Rav Heller’s gemara shiur is unique in that it provides talmidim with solid foundations in both the textual and conceptual aspects of learning. He is also known for learning b’chavruta with each of his talmidim. Rav Heller gives numerous other shiurim in yeshiva including Nevi’im Rishonim and Chassidut. He oversees the Machal Program and provides the boys with emotional and practical support and advice throughout the process.

Yiddish was the language of Ashkenazic Jews, but not Sephardic Jews Yiddish is based on German, Hebrew and other languages Yiddish uses an alphabet based on Hebrew There are standards for transliterating Yiddish Yiddish was criticized as a barrier to assimilation Yiddish developed rich literature, theater and music S’iz shver tsu zayn a Yid It’s tough to be a Jew – Yiddish folk saying [Yiddish] A hybrid of Hebrew and medieval German, Yiddish takes about three-quarters of its vocabulary from German, but borrows words liberally from Hebrew and many other languages from the many lands where Ashkenazic Jews have lived.

It has a grammatical structure all its own, and is written in an alphabet based on Hebrew characters. Scholars and universities classify Yiddish as a Germanic language, though some have questioned that classification. They had their own international language known as Ladino or Judesmo, which is a hybrid of medieval Spanish and Hebrew in much the same way that Yiddish combines German and Hebrew. At its height less than a century ago, Yiddish was understood by an estimated 11 million of the world’s 18 million Jews, and many of them spoke Yiddish as their primary language.

Yiddish has fallen on hard times, a victim of both assimilation and murder. Today, less than a quarter of a million people in the United States speak Yiddish, about half of them in New York. Most Jews know only a smattering of Yiddish words, and most of those words are unsuitable for polite company. But in recent years, Yiddish has experienced a resurgence and is now being taught at many universities.

There are even Yiddish Studies departments at Columbia and Oxford , among others, and many Jewish communities provide classes to learn Yiddish.

Subjects[ edit ] Although all students study the Talmud regardless of whether they just joined the yeshiva or have already been studying for well over a decade, when students first arrive they study the official mesechta Talmudic tractate of the yeshiva. This mesechta will always be one of eight that deal with areas of civil law. Some students will stay on learning these subjects for many years, developing great expertise in these areas, while others will study other areas of the Talmud.

Some students focus primarily on the practical application of the talmudic laws based on the Halachic conclusions of the Shulchan Aruch. Because of the large number of students in the Yeshiva, there are groups studying virtually every subject in the Talmud.

Jennie has had on my life and relationships. Jennie took me on a 3 month journey to learn about my true authentic self, my desires, flaws, healthy and unhealthy patterns, and of course, the opposite sex. She did an in-depth analysis of past and current behaviors, her exploration into my psyche and personality, as well as an analysis of my projected image, family history and social history. She discovered things about me that required her expertise; otherwise, I probably would have lived in ignorance for years.

She showed me how to enhance the good and to eliminate the bad. This is the kind of medicine that lasts a lifetime!

Yeshiva President Richard Joel issued the following statement after being made aware of the panel. In light of recent events, we want to reiterate the absolute prohibition of homosexual relationships according to Jewish law. Even as a heterosexual male with no extreme feelings about gay rights, I am so utterly embarrassed by President Joel and his statements, especially given that he is a former lawyer and professor.

Cardozo Law School Dean Matthew Diller stepped up and supported freedom of sexuality, issuing a public statement. He does not mention the Torah, and instead emphasizes that he and Cardozo embrace homosexuals: Cardozo is a diverse law school that welcomes people of all religions, races, backgrounds and sexual orientations. We are proud of our community and value the many contributions of our past and present gay and lesbian students, faculty, administrators, and staff to building our Law School and to our nationally recognized success.

Cardozo has an active LGBT student organization and sponsors a range of academic activities focusing on the legal questions raised by issues relating to sexual orientation, including faculty scholarship, courses, public panels and speakers. The Law School also has programs to support the careers of LGBT students and alumni who may face issues of discrimination in the job market.

Cardozo is diverse on an administrative level. We have done so mindful of and consistent with the policies of the Association of American Law Schools and the American Bar Association, both of which flatly prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexuality and embrace academic freedom.

I try to help students love ideas and enjoy engaging new perspectives with unexpected or surprising insights.

Among other topics, I write and teach about school shootings and the role of gender, including how recent massacres magnify the daily gay-bashing, sexual harassment, racial harassment, dating violence, and other forms of bullying students experience everyday across the nation. I often share my own long-term work experience with these issues also including: Through discussions, student and professor presentations, fiction and non-fiction film, group work, and individual inquiry, I hope students find the study of sociology and criminology fascinating and relevant to their lives.

I also hope that examining the role of social pressures on contemporary problems and learning and practicing empathy-building skills inspires compassion, and a confidence in one’s own ability to constructively impact the world as well as smaller communities. Currently, I am working on a book that examines causes for the rise in U. I founded and direct the creating compassionate communities program that operates in two NYC public schools: Pre K-8; and School shooters share a common profile.

Complaint – Zaunders Vs. Evan Zauder, a teacher at a Paramus, N. J, was arrested last Thursday after a tip led the FBI to his Manhattan apartment, where agents reportedly found on his computer hundreds of images and videos of boys engaged in sex acts. It is unclear whether or not any of that material is considered illegal. However, a Google search by the paper of his AOL Instant Messenger screen name — which appears next to his real name on a message board for Teaneck Youth Directors and on a website for Congregation Bnai Yeshurun — turns up a list of links that contain that screen name, as well as descriptions that indicate that the sites they lead to display pornographic images or videos.

Rabbi Hagler did not return calls from The Jewish Week seeking information about whether the school performed a background check on Zauder. If you look at the literature in the business world, the idea of Googling an applicant is something that only recently has come to light.

Notebook How Lakewood, N. The memorial, called an azkarah, was marked with a series of events that spanned an entire weekend last November in and around the yeshiva and the surrounding community. The revered sage was remembered with reflections on his life and contributions in public talks in the yeshiva and throughout the town of Lakewood, as well as in special supplements in the major Haredi newspapers both here and in Israel. Many shiurim—lectures on Torah topics—were delivered to uplift his soul in the world beyond.

The memorial was not a purely somber affair, however. The yeshiva seized the occasion as an opportunity to celebrate the phenomenal success of the institution Kotler had founded 70 years before. Hundreds of alumni from all over the globe returned to their alma mater for the weekend in a type of homecoming. Leaders and representatives from various segments of the Haredi Ultra-Orthodox community came to pay their respects in a demonstration of the universal esteem the Lakewood Yeshiva seems to enjoy.
