Additional information for SVARA-Inspired Learning


SVARA is a traditionally radical yeshiva dedicated to the serious study of Talmud through the lens of queer experiences. SVARA’s unique pedagogy makes Talmud study in the original accessible—for the first time in Jewish history—to all who want to learn. At SVARA, everyone—queer, straight, trans, alef-bet beginners, experienced talmudists, secular, religious, Jews, non-Jews—everyone learns together in a mixed-level beit midrash that recognizes as crucial the insights of all.

Our learning in this beit midrash is informed by SVARA’s values and pedagogy.
