Enhancing the Learning in our High School Beis Midrash
Hebrew Theological College is proud to announce that our Fasman Yeshiva High School Beis Midrash renovation project is nearly complete. The walls have been painted, the window treatments are in place and the floor is almost finished. Our next goal is to fill our brand new bookcases with relevant seforim (Jewish books) to enhance the learning in our new High School Beis Midrash.
We would like to invite you to participate in this most wonderful mitzvah by sponsoring a sefer or even a set of seforim, to honor or commemorate a loved one.
Hebrew Theological College is excited to announce that renovations of the Beis Midrash and College dormitory rooms are complete. The third floor rooms have been retrofitted with new ceilings, light fixtures, walls, floor tiles, desks, beds with under bed storage, personal closet units with built in shelving and stunning bathrooms. HTC would like to thank the Illinois Board of Higher Education for providing HTC with this special grant award through the Independent College Capital Program (ICCAP). It is our hope that the new lodgings will enhance the learning atmosphere for our students for many years to come.
