The beauty in the simple act of being, together.
Beit Midrash Sha'arei Shalom is a community of searching, creative, passionate souls who seek to develop a true, deep, and lasting relationship with the Holy Torah and HaShem.
Named after our founder, Rav Sholom Brodt z”l, Sha’arei Shalom is a chassidishe beis midrash that perpetuates Rav Brodt’s ideals of providing a warm, open home for nonjudgmental self-exploration through learning, prayer, and song.
May our Torah inform our relationships with others and infuse our prayer with depth, may the inspiration of our prayer overflow into our study and provide enthusiasm for how we live and may the love of our fellow Jew be the force that binds us together to grow and flourish as a community, and may all of the above be an expression of a vibrant relationship with Hashem!
Rav Daniel Leibish Hundert
Rosh Yeshivah of Sha’arei Shalom
The Brodts have devoted themselves for decades to the spiritual needs and yearnings of Jerusalem’s seekers, and established Yeshivat Simchat Shlomo as a nexus from which a Torah of joy and connection has reached communities all over the world. In 2015 Rav Sholom z”l began a new program for men called Chazon Shlomo where students studied, sang, and prayed together successfully planting the seeds of the program described above. In honor of Rav Sholom’s selfless contribution to the community the program is being renamed in his honor Sha’arei Shalom.
