Studying Gemara is the centerpiece of the Talmud program, though other texts including the Mishna and books of Halakha are explored as well. The program provides students with perspectives both deep and wide: two days of learning which are dedicated to iyun both in chavruta and shiurim, as well as a shiur in Yerushalmi Sanhedrin. An optional third day of learning is dedicated to a personally structured seder, a shiur in Halakha and a shiur in Mishna.
The Advanced Talmud Program emphasizes both traditional approaches to learning as well as academic-style research. As a result the program includes Master's level research courses as well as conventional Beit Midrash and paired chavruta study. Classes include the Historical Development of Commentary, the Aramaic and Babylonian Language of Chazal, Customs, the Philosophy of Halakha, and Between the Babylonian and Jerusalem Talmuds.
Students in the Advanced Talmud Program have an option of taking classes toward a Master's Degree in Talmud from Bar Ilan University. The M.A. track is research based, and includes writing a thesis advised by Bar Ilan professors.
