Beit Midrash
 
 
In Beit Midrash, students work in partnership and on partnership while delving into the ancient texts of the Jewish tradition. Students learn the skills necessary to become close readers of the text, attentive listeners, imaginative wonderers, focused challengers, staunch supporters, and articulate interpreters. Most importantly, they become an integral link in a chain of sacred interpretative tradition that started long before them and, through their work, are ensuring will continue long after them. Over the course of Middle School, students are exposed to Midrash, Mishna, Talmud and other biblical and legal commentaries. The frameworks we are using help students cultivate both the dispositions and skills that contribute to deepening their intellectual, social, ethical and spiritual capacities while exercising the core practices of critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity.
