Our special events allow you to experience Torah that thrives both inside & outside of the beit midrash. Incorporate art, music, dance and drama into Torah living and learning. Traverse the hills of Bat Ayin where you can pick & learn the Torahs about the various herbs that grow naturally in the Judean Hills.

Rosh Chodesh events come alive as you unite with one voice during women’s musical hallel, learn the various aspects particular to each Hebrew month, stimulate your body as you participate in a meditative movement or alternative class and share a nutritious wholesome lunch! Challenge your mind with the textual classes offered! Live, eat, sing, play and dance in our sukkah as you experience a spiritually uplifting seminar in Bat Ayin. Or learn insights into the various fruits & brachot at the Tu B’Shevat seder which is like no other. Each seminar will assist you to make a deeper soul connection to Torah in your own unique way!
