Midrasha - Women's Study Group

Midrasha is a study group for identifying females age 18-180.
So far, Midrasha has an email list of 100+ women ranging all ages, and this past session there were 30 women in attendance at Jane Willoughby’s home. Beginning in November, Rabbi Schatz will hold Midrasha in the morning AND evening so that mothers dropping off at Pressman, or those who are less available in the evening have a chance to learn as well. There is also a Facebook group you can join. If interested in joining, contact Rabbi Schatz:
