In 1988, Malke Bina, together with a group of women students, created Matan while studying around Lili Weil's dining room table. From modest beginnings, Matan has grown into an innovative institution dedicated to furthering women's Torah study, paving the way for them to learn Talmud, Tanakh and Halakha at the highest levels, in a vibrant atmosphere that is open to diverse spiritual and intellectual perspectives.
Matan's vision is to empower women, who are passionate about the Torah and sensitive towards the needs of individuals and the community, to learn and lead.
Matan is committed to bringing the values of Torah outside the walls of the Beit Midrash. We achieve this through our innovative range of community and online learning programs, with thousands of participants in Israel and around the world.
The dynamic resources of Matan are our staff, faculty, students, board of directors and our generous supporters. We all believe in the strength of women's Torah scholarship and its essential and decisive role in reshaping and revitalizing the position of women in Judaism.
