Beis Medrash Program
The Beis Medrash L’ Talmud, an affiliate of the College, makes available advanced intensive study of gemara to its students. The approach of the Beis Medrash L’Talmud follows the classic, analytical methods characteristic of the finest yeshivas. Students receive close personal attention from their roshei yeshiva in a warm and supportive environment conducive to their personal growth.
The Beis Medrash L’Talmud learning program functions six days a week. On regular weekdays, the program for undergraduate students ends at 3:00 p.m. A required night seder enhances the learning experience, and bekius shiurim, sichot and lectures on halakha are offered then as well.
Students have the opportunity to interact with kollel members, who participate in creating a vibrant beis medrash atmosphere. The beis medrash also hosts a kollel elyon made up of outstanding young scholars who serve as role models and resources for the entire student body. Members of the kollel elyon offer chaburos for students, and organize an afternoon learning program for interested students who have free periods during the afternoons.
In order to foster the kind of closeness crucial for growth, the entire beis medrash is divided into small groups of four-five students, and these groups meet once a week under the guidance of an advanced student in the beis medrash.
The Rosh HaYeshiva of Beis Medrash L’ Talmud is Rabbi Yonason Sacks, a leading figure in harbatzos ha’Torah as a Rosh Reshiva and Rebbe. Other distinguished members of the Beis Medrash L’Talmud faculty include Rabbi Moshe Bamberger, Rabbi Azarya Berzon, Rabbi Chaim Kirschenbaum, Rabbi Dovid Mirsky, Rabbi Yehuda Parnes, Rabbi Yehuda Shmulewitz, and Rabbi Eliyahu Soloveichik , Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovici and Rabbi Ephraim Tanenbaum.
The Beis Medrash L’Talmud program is Sunday through Thursday, 9am – 1pm. College courses begin at 3:00 P.M. Typically students in Lander College take 12 – 15 general academic credits plus 3 credits for study in the Beis Medrash L’ Talmud.
