WebYeshiva.org – The first fully interactive, online Yeshiva and Midrasha for Jewish study.
WebYeshiva.org is the world’s first fully-interactive Torah study program on the web. WebYeshiva.org uses the latest video-conferencing technology to offer real-time, interactive classes taught by outstanding Rabbis and teachers. With a round-the-clock schedule of classes on a variety of different subjects and levels, anyone with access to the internet can enter the world of online Torah learning. For those who can’t attend live or want to review between classes, everything is recorded and available in the archives.
WebYeshiva.org was launched in November 2007 by Rabbi Chaim Brovender, a veteran Rosh Yeshiva with many years of teaching experience, who recognized that not everyone has the luxury of spending time in a “real” Beit Midrash or Yeshiva so easily. His dream was to make Torah accessible to Jews all over the world and to help them improve their learning skills in an interactive classroom environment, using the latest internet technology. WebYeshiva.org offers live, growth-oriented, cumulative courses for serious students who want to be actively involved in Torah learning.

|“My area is loaded with learning opportunities, but I can’t get to most of them for various reasons… thank G-d, I stumbled across your site! Web Yeshiva doesn’t limit me to taking the “traditional women’s courses” and vice versa for the guys. If I can follow the lecture, I can take the course.”

“Living in the middle of nowhere… who would have ever dreamed it would be possible to sit in a real classroom setting on the internet! The best part of all – is being able to sit in a class with Jews all over the world and learn together. How exciting and awesome is that!”
Yochana Coleman, Ohio
“It is wonderful to be able to log on, and both see and listen to the Rabbi teach the class. If you take a class live, you can participate in real time by both chatting so all can see, or using a microphone — just like in a real class! …It has been invaluable to me and has added much to my Jewish learning experience.
