Women’s Beit Midrash

Our first year of the Women’s Beit Midrash was such a success that we will continue this unique learning opportunity for the women of our community for a second year.

Community Scholars Michal Kohane and Sarah Robinson will each lead the Sunday morning Beit Midrash sessions during their visits to Oakland from 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM.

Michal Kohane

We welcome back Community Scholar Michal Kohane, who will be joining us for four Shabbatot throughout the year. We thank her for the special commitment she is making to return periodically from Israel – and we can’t wait to continue learning from her inspiring Torah.

Michal Kohane, a former member of Beth Jacob and Jewish educator in the Bay Area, is a student at Yeshivat Maharat, and served as the spiritual leader of Prospect Heights Shul before moving back to Israel this past summer.

Sarah Robinson

We welcome Community Scholar Sarah Robinson for four Shabbatot. Sarah is a gifted Jewish educator who teaches Mishna, Gemara and Halacha to Manhattan Day School’s middle school girls; millennials on
OU-Israel Free Spirit Birthright trips; and adults in Congregation Ohav Sholom as the shul’s Visiting Scholar.

Sarah has also taught numerous women and teenage girls how to layn Torah and Megillot. She was born and raised in Newton, MA and learned in Maimonides School, Migdal Oz, Stern College, and Yeshiva University’s Graduate Program in Advanced Talmudic Studies (GPATS). We are fortunate to have her bring her dynamic classes and warm personality to our community.
