Monday Night Beit Midrash

Toronto is proud to host the only weekly Bnei Akiva Beit Midrash in North America where many high school and university students look forward to gather every week to learn in Bnai Torah on Monday nights b’chevruta and afterwards benefit from a shiur given by different knowledgeable speakers. The speakers include local Rabbis, visiting scholars from Israel, community leaders, and our very own students who attend the Beit Midrash. The shiur is then followed by Ma’ariv and light refreshments.

The Beit Midrash has hosted many special events during the year including a special break the fast learning session at the end of Tzom Gedalya and a Limmud Merkazi in memory of the 8 students killed in the terror attack at Mercaz Harav.  As well, once a month Shevet Yuval attends the Beit Midrash giving the students the opportunity to learn with chaveirim from this special shevet.

The Beit Midrash is crucial to the essence of Bnei Akiva as it truly exemplifies the prominent devotion to “Torah V’Avodah”.
