From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Midrash Shmuel is a 'Litvish' Chareidi yeshiva located in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Shaarei Chesed. It was founded in April 1992 by Rabbi Binyomin Moskovits who functions as its Rosh HaYeshiva, and was named after his mentor, the late Rabbi Shmuel Rozovsky.

Rabbi Moskovits' gemara lectures are heavily influenced by Rabbi Shmuel Rozovsky, while his ethical lectures are influenced by Rabbi Yechezkel Levenstein. Rabbi Moskovits emphasizes a strong textual reading of relevant sources. Every student in the Yeshiva delivers, at a minimum, two chaburos ("informal lectures") a month.

Midrash Shmuel also houses an introductory program called Aliyos Shmuel, with separate tracks for younger and older students, who would like to advance themselves in Jewish learning and thought.
