We believe that true religious growth must be based on understanding. The Maria and Joel Finkle Overseas Program at Midreshet Lindenbaum provides the combination of a rigorous, challenging learning program and a supportive religious environment that encourages students to develop and to delve, to discuss and to debate, and ultimately to decide on a more mature and profound commitment to Torah and Mitzvot. We believe that all areas of Torah, both Torah She’Bichtav and Torah She’B’al Peh must be studied with the same intensity and reverence. The outstanding nature of our student body deserves and demands no less. An administration that is open, approachable and honest sets a standard of integrity and honesty that students learn to match. Teachers who respect each other and their students are role models of excellence in interpersonal relationships as well as dedication to Torah. The academic and personal expectations of a Lindenbaum student are very high. So too are the expectations of the school. We believe in our students’ ability to meet these expectations and we communicate this confidence to them. At the end of the year a Midreshet Lindenbaum student will have a deeper commitment to Torat Yisrael, a stronger connection to Eretz Yisrael and a greater love of Am Yisrael.
