The carefully selected cohorts of fellows will connect to Torat Eretz Yisrael, learn from the highest caliber Tanakh scholars, prepare transformational lessons, and enhance their knowledge, approach and methodology in teaching Tanakh.

Classes are offered via Zoom on Sunday mornings US Eastern Standard Time. There are currently two tracks to choose from:

  • The “Eshkolot Foundations Track” is meant for newer Tanakh teachers who would like to solidify their approach and preparation in teaching Tanakh.  Classes will focus on finetuning their knowledge of BIblical Hebrew as well as parshanut skills,approaches to Midrash and a bekiyut in Tanakh.
  • The “Eshkolot Advanced Educators Track” is meant for Tanakh teachers with more experience who wish to build upon their previous knowledge in areas of Tanakh methodology and pedagogy.
