Broad Curriculum

Our curriculum aims to develop both comprehensive knowledge and skills. We familiarize students with the basics of Tanach, Torah Sheb'al Peh, Halacha, Jewish Philosophy, Chassidut and Mussar and help them develop the ability to study each of these topics, independently and in depth. 

Gemara

Integration into the Israeli framework of seven years of talmidim means that talmidim have access to shiurim on multiple levels. Boys are encouraged to attend Israeli shiurim and have the opportunity to learn with Israeli chavrutot.

In addition, three levels of English shiurim are offered for those not yet Hebrew proficient. Our ulpan and other programs prepare talmidim for entry into Hebrew shiurim.

Iyun

Shiurim aim to develop learning skills. Rebbeim and shiur assistants are present and actively involved in guiding talmidim throughout each seder.

The Yeshiva also offers different styles of shiurim to allow each talmid to find the approach best suited to him.

Together with supplementary night seder chaburot, most talmidim develop the ability to prepare and deliver a Gemara sugya within the first few months in Yeshiva. As part of our ‘Chabura Initiative’ Program, staff guide talmidim one-on-one in their independent preparation of six chaburot in the course of the year.

Bekiut

Rebbeim and other staff learn with small groups of talmidim in the afternoons to help them solidify their reading skills. A number of other opportunities are available to cover the mesechta being learned, daf yomi, and other mesechtot.

At night seder most boys study additional Talmud with an older chavruta.

Tanach- We encourage and facilitate the completion Tanach within their first year. We offer an array of shiurim that not only cover the entirety of Tanach, but also teach the skills necessary to appreciate it. This allows students to learn Tanach in a meaningful way after yeshiva.

Halacha- In addition to a daily halacha seder, we offer a number of shiurim in pertinent areas of halacha. In-depth topics include: Hilchot Shabbat, Kashrut, Berachot and "Halacha in the Workplace".

Jewish Philosophy- We offer a two pronged program of Jewish Philosophy shiurim that focus both on topics and on the philosophies of individuals like Rav Sa'adya Gaon, Rav Yehuda Halevi, the Rambam, Rav Chayyim Volozhin, the Ba'al HaTanya, Rav Nachman MiBreslov, Rav Kook, and Rav Soloveitchik.

Mussar- In addition to mussar seder, students enjoy small chaburot that study particular mussar classics with rebbeim. We also offer a number of sichot mussar on a weekly basis.
