Nishma: A Summer Of Torah Study in The JTS Beit Midrash
Summer, 2013   |   Type: Link

Source: Nishma


Spend the 2013 summer at Nishma at the JTS Beit Midrash; immerse yourself in Hebrew and Torah study, and help create a more engaged and more knowledgeable future for yourself and for the Jewish people. Nishma is the only North American summer Talmud program that integrates university-level Hebrew study with intensive beit midrash-style learning of Talmud.


NISHMA is a 5- to 10-week program housed in the Beit Midrash of The Jewish Theological Seminary, home to a joyous, supportive, and intellectually and spiritually stimulating community of enthusiastic Torah learners. Using traditional methods of paired study (hevruta) and participatory seminars (shiurim), students will focus on rapidly improving their text skills in Mishnah, Talmud, Bible, and commentaries. They will also have the opportunity to work on Hebrew language skills or learn halakhah (Jewish law) and midrash. Together with senior JTS faculty, emerging young scholars, and advanced rabbinical students, participants will build a firm foundation for an informed and enhanced Jewish life in the rich cultural landscape provided by a summer in Manhattan.


DATES: The program is flexible and modular to accommodate multiple summer opportunities. While students are encouraged to sign up for the full 10 weeks, they may also participate in either Session I (May 28-June 27, 2013) or Session II (July 1-August 1, 2013). The program is designed for participants to be able to take the Intensive Hebrew Language Program (May 28-July 3 or 11, 2013) in addition.
