Program Description

Yeshivat HaKotel aims to cultivate yirat shamayim as part of a life of Avodat Hashem by developing students' appreciation of Talmud Torah and its connection to Am Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael.

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.
