Gemara

Morning Seder and Shiur- Iyyun: Morning Seder will be devoted to learning Gemara in depth. Under the guidance of their teachers, and along with a Chavruta or  small group, students will work to develop the skills to independently approach the text of the Gemara and commentaries, with special emphasis on asking critical questions about the text of the Gemara, and the ideas being presented. Students in Yeshivat Amit will be encouraged to use all tools at their disposal to fully understand the Talmudic text and concepts: Commentaries of Rishonim and Acharonim, complemented by modern academic and philosophical approaches, as well as personal analysis, intuition and reflection.

Afternoon Seder-Seder Sinai: Students will study Bekiut- to gain broader mastery of the Masechet being studied in the Yeshiva.
