We are very excited to announce a complete restructuring of the Tomer Devorah Weekly Schedule. With our brand new schedule, every student will have the opportunity to:
- Pick your own classes
- Place an emphasis on Tanach, text, Halacha or Hashkafa
- Create your own unique weekly schedule of classes and breaks
- Challenge yourself with the new Matmidot Program
How does the new Tomer Devorah Schedule work?
Pick your own classes
Courses are divided into 4 categories: Tanach, Halacha, Hashkafa and Eretz Yisrael. (In addition, all students have 4 weekly hours of Rakezet Classes and 4 weekly hours of Night Classes.) In each category there is a minimum requirement of weekly class hours that each student must take.
Each of the 4 categories has Core Courses that all students must choose from, and Elective Courses that represent a selection of classes that students can choose to fulfill their weekly class requirements, or take as study periods, or for personal time.
Within the categories of Tanach, Halacha, Hashkafa and Eretz Yisrael, there are a variety of courses, teachers and class-styles to choose from… Place an emphasis on Tanach, text, Halacha or Hashkafa
With the new schedule flexibility, a student can choose her classes throughout the week to reflect those areas of study that she would like to emphasize more.
Create your own unique weekly schedule of classes and breaks
Once a student’s Weekly Schedule contains the required weekly courses in each of the categories outlined above, she will have the opportunity to fill her schedule with more classes of her choosing, stressing whichever classes or Beit Midrash sessions that appeal to her.
Even within the Core and Elective Requirement 10 Courses, there are options for a range of classes. For example, those that are more text-focused versus those that are more conceptual, or those that involve more independent work versus those that are in a classroom environment.
Take it to the next level with the new Matmidot Program
For students looking to really challenge themselves for the year and place a strong emphasis on pushing their academic boundaries, we are proud to now offer the Tomer Devorah Matmidot Program. Students looking to fully take advantage of the wide variety of classes and Beit Midrash study periods that Tomer Devorah has to offer sign up for the Matmidot Program.
