“The course gave me new confidence in my abilities to decipher the text, and a better understanding of how to apply it. I felt like I was part of something greater than a regular women’s shiur.”

Course Description:

Viyadaata 5657 is known as a fundamental text for understanding the philosophy of Chabad Chassidus. In this course, we will explore the concept of achdus Hashem, the Oneness of G-d, in the Rebbe Rashab’s clear, organized and profound style. Our study will focus on the analysis of the Rebbe Rashab’s analogies, how they enable us to understand abstract, spiritual concepts and their application to our daily lives. You will walk out with a mastery of fundamental Chassidic ideas, as well as tools to tackle any text of Chassidus on your own!

Class Structure:

This is a text-based course that will focus on studying the text of the maamar in the original Hebrew with a chavrusa, while guided by a teacher. Each class will begin with the instructor introducing the text to be studied. The students will then study the text in chavrusos with the aid of the provided textbooks and conclude with a review and discussion with the teacher.

*Basic Hebrew reading and translating skills are required for this course.
