Opening the Beit Midrash
Azara is a new initiative creating Jewish text learning for everyone in the UK.
Yeshiva Open Week
Get a taste of yeshiva learning this summer!
Join the Azara Summer Programme 10-14 July in the heart of Edinburgh. Immerse in Jewish texts, deepen your relationship with Judaism, and learn how to shape your own tradition. All welcome—no matter your background, experience, or gender.
No-one said “you have to”, or “do this, do that”. People said “would you like to”, and “come on, let’s all”.
– Azara participant
Azara was formed from two grassroots groups, Open Talmud Project and Pop-Up Beit Midrash. We’re coming together from across the community because we think the Torah belongs to everyone.
Apply now for our immersive summer programme, 21 June – 23 July 2023, in Edinburgh.
Help us grow the Beit Midrash
Azara would be nothing without our friends, volunteers, and donors. If you want to make Torah learning possible in the UK, we need your help. Whether it’s a spare afternoon or a few pounds, we can’t do it without you. Regardless of your contribution, you’ll be welcome to learn with us, because we’re making the Beit Midrash open to everyone.
