We'd love to get to know you better

Machon Ma’ayan for me is more than a seminary or school, it is a family. Filled with the most amazing administration, teachers, mentors, and of course the students!

Going to Machon Ma’ayan was one of the best decisions I ever made. The people I met there - teachers and students alike - as well as the welcoming and homey environment encouraged me to accept myself and my Judaism, however that looked. The teachers have been a rock of unwavering support and guidance for me, and I am, B”H, still in touch with many of them today.

I know without a doubt, I would not be the wife, mother, daughter, and Jew that I am today without Machon Maayan. And although it's already been ten years since I was a student, Machon Maayan is still like a loving and warm second home to our family.

I had an amazing staff of Rabbeim and teachers to guide me through my thirst for more Jewish knowledge and to provide answers to questions I had never even thought of. They helped me strengthen my Judaism and my love for the land of Israel. Thanks to my time at Machon Maayan I met incredible people, many who I am still very close to today!
