Come to Learn, Nourish Your Soul.

In the heart of picturesque Nachlaot, Jerusalem, our program offers a broad spectrum of classes and experiences to enrich your life. We embrace the study of the Chassidic as well as the Mussar giants, in a close-knit atmosphere of mutual support and spiritual growth. Our program is open to Torah-observant women of all ages who stem from every possible background… our greatest teachers are often one another.

A Letter from the director

 
 

Shiviti is a hope & a dream…

Where can women come to learn and develop their textual skills while also immersing themselves in the Torah’s inner dimension? Shiviti is a place where light meets vessel--where you don’t have to compromise on textual rigor in order to taste the sweetness of the Torah’s soul...its niggun.

Where can women come to study in a multi-tiered environment, where we work together, synergistically, to actualize our potential to study Torah and grow? Where do advanced students sit side-by-side with those who are concept-rich but still less developed in their skills, to explore areas of Torah together that are equally fresh for everyone? Shiviti is a place where we meet as equals, collaborators in our work to come closer to G-d and His Torah, each one contributing her strengths for the benefit of everyone.

Where can we build a true symbiosis between learning center and community, where students give back to their environment by sharing freely of what they have with the women outside of our walls? Shiviti is a place where our students know that their greatest learning will come through initiating a Torah relationship with the broader community as an act of service.

Shiviti...a home for women’s learning in Jerusalem where mind, heart, body, and spirit are cultivated and celebrated.

here, you’re Right at home.

The Brodts have devoted themselves for decades to the spiritual needs and yearnings of Jerusalem’s seekers, and established Yeshivat Simchat Shlomo as a nexus from which a Torah of joy and connection has reached communities all over the world. Before his passing in Elul 5777, Reb Sholom z”l anticipated the opening of a learning program for women that would synthesize the depths of Torah with a rigorous textual approach. We’re making his dream a reality.
