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: Three days of learning out of which two are dedicated to Iyun both in chavruta and shiurim, as well as a shiur on Rishonim. One morning dedicated to a personally structured seder 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 from Bar Ilan University in Talmud. The MA track is research based, and includes writing a thesis paper under the advisory of Bar Ilan professors.
