Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A midrasha refers to an institute of Jewish studies for women. In Israel, it is often an Orthodox institution that caters solely to women, and roughly the equivalent of a yeshiva for men. The term is often translated as 'seminary'. In the United States, the term has also been used to refer to co-educational Jewish studies programs. In Israel, a midrasha that offers degree studies is sometimes called a machon (institute). Some "midrashot/s" accept both men and women, such as the Ein Prat Midrasha in Israel. The word "midrasha" is based on the term beit midrash, "house of study." It is cognate with the Arabic "madrasah," which also refers to a place of learning.
