The Merkaz HaBayis Women’s Learning Division offers a wide array of programming geared for women, including informative shiurim given by our community’s foremost Torah leaders, and social opportunities throughout the year. Conceived and nurtured by the visionary leadership of Rabbi Baruch Yehuda Gradon and Mrs. Sarah Gertel, Merkaz HaBayis is fueled by the sincere desire of prodigious women intent on raising themselves, families and community to uncompromisingly greater spiritual heights. Since its inception Merkaz HaBayis has become a phenomenon of growth and excitement, offering over a dozen programs, a consistent base of over 350 attendees and its unique ‘inside out,’ grass-roots programming philosophy.
Merkaz HaBayis is committed to pinpointing the diverse needs withing the greater LA community and to creating and executing effective, custom programming to meaningfully address those needs. From Beverlywood to Beverly-La Brea, from tweens, teens and millenials to women of all ages across the LA communal spectrum, Merkaz Habayis aspires to uplift, connect, and nurture the Frum/observant Jewish feminine spirit.
