Description: A completely skills based curriculum, in which Talmud (Gemara), is studied intensely by all male students, during a 10 period weekly time block.
Objective: Students will acquire all the necessary skills to enable them to learn Talmud independently, according to our traditional, analytical approach.
Areas of Focus:
- Reading & pronunciation
- Punctuation & Structure
- Critical thinking and analysis
- Methodology for Rashi and Tosafot analysis
Course of Study: All grades study the same tractate of Gemara, allowing for conversations and discussions amongst students and teachers. The learning of one tractate also allows for a unifying factor in the school, as at year’s end, we celebrate the completion of our learning together with a beautiful siyum, Gemara awards, and words of inspiration from various rabbis on staff.
This year’s masekhet (tractate): Kiddushin (chapter 2).
