Coming into the Alisa Flatlow program at Nishmat is like stepping into an international Torah arena. Ideas flow from teachers and students, creating an environment not just of Torah learning, but of a genuine, joyous love of Torah. The classes are challenging, but accessible, and the focus on skills-building and a holistic approach to Jewish learning mean that students feel like they can take a part of Nishmat back with them. Tochnit Alisa is not just a program, it embodies a mentality towards Torah learning and towards a Torah lifestyle.

Women who come for the winter program at Nishmat get to benefit from this incredible environment for the time they have off of school for winter break (or for our resident Australians, before school starts!). The first day of classes as a student joining a year-long program is, needless to say, a bit overwhelming. Still, long-term students are generous with their time, their knowledge, and their encouragement so that winter program students are fully integrated and involved in the classes from their arrival.

The unique opportunity of the winter program is perfectly suited for students who cannot yet take time away to learn for a whole semester or a whole year. Of course, no time is enough time to devote to Torah, but we work with what we have! At Nishmat, the amount of growth you can do in just a few weeks makes the winter program an invaluable tool for any woman with even just a small amount of time off.  – Karen Reitman, winter break 2013-14.
