Academics

Prozdor students will experience an innovative blend of traditional beit midrash learning and progressive educational methods.

BEIT MIDRASH SEMINARS

The heart of Prozdor's academic program, these periods will allow students to work together to delve into biblical and rabbinic texts and to understand them on their own terms. With support and guidance from their teachers, students will gain tools to approach these texts and ideas in an authentic and accessible way. In the process, they will build skills for Jewish text study and engage deeply with the core concepts and values of Jewish tradition.
