      The women who are teaching at the front-line women's institutions like Matan, Nishmat, and Midreshet Lindenbaum are often more educated in secular studies than many of the men who are teaching in the yeshivot, since men's yeshiva education is more constricted than that of women. Heart attacks tend to strike women later in life (average age of 72 compared with 65 for men) but tend to be deadlier: 26 percent of women age 45 and older die in the year after their first heart. The yeshiva meets at Manhattan’s Reconstructionist West End Synagogue, which doubles as a library: Books line the walls, and students sit at long tables throughout the room.
