Our Approach

Machshevet Yisrael:
At Midreshet Tehillah, students develop a sensitivity to the depth, subtlety and complexity of Torah. We engage sources from Tanach, Talmud, Halacha, Midrash, and Jewish philosophy to gain a nuanced understanding of their underlying issues and implications. Our students come to appreciate that, rather than a collection of insights, Torah presents us with a powerful, integrated vision of reality and self which transforms our world.

Personal Religious Growth:
At Midreshet Tehillah we guide each student to grow religiously in a manner structured to her individual character, strengths, and needs while enhancing her self-awareness, self-respect, and sensitivity to others.

Klal Yisrael: 
At Midreshet Tehillah we encourage each talmida to form her unique self in the context of her connection to and participation in Klal Yisrael. Through her chesed activities, each student plays an active role in the life of the Jewish people. Through meeting families and communities, classes, experiences, encounters, and endless conversations, they begin to gain a sense for how they want to live their lives and raise their families in today’s complex Jewish world.

Eretz Yisrael:
We encourage our students to view the opportunity to learn Torah and live in Eretz Yisrael as a privilege, and an incredible opportunity to experience our past as it meets our future.  We want our students to bond with their Land by trekking its trails, walking in the places where the Tanach they study actually happened, and engaging the issues that animate both their own lives and that of the modern State of Israel.
