Our History

It all began with the mission to educate.

Naaleh College is a subsidiary of Beis Midrash of Queens (BMQ), 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 product of the organization’s efforts to build charitable and educational endeavors throughout the world.

Naaleh.com: An education for all

In 2006, BMQ 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.

BMQ is recognized for providing quality education

BMQ established Naaleh College in 2012, and achieved Annual Licensure by the Florida Department of Education’s Commission for Independent Education (CIE).

Naaleh College was accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC) in 2018.

Our Mission

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 College continues to live up to the standards it sets for itself and those set by the Commission for Independent Education and the Distance Education Accrediting Commission

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 the attainment of the skills and knowledge necessary 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 within the structure of 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 serve that need.
