Curriculum – BTM


For the morning Seder Chassidus, the Bochurim will be exploring the famous “Inyana Shel Toras Hachassidus” (On the Essence of Chassidus) which is based on a Mammar delivered by the Rebbe on the Chassidic Holiday of Yud-Tes Kislev, 5726.  It is a deep and searching inquiry into the central core of Chassidic philosophy and practice, and is not only an introduction to the subject but also an integral part of Chassidic literature. In it, the Rebbe defines the relation of Chassidus to the other parts of Torah, and the traditional levels of interpretation; to Kabbalah; to the levels of the Soul; to the concept of Moshiach; and to the attributes of Hashem Himself. He explains the function of Chasidus in the world and the imperative reasons for its dissemination.

For the evening Seder Chassidus, we will explore various basic topics in Yiddishkeit and learn the Chassidic perspective in a meaningful and relevant way. Topics include; Belief in Hashem, a Yid, the importance of Torah and Mitzvos, the nature of the world and more. There will also be time to ask questions as part of a “Da Ma shetoshuv” series (“Know what to answer”; often we are ‘caught off guard’ and asked questions we are not sure how to answer. This is an opportunity for the Bochurim to get some of these answers straight, both for himself and to share with others.)

Taught by Rabbi Zalman Friedman.



A subject all too taken for granted the avoda of Davening to Hashem every day is so integral to how the rest of the day will evolve. It is surprising how such an important aspect of serving Hashem is not focused on and learnt about more in Yeshivos. Davening is a skill, an art, and a unique way and time to connect with Hashem Himself. The more we understand, at least the basic Pirush Hamilim, and the core concepts of Tefillah, the more we appreciate the opportunity, and tap into its endless treasure and power. Humbly standing before Hashem is intended to change a person’s whole outlook on life, thereby enabling him to redefine his individual identity and purpose.

This class taught by Rabbi Yona Schneck will explore the above, coupled with learning some Biur T’fillah al pi Chassidus.



Review of general skills to identify elements on a daf Gemara, knowledge of Gemara vocabulary, expressions, rules, acronyms and Rashi script. Specifically with Mesechta Succah.

The essential course towards Smicha ordination is heavily based upon the texts of Shluchan Aroch, illuminated with the various commentaries including Shach, Taz, and B’eer Haitiv, as well as related Poskim with practical applications of the various aspects of Halacha and Minhag.
The focus is on relevant household laws to enable one to run a functioning Jewish home, and can set one up on the path to becoming a Rabbi if one desires. This is a two-year discipline which we have broken into four parts:
  • Year One:
    • The Laws of Forbidden Mixtures (“Ta’aruvos)
    • The Laws of Kashering Meat (“Mlicha”)
  • Year Two:
    • The Laws of Shabbos (“Shabbos”)
    • The Laws of Milk and Meat (“Basar B’chalav”)
After deliberate thorough learning and review of each section, students are given a Pre-test by Rabbi Levi Chazan, and then a Final test by Rabbi Elchanan Tauber. The Smicha ordination is granted to students who excelled in all areas, including attendance, diligence, participation, and of course test performance.

Taught by Rabbi Levi Chazan.
