Since our inception in 2009, Yeshivat Maharat has been no stranger to questions and concerns that have been raised by some in the Orthodox community. Despite the excellent work being done by our students and graduates across North America, every few years there have been attempts to halt the flourishing of female leadership. We have always responded by continuing to improve our curriculum and recruit stellar students, fulfilling our mission of creating a credentialed pathway to ordain Orthodox women to serve the Jewish community.
