This Sunday, TheYeshiva.net opens orientation week for three major new virtual programs.
Rabbi Feitel Levin, Rabbi Gavriel Zinner and Rabbi YY Jacobson joined to create a virtual Semicha and post-Semicha learning program for Bachurim, Shluchim, Rabbis and laymen across the globe.
The first, a Virtual Semicha Program — a full year course, with incredible shuirim, that will give you a Semicha diploma, and a mastery of all Semicha subjects, plus practical rabbinics.
The second, a Post-Semicha Program — a full year course mastering all halachik issues of our day, with all texts related.
Both courses will include a full year course by Rabbi YY Jacobson: Leadership Develpment, mastering the art of communication and teaching. The course will teach you how to take Torah texts and make them relevant to audiences of all backgrounds. Over the year you will learn INSIDE how to take texts of Chassidus and make them relevant, exciting, stimulating and inspirational to enhance peoples lives.
The new Semicha program, a full one-year intense course, will enable you to become a full Musmach, an ordained Rabbi, with a diploma signed by Rabbi Gavriel Zinner and Rabbi Feitel Levin. The course will cover the full spectrum of Hilchos Esur Vheter, Kesuvah and marriage, health issues, death and burial, and laws of Shabbos and Yom Tov, and practical rabbinics.
The post Semicha program, also a one-year intense course, will cover the major halachic issues that face the Jewish world today. From conversions to suicide; from divorces to autopsies; from mamzarus to electronics; from abortions to euthanasia; from intermarriage to the laws of a shul; from internet to cloning, from fertility issues to officiating at a wedding—this course will offer certification in the entire spectrum of contemporary Halacha.
For 18 years, Rabbi Feitel Levin, one of the most brilliant halachic authorities of our time, has educated hundreds of future Rabbis in the highly acclaimed Gutnick Semicha program in Melbourne, Australia. He is joined by world renowned Posek and author of Nitei Gavriel, Rabbi Gavriel Zinner. They are joined by Rabbi YY Jacobson who will be presenting courses on public speaking & teaching and how to communicate Jewish thought to Jews from diverse backgrounds.
Orientation will start G-d willing Sunday, 28 Tishrei, 5776, October 11, 2015. The actual courses will begin the week after.
Three of the many testimonials:
”With the post-semicha program on TheYeshiva.net which I was fortunate to join, we were given years of research on our finger tips. This program is a life-changer. No way we Rabbis can inspire and lead others, without this incredible knowledge.” — Rabbi Levi Wolff, spiritual leader of the largest shul in the southern Hemisphere, Central Synagogue, Sydney, Australia.
“The post Semicha Program, organized by two world class Talmidei chachomim and educators, is one of a kind. The organization, depth, clarity and curricula were rigorous and in my opinion unparalleled in the Olam HaTorah today. The program is a lifeline to keep the fire of Torah alive within oneself in order to inspire others.” — Rabbi Shmuly Geisinsky, Mechanech, Buenos Aires, Argentina
“As an attorney and one would learned for smicha, this Post-Smicha program was a tremendous experience. For one who did not have the time to devote full time to the program, even listening to the shiurim with the profound analysis of the gedolei haposkim, and going through some of the required tshuvos, has made me so much more knowledgeable about most current issues. Rabbi Levin’s sophisticated scientific knowledge and his analysis of scientific studies to explain Halacha, were impressive. I especially appreciated Rabbi Levin’s mastery of the English language. I also highly encourage anyone who speaks publicly to take the course of Rabbi YY Jacobson giving his tips and personal advice on public speaking. One will learn how to be truly prepared, and when one is, it is an opportunity to make a profound and everlasting effect upon one’s audience.” — Adam J. Fishbein, Attorney, Cedarhurst, NY
