The Women’s & Community Beit Midrash of Efrat and Gush Etzion (The WBM), founded in 1998, by Batya Hefter, is a vibrant community organized around Torah study for women and men of all ages and backgrounds. In our encounter with classic Jewish sources, we encourage personal growth through conversation and introspection, aiming to break rote behavior and to create a more knowledgeable, tolerant, socially active, and spiritually engaged society

.We look forward to a fruitful year of learning together, as The WBM offers classes in partnership with Matnas Gush Etzion's Katedra
