The Talmud Pedagogy Project is a one-year program that trains Hebrew College rabbinical students and rabbinical school alumni to become joyful, empathetic, inclusive, and rigorous teachers of Talmud. The fellowship aims to create a cadre of rabbis who will bring Talmud study to the diverse range of communities they serve, whether that community be a synagogue, school, social justice organization, or senior living residence. Building on your Talmud training at Hebrew College, the fellowship is structured around study of theories of Talmud pedagogy, intensive immersion in the SVARA teaching methodology, and a mentored practicum.
The Talmud Pedagogy Project will be taught jointly by Rabbi Benay Lappe and Rabbi Dr. Jane Kanarek and is made possible in part through the generous support of the Lippman Kanfer Foundation for Living Torah.
