Yesodei Hatorah

Program Description

The program is designed to provide a serious, skill-based and student-centered curriculum in Gemara and other central texts. It is developed by serious educators and talmidei chachamim, with an eye towards helping our students become independently skillful bnei Torah. Our student-centered curriculum includes courses in the classic works of the Jewish tradition, in order to expose students to the foundational texts and ideas that form the basis of Torah and Judaism. Talmud (iyun and bekiyut), Halacha, Chumash with Rashi and Ramban, Nach, and Jewish philosophy are all integral parts of our curriculum.
 
Each course is designed to help students become independently skilled in the texts being studied. The Jewish philosophy curriculum deals primarily with the classic medieval Jewish philosophers, such as the Rambam, Ramban, R. Yehuda HaLevi, and R. Albo. After studying the great ideas and philosophical positions of these Rishonim, students are exposed to those same ideas as dealt with by modern thinkers, such as Rav Soloveitchik and Rav Kook.
