A Groundbreaking Makom Torah for Medical Students in Israel 

Associated with

Technion American Medical School


Our Vision


Our generation needs more than ordinary doctors.

 We need extraordinary leaders in all areas of medicine and medical halacha.

In today’s rapidly evolving world, the Jewish doctor has the dual responsibility to be professionally skilled while also becoming a learned talmid chacham capable of tackling the complex issues in medical ethics and halacha that he will undoubtedly face.

In the Beit Medrash Govoha for Medical Halacha, these responsibilities become an actualized reality.

The Beit Medrash Govoha for Medical Halacha is the first Beit Medrash of its kind anywhere in the world - affiliated with an accredited medical school and fully dedicated to analyzing the interface between medicine and halacha.

Based near the Technion’s Bat Galim campus in Haifa and affiliated with the Technion’s American Medical School (TeAMS), The Beit Medrash Govoha is run under the leadership of HaRav Asher Weiss shlit”a, one of our generation’s leading Poskim and experts in medical halacha.

The Beit Medrash Govoha is a unique environment for B’nei Torah enrolled in TeAMS, allowing them to maintain the highest standards in their learning and in their ongoing medical education and training.


A unique medical school course schedule allows students in the Beit Medrash Govoha for Medical Halacha to pursue their medical degree from the Technion’s Medical School while also learning for semicha certification in the field of Medical Halacha.

Our students develop into expert physicians and talmidei chachamim with a broad understanding of how to confront today’s evolving challenges in medical ethics, technology and medical halacha.
