Educational Deliberations: On Teaching the Concept of Shevut

Rabbi Tully Harcsztark and Rabbi Shmuel Hain
July 28, 2020

Machon Siach at SAR High School’s Gemara Education Cohort bridges together the theory and practice of teaching Torah Sheb’al Peh in a Modern Orthodox Yeshiva High School. In this second edition of INSIDE THE CONVERSATION examines the impact of our unique milieu on the way we teach challenging topics like the rabbinic prohibitions of Shabbat. Rabbi Tully Harcsztark‘s insightful paper explores the different methodologies to be employed in order to have these prohibitions “make sense” to teachers and students. The paper presents a model for how to learn, teach and discuss Torah in-depth in our schools and communities.
