Meir Panim with Soldiers 5774 Roundup: Year of Relief and Service for Israel’s Needy

Meir Panim implements programs that serve Israel’s neediest populations with respect and dignity. Meir Panim also coordinated care packages for families in the South during the Gaza War.



The Halacha Mastery and ‘Orach Chaim’ Semicha Ordination Program

Join Rabbi Chaim Brovender's WebYeshiva.org Halacha Mastery Program for a 3-year journey to master an array of halachic issues, challenges, and questions a Jew faces in his or her home and world in the 21st century.
WebYeshiva

Each year for the next three years, WebYeshiva.org will offer two courses of study (from Sukkot until Pesach) which will emphasize the practical halacha — know how act in the situations that arise; know how to answer your children when they ask — while at the same time providing the literacy and knowledge of the underlying halachic concepts and principles that stand behind the halachic system and guide modern poskim in determining the law.

Courses will be given in real-time via WebYeshiva’s fully interactive, video-conferencing system, and each will meet once a week. Participation will be live or via the archived (video or audio) recordings. Guided source material will be distributed in advance, and it is expected that students will spend a certain amount of time preparing and reviewing each week. Virtual e-chavruta with fellow students is encouraged. Each student will have access to private discussion, guidance, and review with the course instructor during the week. Review exams will be given at the end of each semester to demonstrate mastery of the subject matter.

 Optional mini-courses will be offered at no additional charge during the summer semesters for students that want to study other subjects not part of the main curriculum, or who wish to deepen their mastery of Gemara study. The program will conclude with a week-long colloquium to be held in Jerusalem (Summer 2016) as the first cohort of students complete the courses and receive their Certificates of Halachic Mastery. However, students who cannot commit to take two courses a year, or who can’t participate online synchronously, can undertake a personal schedule of study via the archives, benefit from the same access to our outstanding faculty, and take the exams and complete the program at their own pace.

The program is meant for Jewish men and women with some background in learning Jewish texts; preparation and review is expected. Contact our office to discuss if the program is right for you.

Sample Courses Include:

  • Kitchen & Kashrut: ( Starting October 24th)

Managing the kosher kitchen – meat and milk, forbidden mixtures, bugs and blood, and an overview of standards and hechsherim.

  • Kitchen & Shabbat: ( Starting October 20th)

  • The House and the World:

  • אורח חיים יו”ט

Overview of the laws of the cycle of the year, with an emphasis on Pesach and its preparations

    This is a wonderful program. Rabbi Brovender is a pioneer. There are many seas one could drown in, and just maybe the Talmud is a better one than internet trolling.
