Community

One of the most important messages that Ma’ayanot strives to instill over the course of four years of high school is that learning, and especially talmud Torah, extends beyond the formal classroom and is for life. This message is powerfully reinforced as our students take note of Ma’ayanot parents, former parents, and even those not otherwise associated with Ma’ayanot, who choose to take advantage of the myriad adult education opportunities offered throughout the year by our distinguished faculty members.

We invite the community to join our faculty in their explorations, or for those who cannot attend in person, to utilize our extensive shiur video library in ARCHIVES below.
