A Summer of Torah Study in the JTS Beit 米德拉什

Nis协会 is a summer program where students immerse themselves in Torah learning, cultivating the skills to  access classical Jewish sources: Talmud, 米德拉什, 哈拉卡, 希伯来语, and parshanut (Torah and its commentaries). The program is split into two four-week sessions. Students can elect to participate in either session or both.

See course listings below, including optional 希伯来语 courses. 问题? 请随时与我们联系 nis协会@zengyihou.com.
