High school students from around the world spend five weeks (June 29 - August 1, 2014) together, building their knowledge and friendships at Drisha Institute. Known as the Dr. Beth Samuels High School Program, it provides young women with an opportunity to immerse in the study of classical Jewish texts, including Tanakh, Talmud, Halakha and Philosophy. Students live together and engage in both academic and social activities throughout the month.
Students at Drisha form a close bond as they immerse themselves in new experiences both in and out of the beit midrash. They are united by a love of Torah and a deep respect for each other's perspectives. Summer memories are recorded in a yearbook and relationships continue to grow through internet listserves and mid-year shabbatonim.
