בית מדרש Fellows Program
SAR High School is designed to serve as a vibrant center of learning for all members of the school community. Both students and adults have the opportunity to engage in meaningful, active learning throughout the day. The school also strives to respond to the individual needs of students by providing them with the opportunity to work in small groups, actively engaging Torah texts guided by knowledgeable and talented young men and women. Our בית מדרש Fellows program helps make our school an exciting and lively learning environment fostering strong relationships and personalized learning experiences.
Thirteen בית מדרש fellows, both men and women, participate in the life of our school each day. Six of our fellows are Israeli citizens having completed programs of learning and army or sherut leumi service. Other fellows are completing advanced Judaic Studies at institutions of Torah learning in the United States. Fellows divide their time between personal learning, our professional development program, and learning with students in Judaic Studies classes.
בית מדרש Learning
The presence of young adults learning in our בית מדרש serves as an important model for our high school students. Fellows participate in a שיעור גמרא taught by Rabbi Hain, our ראש בית מדרש.
בית מדרשLearning with Students
Fellows participate in and contribute to our vibrant environment of תלמוד תורה. Fellows participate in גמרא and תנ"ך classes approximately two periods a week. Under the guidance of the teacher, fellows learn with small groups of students, allowing teachers to differentiate material to meet the needs of all students. Students in need of review and basic skill development are provided with support, while students who can be challenged with more intensive material are afforded the opportunity.
Small group learning allows students to develop their skills, broaden their base of Torah knowledge, develop a strong voice by sharing ideas in a small group and establish meaningful relationships with a wonderful role model.
