Video Consultation

virtual open house

Calling all prospective students! You are invited to Maharat’s Virtual Open House from November 6-7 this year. Sit in on classes from our four-year ordination program and one-year preparatory program and meet students, faculty, and alumnae. If you are local to NY, we welcome you to come learn in person with us on these dates or other dates.

All classes listed below are open to visitors. Please fill out the form below to register by Thursday, November 2nd. In addition to shiurim, we will also be hosting a Q&A session with our Director of Recruitment and Admissions. Times listed are US East Coast; please make adjustments for your own time zone.

Please note that if none of these class times or Q&A sessions work for you, please don't hesitate to reach out to Liba Berger in Admissions directly, and we will explore alternative times and ways to meet and learn a little bit more about Yeshivat Maharat. If you live in the New York tristate area, please be in touch.
