The mission of the Irving I. Stone Beit Midrash Program (SBMP) is to create educated and committed Jewish lay leaders. We believe that an accomplished yeshiva graduate must have a broad knowledge base in the areas of Talmud, Tanakh, Halacha [Jewish law] and Jewish thought.

SBMP can provide preparation for ordination at Yeshiva University's affiliated Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary and for advanced graduate Hebraic or Semitic studies.
