Learning & S’dorim

How we go about it


The Yeshiva offers classes for students on every level of knowledge. Our hand-picked Hanholo members & Shluchim (at a very large ratio per Bochur), are fully and solely dedicated to helping each student grow in learning and Chassidishkeit.

Gemoro Iyun & Girsa

Iyun Shiurim are split up into three levels; beginners, intermediate & advanced.
There are both Chavrusa learning & Shiurim for each level.
In Girsa, there are quotas for Bochur to learn the most he can according to his capabilities.

Chassidus Iyun & Girsa

In Chassidus Iyun there are 3 levels: beginners, intermediate & advanced.
Chassidus is learned in Chavrusa & in Shiurim.
In Chassidus Girsa, we learn Avodadike Ma’amorim, emphasising Ma’amorim of the Rebbe.


There is a special Halacha department headed by a world renowned Ba’al Halacha.
He has set up a Halacha curriculum for the varying levels, from Kitzur Shulchan Oruch, to in-depth understanding of the Alter Rebbe’s Shulchan Oruch & comparing it to the other Poskim.

Nach & Divrei Y’mei Yisroel

There are S’dorim for Nach, and a Shiur in Jewish history, with a special emphasis on the order of transmission of the Torah Sheb’al Peh, and getting to know the background of the Tano’im, Amora’im, Rishonim & Acharonim.

Inyonei Geula U’Moshiach

Aside from Geula and Moshiach being emphasized in every topic that is studied, there are special Shiurim on topics pertaining to Geula and Moshiach with the intention of bringing warmth and Chayus in the anticipation of the Geula & the preparation to greet Moshiach.
