About Us

Naaleh: Let us Ascend

We chose this name because we believe that education is key to the advancement in all areas of your personal and professional growth.

We don’t think that anyone who’s motivated should be limited because of other commitments, a demanding schedule, or a restricted budget.

We want to help you to reach your educational goals:

No matter where you’re located

No matter what your schedule is

No matter what your other commitments or responsibilities are

That’s why we’re here.

Our aim is to provide a quality education that works around your life, so you can grow as an individual, a professional, a family and community member, and as a Jew.

Our Vision

Your Development

We’re dedicated to providing you with an affordable and convenient education to help you reach your personal and professional goals.

Since education is the key to personal growth and success, we imbue our students with a holistic education in the Jewish sense: professional skills founded on a values-based education, with an emphasis on moral development and Torah values.

Our History

It all began with the mission to educate.

Naaleh College is a subsidiary of Beis Midrash of Queens, a non-profit organization  founded in 1982 by the philanthropist, Rabbi Dr. Harold J. Reichman. Naaleh College is  a product of Rabbi Reichman’s mission to provide an affordable Jewish education for all and a fruit of the organization’s efforts to build charitable and educational endeavors throughout the world

Naaleh.com: An education for all

In 2006, Beis Medrash of Queens created Naaleh.com, an online program that offers a free Jewish education to all, notwithstanding the limitations of location,culture, age, level of Jewish education, or financial means. Naaleh.com offers  free video lectures and classes on a wide range of Torah topics and currently has over 29,000 subscribers.

Bais Midrash of Queens is recognized for the quality education it provides

Message From the President

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. By offering affordable programs in an online format, we strive to assist our students in graduating to pursue a lucrative and enjoyable career. Our expert faculty and lecturers interact weekly with each student. The combination of an affordable program in a convenient format and caring faculty helps make earning a college degree an attainable goal for our students. Naaleh College is an outgrowth of Naaleh.com, a free educational website hosting thousands of videos on a variety of topics within the realm of Judaic Studies. Naaleh.com currently has over 30,000 members signed up accessing inspirational, in-depth classes from around the world. After five years as a free educational resource, the Naaleh Board of Directors recognized that students would gain by studying in a structured way in an academic environment, and that many of our students were interested in professional studies in a variety of fields. In November 2011, Naaleh College was born to service that need.
