New Sunday night learning for girls

A new initiative from Yeshiva University’s Graduate Program in Advanced Talmudic Studies offers opportunities for local high school girls to engage in high-level Jewish studies with the support and mentorship of GPATS students and faculty.

Called “Sunday Night Learning: Empowered by GPATS,” the program will feature a series of events that are open to female high school students. The evening will begin with a dinner and chavruta learning with students in GPATS, a program that provides women with opportunities to immerse themselves in post-graduate study of Jewish topics. Advanced lectures from GPATS and YU faculty, on topics that range from Tanach to Gemara to Jewish philosophy, will follow.

The first program will be on Sunday, December 18, from 7 to 9 p.m., at the Bais Medrash of Bergenfield, 371 South Prospect Ave. GPATS director Nechama Price will give a shiur, “These Are A Few of Their Favorite Things: Favoritism in Tanach.”
