The Julis-Rabinowitz Program on Jewish and Israeli Law at Harvard Law School, presents:
“The Innovation of the Baal Teshuva Yeshiva, Its Educational Philosophy, and Model”
A Lecture by Rav Nota Schiller
Rav Nota Schiller will speak about the innovation of the Baal Teshuva yeshiva, its educational philosophy and model. An institute of advanced Torah study catering for those coming to in-depth Jewish study relatively late in life must find a way to balance teaching the foundational principles of Judaism and Hebrew (and Aramaic) linguistic skills with equipping students to develop the higher-order analytical skills for the hypothetico-deductive study of the Talmud. The social side of such an institution is also of vital importance, and developing an esprit de corps among the students is of paramount importance.
