Midrash Matanya

Torah learning is an important part of daily life in Moshava. Not only do chanichim have shiur every day which connects the educational topic to Torah sources, but we also have the Beit Midrash Program (BMP).
Moshava’s Beit Midrash is named after Matanya Robinson, the son of a Moshava family, who was killed in Jenin during Operation Chomat Magen in 2002.
Midrash Matanya is located in the center of camp with the idea of integrating Torah learning into daily camp life as much as possible.
The Beit Midrash Program is led by Rav Reuven and Shani Taragin.

Rav Reuven Taragin, a Wexner Fellow and Musmach of the Israeli Chief Rabbinate completed a B.A. in Science and Philosophy at Yeshiva University and an M.A. in Jewish History and Education at Touro College (Israel). Rav Taragin is the head of the Chutz La’Aretz Program at Yeshivat Ha Kotel. Rav Taragin is rav of Kehillat Eretz Chemdah in Katamon and has also taught at Yeshivat Har Etzion and Nishmat and still teaches at Be’er Miriam.
Shani Taragin completed a B.A. and M.A. in Tanach and Talmud at Bar-Ilan University. She is currently pursuing her Ph.D in Tanach while serving as Ram for Tanach in Midreshet Lindenbaum. She also teaches collegiates and adults at MaTaN, Migdal Oz, Sha’alvim for Women, Lander’s College, and the Womens’ Beit Midrash in Efrat and Ramat Shilo.
