether you are celebrating a milestone, recognizing someone important in your life, or honoring the memory of someone who has passed away, we invite you to sponsor a Day of Learning at our Beit Midrash (House of Study) in their honor by sponsoring a day for $360 or a week for $1,800.
The Beit Midrash is the center of the Hebrew College Rabbinical School experience. Each morning, students gather there to study, analyze, and probe our sacred texts. The learning in the Beit Midrash happens in chevruta (study partnerships) – the traditional mode of Jewish learning in which two partners read text together, grapple with the meaning, sharpen perspectives, and gently push to reach for deeper layers of understanding.
We invite you to sponsor a day in the Beit Midrash. We welcome you to come and visit, sit with our students, and engage with them as they explore and challenge tradition and each other. As the day’s sponsor, you very directly contribute to the learning and the growth taking place in the Beit Midrash – quite literally enabling the sacred work of that day.
If you wish to join us on the day you sponsor, we begin at 9:00 a.m. with an announcement and introduction of the sponsor and a word about the milestone or person being honored.
Students then honor the sponsor by having this intention as they study. The sponsor of the day is also recognized on the Rabbinical School’s website. If the sponsorship is in memory of a loved one, we would be honored to say Kaddish in their memory during morning services which take place before study.
