Template:Infobox Yeshiva EYAHT (Hebrew: א.י.ה.ת.‎, an acronym for the phrase, אשה יראת ה' היא תתהלל, Esha Yirat Adonoy Hee Tithallal, "A woman who fears God, she shall be praised", Proverbs 31:30), is a full-time college for advanced Jewish learning for women in Jerusalem, Israel.

The college was founded in an apartment in the Kiryat Sanz neighborhood in 1984 by Rebbetzin Denah Weinberg, wife of Rabbi Noah Weinberg of Aish HaTorah. Geared to unaffiliated, college-educated and professional women aged 22-30 from English-speaking countries, EYAHT introduces women to the basics of Torah Judaism. Most of its students are inspired to become baalot teshuva ("returnees to the faith"), marry and establish their own Torah-observant homes. EYAHT has over 2,000 alumnae.[1]

EYAHT offers classes on Jewish philosophy, history, prayer, Parashah, Chumash, holidays and The 48 Ways to Wisdom (a curriculum developed by Rabbi Weinberg based on Pirkei Avot 6:6) at beginning, intermediate and advanced levels. There is a strong focus on the role of the Jewish woman in her family and community, with special classes in shalom bayit (domestic harmony) and chinuch habonim (raising Jewish children). Students learn for a semester up to two years; day and week programs are available. Dormitory apartments are located in surrounding buildings.

The school is currently constructing its own five-story, 15,400-square-foot campus in the Romema neighborhood.[2]
