Lifshitz College, Jerusalem


Mizrachi Teachers' Training College was established in Jerusalem in 1921 by Rabbi Moshe Ostrovsky-Hame'iri and Eliezer Meir Lipschütz (mistakenly spelled Lifshitz). It was the first teachers' training college for national religious teachers in the Land of Israel. After Lipschütz's death in 1946, the college was renamed in his honor.[2]

The college is approved by the Council for Higher Education in Israel and offers a range of programs, including fully accredited Bachelor of Education and Master of Education degrees. It conducts research on the methodology and philosophy of Jewish education; it also operates the Lifshitz Center for Jewish Education in the Diaspora.[3]
