Derech - Ohr Somayach

Program Description

The Derech Institute for Torah Studies at Ohr Somayach is designed for motivated post-high school students who may not have had a strong formal Jewish education but who have the intellectual capabilities and motivation to independently study classical Jewish texts.
 
Daily, in-depth shiurim in Talmud, Mishnah and Gemara will teach you vocabulary, reading skills and textual analysis and provide you with background information and an introduction to the fascinating world of classical Talmudic commentaries of all periods. Chesed (giving to others) activities such as packing food parcels for poor families, helping the elderly, and mentoring underprivileged youth are also an integral part of the curriculum.
