The Advanced Talmud Programme has currently expanded to four days of learning.
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 are dedicated to Iyun both in chavruta and shiurim, as well as a third day for studying Bekiut.
Our fourth day is aimed at learning Halakha in-depth. We will be studying the Beit Yossef and the Shulkhan Arukh together with their נושאי כלים.
The Advanced Talmud Program emphasizes both traditional approaches to learning as well as academic-style research. As a result the programme 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.
