YU Beit Midrash of Toronto

Yeshiva University-Torah MiTzion Beit Midrash Zichron Dov is an incubator for rabbinic leaders and a resource for community education. Our avreichim are involved in a minimum of 8-1/2 hours of daily study, as well as shiurim, collaborative projects, research projects, meetings with leaders of the local and global Jewish community and development of personal shiurim all help each avrech grow in Torah knowledge and pedagogic and leadership skills.

The beit midrash delivers shiurim and running programs like our Sunday morning Community Beit Midrash, offering chavrutot for partnered study, working with collegiates and high school students formally and informally, volunteering with communal organizations and publishing material in our Toronto Torah bulletin and on our Web site. Our avrechim study in Clanton Park under the guidance of Rabbi Mordechai Torczyner and Rabbi Baruch Weintraub.

In all that we do, we embrace and promote the values of our parent institutions, Yeshiva University and Torah miTzion. In particular, these values include Religious Zionism and a universalist embrace that incorporates worldliness into our Torah.

Come learn with us! We invite community participation in all three of our daily sedarim (learning sessions), and in particular at our night seder (8–10 p.m.). We also offer shiurim and programs each day.

We are grateful for the funding and administration provided by a partnership between the Toronto community, Yeshiva University's Center for the Jewish Future, and Torah miTzion, an arm of Mizrachi. Our beit midrash is named "Zichron Dov" in memory of Mr. Bill Rubinstein, of blessed memory, whose ideals are represented in the Torah we learn and teach every day.
