This special hour is geared toward reflection upon texts, concepts, arguments, and ideas that students have encountered over the course of their week at Amudim. This time allows students to consider and articulate which ideas spoke to them, their personal positions on matters, and how the disparate aspects of their learning fit into the larger tapestry of their intellectual and spiritual Jewish identities.
