At Amudim, we provide students with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interface and study with some of the most creative and dynamic thinkers in the incomparable world of Jewish intellectual life in Israel. In an effort to introduce our students to a realm of Jewish scholarship that exists only in Israel (Modern Orthodoxy at its best!), a central feature of our curriculum is The Amudim Seminar, a series of mini-courses in Tanach, Talmud, Jewish history, Jewish thought and culture, Jewish philosophy, ethics and art, taught by leading scholars and artists. Some of the anticipated seminars for next year will allow students to explore Jewish food culture and the phenomenon of feasting and fasting in Judaism, plunge the depths of Jewish liturgical poetry (piyyut) and music (niggun) and give creative visual expression to the ideas and values acquired during their time in Israel.
