Bet Av, the Center for Creativity and Renewal in Torah, was founded in 2001by Rabbi Dov Berkovits and focuses on a multi-disciplinary approach to programs that stress personal creativity and commitment to tikkun in the community. Bet Av’s educational mission is to integrate the student’s imagination and feelings with cognitive and affective study and growth. Programming is grouped into four areas. First, Bet Midrash Talmud Chai focuses on new techniques for study and teaching of Talmud and its application to contemporary culture, including research and publication of articles and books. The Center for Judaism and the Arts is involved with research, teacher training, one-time and full year workshops in schools and art camp. Halichot Olam combines activism, Torah research and educational programming in the area of Judaism and the evnironmwent. Lastly, there are classes, workshops, and seminars.
