Omaha is blessed with a Jewish community whose members have deep affection for each other and for their spiritual leaders, regardless of which congregation you happen to belong to.  Embracing our desire to be together and learn together, this exciting BeitMidrash (house of study) gives all of Jewish Omaha the opportunity to engage in spirited and challenging cross-denominational study with our local rabbis and cantors. Sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Omaha, the Beit Midrash brings us together to strengthen one another.
