Located in the heart of Chicago’s Orthodox community, Blitstein Institute, which was originally founded in 1924, is the only Orthodox Jewish women’s college between the east and west coast.
We offer an affordable, accredited B.A. program with rigorous academics in a Torah environment. Our students major in Judaic studies and often choose a second major from eleven major areas of study.
Our graduates, who enjoy preferred acceptance into Touro University graduate programs, have an exemplary record of graduate school acceptance and/or current employment. It's no wonder Blitstein Institute attracts students from across the country and around the world.
