Jerusalem, Israel / For Women / Spanish, English
The Midreshet Rachel v'Chaya program, the sister school to Shapell's, is tailor-made for educated adult Jewish women. The programs aims to delicately balance seemingly divergent
The school is growth oriented environment without putting pressure on someone to become somebody else. The great thing about MRC is that it doesn’t represent a single jewish ideology.
There are teachers across the spectrum- Dati Leumi (Zionist religious), Chassidish, Hareidi Hardal...you name it.
This provides an amazing opportunity to personally formulate opinions based on a wide variety of sources, styles, interpretations, and information.
There is also a program in Spanish, called Midreshet Rajel v’Chaya Programa Latina (website below).
MRC attracts the type of girl that wants to think for herself and is comfortable making her own choices without having a lot of structure.
Girls are self-motivated, intellectual, and text-oriented. There's not a lot of fluff at MRC, but inspiration is found by going deep into the texts.
Everyone comes from a variety of backgrounds- some growing up with no Judaism in their life to girls coming from more traditional families.
Apartments are located away from the school, which gives a great sense of independence. Girls have the freedom to do as we please for the most part. You will get as much out of the whole
experience as you put in.
