Most Israelis are not flocking to synagogues or houses of study to explore their Judaism, however there is growing interest in ?finding our Jewish roots? in a variety of ways. Beit Midrash Elul, the pioneer of Jewish renewal in Israel celebrates 20 years of evolving creativity – Rooted in 35 centers from Kiryat Shemona to Mitzpe Ramon, Elul offers hundreds of Israelis a fresh and creative approach to Jewish learning and living, through study and dialogue.

Elul has nurtured a new Jewish discourse in Israel? pluralistic, open and accessible. In our Learning Communities and Batei Midrash, Elul’s graduates have shared this spirit, fostering tolerance and understanding in Israeli society, building bridges and opening doors.
