The mission of The Women’s Institute of Torah Seminary (WITS)/MAALOT Baltimore 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/MAALOT 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/MAALOT’s 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/MAALOT education enables graduates to enter professions in numerous fields or pursue further study in graduate school. WITS/MAALOT is dedicated to the promotion of traditional Jewish standards and a values-oriented approach in all of its academic programs.


WITS/MAALOT 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.
