About WIT

The Rebbetzin Frieda K. Hirmes Women’s Institute of Torah (WIT) was founded by Rabbi Shlomo Porter and Rebbetzin Ettie Rosenbaum in 1986 in response to a need for continuing Torah education for women of the Baltimore Jewish community. Mrs. Hannah Storch, a"h, chose to honor the memory of her beloved mother, Rebbetzin Frieda K. Hirmes, through supporting WIT. The programs and organization have grown tremendously, and now include women of  diverse backgrounds and in all stages of life.

Since its inception, women have been drawn to the stimulating and
inspirational high-quality classes and programs that WIT offers. WIT courses are designed to elevate a woman’s appreciation for Jewish learning and growth and inspire action in all areas of life guided
by Torah wisdom. Classes are presented at various learning levels,  including but not limited to text base courses and philosophical courses. WIT has become a national model for other communities committed to providing quality women’s Jewish education.

WIT is currently under the leadership of our Program Director, Andrea Schulman  and our President, Leah Berry. Our Board of Directors and lay leaders are quite active in the day to day operations of the organization.
