OUR STUDENTS SAY IT BEST

I loved that we went behind the scenes and got a deeper appreciation for the material. I specifically liked learning the Rambam's definitions of Torah Shebal Peh. It was a birds-eye view of the inner workings of it. As women, we learn Torah Shebichtav and it was nice to gain a deeper knowledge of Torah Shebal Peh.
