  • BEIT KNESSET
    The Ganei Ha’Ela Beit Knesset will serve as the spiritual center of Avodat Hashem and communal, religious life. Led by Rav Gottlieb, the Beit Knesset will be the spine of our community serving as our makom tefilla and Beit Midrash. Torah is the source of life of the Jewish people and it will be at the heart of our community. A Beit Midrash will be filled with seforim and – more importantly – the vibrant “kol Torah” of chavruta learning and a multitude of regular shiurim. Additional “parent-child learning programs,” special shiurim, and seasonal Yamei Iyun will provide further opportunities for Torah study. As the heart of the community, the Beit Knesset will be beautiful and welcoming to adults and children alike and will be a true place of Godliness and Torah and Tefillah.
  • LOCATION
    LOCATION By situating the community within the vibrant Ramat Beit Shemesh – just down the road from Ramat Shilo – we will be able to create an independent community while, at the same time, remaining conveniently located in close proximity to the schools, shopping, doctors, and other services available in the greater Beit Shemesh area.
