Midreshet Hakerem        מדרשת הכרם

Midreshet HaKerem is a joint project of Kehilat HaKerem and Midreshet  Schechter, which is an affiliate of the Shechter Institute of Jewish Studies In Jerusalem.  

Since the early 1990s, the Schechter Institute has offered courses in Jewish studies to immigrants from Russia. Today, Midreshet Schechter offers courses in Judaism to the general public in Israel and abroad.
These courses are based on study of the sources and an examination of the meanings and values implied by them, from a critical historical point of view.
