At TTB, we offer an outstanding Judaic Studies Program with the objectives of imparting knowledge, instilling a love of learning and developing a high moral character.
The major focus of our Limudei Kodesh program is the intensive study of Gemara and classical meforshim. The primary objective is to develop the language, critical thinking, and reasoning skills necessary for sophisticated learning. Under the guidance of the Rebbe, talmidim are encouraged to carefully and thoroughly examine the text and dialogue of the Gemara, Rashi, and Tosfos. The shiurim are challenging and highly interactive, so that talmidim are stimulated and involved, and encouraged to exercise their own intellect in the learning process.
Our Rabbeim place a strong emphasis on the talmid’s character development; focusing on fundamental mussar concepts such as human dignity, derech eretz, honesty, humility, self-esteem and responsibility to Klal Yisroel. These values play a vital role in all areas of development, including one’s growth in learning, one’s understanding of himself, one’s ability to confront the challenges of life and appreciation of the richness and beauty of Yiddishkeit. The program includes shiurim based on the classical mussar works, open Hashkafa discussions, weekly shmuessin, and shiurim in Chumash where these principles are identified and elucidated.
In addition, we offer courses in Chumash, with the objective of inspiring a love and appreciation for the study of Torah Sh’bichsav with meforshim. We also offer courses in Halacha with the dual goal of the students achieving a mastery of the practical laws of everyday living, while at the same time becoming fluent in the reading and understanding of the Mishnah Berurah.
We are confident that, iy”h, with this comprehensive Torah education we will develop a well-rounded, self-aware Ben Torah who has a genuine love for Hashem, His Torah and His people.
