General Information

Founded in 2007, Torat Hanefesh – The School of Jewish Psychology ( is now entering its 8th year.

Torat Hanefesh offers multidisciplinary studies in the areas of Jewish psychology, from a diverse group of over 15 lecturers and professionals in the field.

We do not teach psychology from a Jewish perspective, but rather the authentic and purely Jewish approach to psychological well-being taught by the sages of the generations, focusing (but not limited to) the teachings of the Ba'al Shem Tov and his disciples. Based on the rigorous and in-depth expositions of these topics by Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh (, our coursework is laced with workshop-style classes that place greater emphasis on turning theory into practice, thereby offering both professionals and non-professionals a true understanding of our mental well-being and ailments as Jews.

Key courses include: Rectifying the Ego, Anatomy of the Soul, the Ba’al Shem Tov’s 9 Stage Process for Change, Faith and Confidence, Experiencing the Sacred, Senses in the Super-consciousness, Wondrous Jewish Healers, Psychopathologies of Our Generation.

Torat Hanefesh offers a 3 year certification program for women in Jewish Psychology (non-accredited) taught on Mondays at the Hebrew University, Mt.Scopus campus. Men can attend via live internet broadcast and recorded lectures.

Please join us for a one day introduction to Torat Hanefesh and Jewish Psychology from 10am to 2:30pm on June 30, at the Maiersdorf (faculty) building at HebrewU., Mt.Scopus. For women only.
