    Are girls meant to learn Gemara? Isn’t there a problem with girls learning Torah? When I was a kid girls barely learnt Chumash!

    Pilpul or Shaklo Vitaryo (analysis / discussion: Talmud Bavli [almost entirely]) is the one area of Torah that is excluded from womens’ Torah Study (as per The Rebbe).

    Note: T. Yerushalmi (which is not shaklo vitaryo) can be included in womens’ Torah study.

    Not an issue?!

    I grew up in a chassidishe home and was always taught that women don’t learn Gemara certainly not in this sort of setting. When did it become ok?

    Just wanted to add an unintentional ommission from this article.
    This program could not have taken place without the generous partnership of Rebbetzin Hecht, Mrs. Sabol and Camp Emunah who so graciously hosted this program on the Camp Emunah grounds. The food and accommodations were outstanding. May Hashem bless them with great hatzlocho in their many highly successful programs and activities.

    …It is clear that when it comes to learning the Oral Law, in addition to learning laws that are applicable to them, since women are anyways studying on a sophisticated level, not only are they allowed to study the Oral Law, but they are obligated to do so. Not only should they learn the practical laws, but also the reasoning behind the laws, including the discussion and analysis within Torah, since it is human nature (for men and women alike) to derive more pleasure from this type of study. This will allow them to expand their talents and abilities within… Read more »
