“The purpose of study is the conquest of content and new ideas”
- Rabbi Joesph B. Soloveitchik
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO LEARN GEMARA?
Is it translating into English what is written on the page? Is it discussing arguments made thousands of years ago about matters that may seem inapplicable and irrelevant? What is the big deal about Gemara?
BEYOND THE SUPERFICIAL
At Migdal, we apply a method designed to encourage the investigation of ideas. Rather than sit in a class and be lectured on what the text says, you become part of a process of creativity and imagination, applying your mind to uncovering the conceptual foundation of the very Torah itself.
PULL BACK THE CURTAIN
To peer into the minds of the great Abaya or Rava, Rambam or Ramban, Rashi and Tosafot, or any of the other countless great Sages of Torah, is an experience unlike any other. You join with the rebbe in exploring the depths of wisdom, crafting new concepts and approaches, appreciating the Torah as never before.
Here at Migdal, you will learn how to think, how to truly learn Gemara, and, you will leave the Yeshiva with the tools needed for lifelong independent study in all areas of Torah.
