The Bircas HaTorah Distance Learning Program embodies the Yeshiva’s pledge to extend its commitment to excellence in Torah learning to the broader community. Distance Students receive private instruction from top teachers of the Yeshiva who call at the student's convenience. The calls are made over phone or Skype. The program is open to continuing students as well as new ones.
A personalized study program designed with the student’s interests and goals is created. The subject matter for learning can run through the whole of Jewish thought, scholarship, and knowledge. The learning style emphasizes teaching the skills needed to independently analyze and understand the text in a deep and profound way.
The student also has the possibility of receiving materials for each daf for preparation for the learning sessions. This includes the daf in Hebrew, a translation of the Gemara, a linear translation of Rashi, and a statement by statement breakdown of the daf (see samples below).
