The mission of The Women’s Institute of Torah Seminary (WITS) is to provide Orthodox Jewish women with an in-depth, values-centered, academic experience. The rigorous study of classical and contemporary Jewish schools of thought, in-depth textual study and experiential programs at WITS serve as a foundation for the enhancement of Jewish life in the home and community, as a link in the perpetuation of the Orthodox tradition and as preparation for careers in Jewish communal life. WITS’ General Studies program provides an intellectual foundation in core subject areas including arts, English language and composition, humanities, natural and social sciences, and mathematics, as well as pre-professional coursework. A WITS education enables graduates to enter professions in numerous fields or pursue further study in graduate schools. WITS is dedicated to the promotion of traditional Jewish standards and a values-oriented approach in all of its academic programs.


WITS graduates are prepared to take their places in the Jewish and secular worlds. They are stimulated to think critically and analytically. The broad-based program promotes growth in knowledge, perspective and skills to enhance personal and academic accomplishment.
