Center

http://www.masaisrael.org/sites/default/files/center.jpg

Program Description

The aim of every serious student of Judaism is to achieve self-sufficiency in understanding Jewish texts, especially the Talmud. For the young man with strong intellectual capabilities and motivation who senses a disparity between his mastery of secular and Jewish subjects, possessing the ability to independently study Jewish classics is an urgent one. If he has only one year to devote to this seemingly impossible effort before returning to his career or general studies, he must find a program especially designed to achieving this breakthrough quickly and effectively.
 
The Center is a learning program specifically designed for the academically talented student. It is structured for one who is seeking a deeper understanding of Judaism and has a strong will to become independent in textual understanding. The program takes a holistic approach to the Baal Teshuva's integration of Torah into his life and facilitates a healthy transition to an observant lifestyle. The program is structured in such a way that the serious student will maximise his study time. The people teaching in the program have gone to great efforts to design classes which will convey the tools of Torah learning to their pupils. They combine Talmudic expertise with secular erudition and present centuries of Jewish scholarship to contemporary Jews in a lucid manner that retains the rigorous analytical style of the Talmud itself.
 
The program has its own convenient facilities, its own unique curriculum, its own special staff providing instruction and guidance to small classes so that individual attention can be provided for each student. The residence facilities have been arranged to provide a comfortable feeling of exclusiveness which allow for the expression of individuality and creativity.

Israel Trip Alums To Get New Outreach

Israel Trip Alums To Get New Outreach

September 27, 2011

Dina Silberstein, 28, never knew how to make a place for herself in the Jewish community, or even why she would want to.
Yet last Sunday she found herself scribbling her signature all over a sign-up sheet, signaling her interest in not one community organization, but five.
 
Two trips to Israel — one with Taglit-Birthright and the other with Masa — made the difference, Silberstein said, motivating her to give up a gorgeous autumn afternoon and attend the launch of the alumni division of Masa, the umbrella organization for some 160 Israel programs of five months or longer duration.
 
With the jury still out on whether outreach to alumni of Israel programs actually works, both organizations are embarking on new, or renewed, efforts to connect participants like Silberstein to the broader Jewish community.
 
“Birthright and Masa are a powerful injection of Judaism and Israel, and if we don’t create ways for alumni to express their passion, and their interest in being leaders, then we’re not really leveraging the investment we made in them,” said Avi Rubel, Masa’s director of North American operations.
