Yesodei Hatorah

http://masaisrael.org/sites/default/files/Yeshivat-Yesodei-HaTorah.jpg

Program Description

The program is designed to provide a serious, skill-based and student-centered curriculum in Gemara and other central texts. It is developed by serious educators and talmidei chachamim, with an eye towards helping our students become independently skillful bnei Torah. Our student-centered curriculum includes courses in the classic works of the Jewish tradition, in order to expose students to the foundational texts and ideas that form the basis of Torah and Judaism. Talmud (iyun and bekiyut), Halacha, Chumash with Rashi and Ramban, Nach, and Jewish philosophy are all integral parts of our curriculum.
 
Each course is designed to help students become independently skilled in the texts being studied. The Jewish philosophy curriculum deals primarily with the classic medieval Jewish philosophers, such as the Rambam, Ramban, R. Yehuda HaLevi, and R. Albo. After studying the great ideas and philosophical positions of these Rishonim, students are exposed to those same ideas as dealt with by modern thinkers, such as Rav Soloveitchik and Rav Kook.

The program for overseas students is completely integrated into the Israeli program, and is ideal for students with a serious commitment to Torah study who wish to progress in their avodat Hashem while developing a strong bond with Israel. Its curriculum focuses on four major areas: Gemara, Halacha, Tanach, and Jewish Thought, and is unique among programs for young women in that the bulk of study revolves around the Beit Midrash.

Learning at Pardes

<div class="masa-blog-title">Learning at Pardes</div>

 
By Zach Margulies, Pardes
 
After my first month at Pardes, I started getting into the routine of classes, and developed a pretty good sense of how the rest of the year would look.
 
They way we learn here is very different from the way we learn in college; in college, classes meet two or three times a week for an hour at a time, and the bulk of the work is done at home, alone.
 
 

Tomer Devorah

http://masaisrael.org/sites/default/files/Tomer-Devorah.jpg

Program Description

Our curriculum consists of a wide range of fundamental topics that form the backbone of Torah knowledge for any Jewish woman. In addition, there are two levels of electives offered. Our highly academic program is recognized for college credits.
 
In addition to the classroom time spent in our required Yediat Ha’aretz course, we go on a wide variety of tiyulim throughout the year spanning the breadth of the Land. These trips are geared towards engendering in the students a true ahavat ha’Aretz. Likewise, Shabbatonim in various cities in Israel offer the students an entirely different perspective on life in Eretz Yisrael. Students are called upon during their year in the seminary to contribute to the lives of Jews living in Israel. Our chessed program is fluid and flexible, as students are given a choice of venues in which they would like to be involved.
