Simchat Torah means “Joy of God’s Teaching and Instruction.” Beit Midrash means “House of Study.” So, when put together Simchat Torah Beit Midrash (STBM) is essentially “joy in study”. STBM aims to motivate people to reach their potential at the personal and professional levels while teaching, encouraging, and strengthening them to be leaders and have moral fibre and the right attributes.
Here are its divisions
