  Beth Medrash Govoha s an institution of Higher Education that specializes in advanced Talmudic scholarship. Its primary objective is to produce Talmudic scholars and to thereby provide firm, lifelong foundations for its students, graduates and their communities.

Beth Medrash Govoha carries out its objectives through its undergraduate and graduate divisions and through its community based programs. The Beth Medrash Govoha undergraduate school is a five-year college; the Rabbi Aaron Kotler Institute for Advanced Learning is the graduate school. The undergraduate school is designed to provide the student with a thorough foundation in the core areas of Talmud, in accord with the classic model of such scholarship. The school also prepares students to integrate scholarly training into their personal and professional lives.
The Rabbi Aaron Kotler Institute for Advanced Learning promotes advanced scholarship and research in classical Talmudic and cognate studies. In addition, it is concerned with professional orientation by providing programs to prepare these scholars as teachers and administrators in secondary schools and institutions of higher Talmudic studies, and in other forms of community service. An integral part of the scholastic and professional aims is ethical and moral growth and maturity of the students, based on Jewish ethics and philosophy.
