Growing up, we were told that we could have it all. College. Career. Family.
That’s when Machon Chana fits into our hectic schedules.
For 45 years, Machon Chana Women’s Institute has offered Jewish women the opportunity to see the complete Jewish picture. Every year, our classes introduce hundreds of women to the Torah and enable them to apply its timeless teachings to everyday life. If you are searching for a deeper understanding of your Jewish self, we may have just what you’re looking for.
Machon Chana’s intense two-year full-time Yeshiva offers women ages 18 and over a comprehensive Jewish education through lectures, skill building classes and tutorials. Courses include: Chumash, Jewish Law, Chassidic Philosophy, Prophets, and Jewish Home. Machon Chana offers part-time learning throughout the year for those who are unable to attend full-time yeshiva. Short-term and part-time daily classes are available for women of all ages and levels of learning and commitment within the framework of our regular Yeshiva Program.
Whether seeking continuing education, or to join a seminary for the first time, our night program attracts women of all ages and from around the city. Classes range from Hebrew & Yiddish Ulpans, to Kabbalah & Chassidic discourses to practical Halachic & marriage readiness as well as offering a one on one study partner . There is someone for everyone.
Sunday Classes were created for the working woman, student, young mother or other busy women who love learning, but cannot afford full time study as well as a supplement for regular Yeshiva students. Great way to begin the week with a spiritual boost and receive inspiration to carry on throughout the week. The Sunday program attracts women of different ages and levels from community leaders to newly observant, from middle aged to young adults. Students with diverse languages and cultural backgrounds meet and enjoy a delicious lunch together.
