Based on the Montefiore Endowment’s successful record in teaching Torah, the learning will be presented in English and directed to lay men and women seeking to improve their halachic and general Jewish knowledge. Starting with a free ‘Taster’ session on Zoom at 8.00 pm on Monday 11th January 2021, the course will last for one year with the option of extending for a further year to gain the diploma ‘Montefiore Scholar’.
It consists of one evening class per week during term time with occasional revision sessions.
Half the time will be devoted to those parts of the Halacha most relevant to present day living, such as Shabbat, Kashrut and Prayer, with focus on practical topics such as the use of electrical appliances.
The remaining study will consist of taking a closer look at the Bible and Commentaries to achieve deeper understanding of faith and heritage with sessions on Creation and Science, Revelation at Sinai, the Akedah, uses and misuses of Midrash and Kabbalah as well as lesser known parts of Jewish history.
This is a serious study course and only those willing to commit fully for at least the first year should apply. Those selected will be given scholarships to reduce the course fee to £100 a year, payable in instalments.
