Post-Pesach Program

For students who want a head start on their college education upon returning from yeshiva in Israel after Pesach, this program includes a few flexible options. Students may enroll in one to two specially-designed accelerated college courses, offered in a variety of disciplines, while participating in the full program of the Beis Medrash L’Talmud.

The program typically ends in early June, leaving the summer free for students to take additional college courses if they wish. Students interested in Post-Pesach must be admitted to the Lander College for Men. Contact Admissions for more information.
