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.
