Program Description

Orayta, located in the Old City of Jerusalem overlooking the Kotel, is housed in a magnificent 900 year-old Crusader building with an incredible view of the Temple Mount (Har Habayit), the Mount of Olives (Har Hazeitim) and the Judean Desert. At Orayta students will develop leadership skills and become philosophically equipped to cope with the challenges of living a Torah life in a modern secular world.
 
Students will be introduced to a wide range of Jewish thinkers including the teachings of Rav Abraham Isaac Kook, Rabbi J.B. Soloveitchik and the Chassidic Masters. At Orayta students will understand why they learn Gemara and the vital role it plays in their personal development. The year will not simply focus on one or two tractates; rather, students will probe sections selected from the entire Talmud that are relevant to their life and typify the gamut of archetypical modalities of Talmudic logic.

Program Description

Our curriculum consists of a wide range of fundamental topics that form the backbone of Torah knowledge for any Jewish woman. In addition, there are two levels of electives offered. Our highly academic program is recognized for college credits.
 
In addition to the classroom time spent in our required Yediat Ha’aretz course, we go on a wide variety of tiyulim throughout the year spanning the breadth of the Land. These trips are geared towards engendering in the students a true ahavat ha’Aretz. Likewise, Shabbatonim in various cities in Israel offer the students an entirely different perspective on life in Eretz Yisrael. Students are called upon during their year in the seminary to contribute to the lives of Jews living in Israel. Our chessed program is fluid and flexible, as students are given a choice of venues in which they would like to be involved.
