Join us this June for a week-long learning experience that will challenge your mind and refresh your spirit with a taste of authentic, yeshiva-style learning. Delve into the original texts of halacha, gemara and chassidus and discover a world of learning that is both refreshing and empowering.
This is Batsheva's 4th annual summer program and this year we're coming back east! We will be spending the week on the beautiful and spacious Vallevue Estate, in Morristown, NJ.
At Batsheva Learning Center, we believe in empowering our students to explore the original Torah texts independently and guiding them in the process of analyzing and appreciating the depth of Torah learning. We handpick our staff of experienced, knowledgeable and passionate instructors who are excited to challenge you to open your mind and delve into the world of Torah.
This year's summer retreat teachers: TBA
Get ready to challenge yourself as you delve into original Torah sources:
Chavrusa learning: In order to facilitate the independent learning experience, a large portion of the day is spent preparing material with a chavrusa (roughly 1.5 hours of each class). Teachers will assign material, guide questions, and learning objectives, and will be available to guide students and answer questions for the duration of the chavrusa time. Haven't done this before? No worries! No experience is necessary- just come prepared for a brand new learning experience
Facilitated Discussion: After chavrusa time, instructors will lead a discussion based on the material prepared. The instructor will question the students on the material they have prepared and guide them in analyzing the text and discovering deeper insights.
What our students had to say about last year's program...
"I was never given this much independence in my Torah learning before. I feel so empowered to know that I can open a sefer and learn it myself. I hope to be able to go home and incorporate this kind of learning into my regular schedule."
- Rivkie Grunwald
"After this program, I realized that there is so much out there for me to learn and discover. and that's really empowering."
- Friedi Holtzberg
"It's been incredible to immerse myself in an atmosphere of uninterrupted learning with peers who are like-minded and teachers who are both knowledgeable and empowering"
- Chana Rosa Bogart
