Naaleh College is dedicated to providing affordable, accessible, universal education with the goal of professional employment and personal development. The institution is able to make education accessible by offering courses online, via distance education.
Naaleh College believes that education is the key to personal growth and success, and that students should be imbued with professional skills together with moral development and education for values. The values Naaleh College hopes to impart to students are G-d’s instructions for humanity as expressed in His revelation of the Torah.
Naaleh means “let us ascend.” We chose this name because we believe education is the key to advancement and success in all areas of life. Naaleh College is a project of Naaleh.com, a Jewish educational website which provides thousands of Torah lectures to over 29,000 members.
Naaleh College is a subsidiary of Beis Midrash of Queens, a registered non-profit organization. Beis Midrash of Queens was founded in 1982 by Rabbi Dr. Harold J.
