MerkosWomen offers beautiful residential accommodation for program participants, conveniently located next door to the Merkos learning centre. The dormitory home is meticulously maintained and features a casual lounge and dining zone, spacious and well equipped kosher kitchen and twin share bedrooms. The residence is surrounded by picturesque gardens with an outdoor relaxation area and a swimming pool. A formal lounge is also part of the property, as well as a private reading area featuring multiple workstations and computers.
In this stately mission-style home, participants will experience an extremely comfortable and happy communal lifestyle for the year of the program. With all their physical needs taken care of, students are able to dedicate their time to Jewish growth and study.
Students who immerse in the full seminary experience or those who dip in for part time programs in the dorm, benefit immensely from experiencing how a Jewish home operates on a day to day basis. Whether its preparing the home for Pesach or baking heavenly loaves for Shabbos, the dorm offers women the perfect stepping stone towards training how to become the CEO's of their own homes.
MerkosWomen is located in the heart of Melbourne's vibrant Jewish & Chabad community in East St Kilda. The dormitory is minutes away (walking) from Melbourne's kosher shopping district and public transport.
