Beit Midrash for Artists
This approach to learning is based on independent reading of primary sources, an examination of various interpretations of those texts, and the development of study tools and discussion within a group setting. A Beit Midrash recreates learning that is not frontal, and prepares talented students to continue along the learning journey. Alma, Home of Hebrew Culture’s Beit Midrash for Artists is a study space for shared study that is geared towards a group of people from a common professional background (professional guild). In meetings held in alternate weeks, participants acquire study tools in and for classical sources of Hebrew culture, and through textual study the translation and interpretation of these texts is nurtured based on and related to their professional field.
